Remember - Carmel Wine-Kitchen-Bar South Tampa is donating 20% of all sales on April 2nd to our team!

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our residents and their families, as well as the hard work of several of our staff members, Horizon Bay at Hyde Park, as of this writing, has raised nearly $11,000 in support of Southeastern Guide Dogs, an organization based in Palmetto, Florida that employs the latest in canine development and behavior research to create and nurture partnerships between visually impaired individuals and extraordinary guide dogs. The organization serves more than 400 graduates across the U.S. and continues to place more than 100 dogs each year into careers benefitting people with visual impairments, and veterans dealing with PTSD and other physical and emotional challenges. Southeastern Guide Dogs provides all of its services free of charge and receives no government funding.

Southeastern holds nine walkathons annually across Florida as their major fund raiser, and our Horizon Bay & Friends walkathon team currently holds second place in fundraising for the Tampa Walkathon. Our team captain, Steve Vernon, who also serves as bartender at Horizon Bay Hyde Park and has so far raised over $7,000 himself, is currently the top individual fund raiser for the Tampa Walkathon, which will take place on Saturday, April 2.

As a reward for our success so far, we have the opportunity to name two puppies in training, so that we will have a wonderful ongoing, living connection to this great organization and to those who benefit from it!
