“This is one of my favorite events of the year,” states Helen Woodward Animal Center Vice President of Development Renee Resko. “Hornblower Cruises completely embraces the concept of pets as family members.  It’s such a sweet way to see people and pets bonding and it is really an extraordinary brunch experience.  We are honored to be a part with it!”

Guests can board without dogs, as well, or simply stop by the ticket booth to drop off donations for Helen Woodward Animal Center.
