JAVEA based dog sanctuary, APASA, organised a barbeque fiesta in the delightful Teulada Font Santa recreation area.
Surrounded by pine trees with views across the countryside, a mini village of tents filled the central area selling lots of special goodies ranging from mouth watering food offerings that included home made cakes and genuine German hot dogs to a champagne and wine bar to quench the first.
The favourite fiesta fund raiser Tombola, featured heavily in the fund raising stakes with literally hundreds of prizes on offer. Entertainment on the evening was well represented by an excellent double bill.
First up was “Swingman” Barry Peters supported by “The Swing B’s,” three girls with their versions of songs from the swing and boogie-woogie era. Not only great listening, but very easy on the eye as well. One of the girls Stefanie; is a European Champion in Boogie-Woogie and not surprisingly, the girls teach Boogie-Woogie, Lindy Hop, Balboa and various kinds of Swing dances.
They were followed by a rock band previously known as “The Band with No Name,” now changed to “The OK Band.” These are a group of talented guys who have been playing around the Costa for a few years now, but only get together for charity events. They have a great sound and are extremely popular – as the many happy boppers on the night will testify. A great event for all APASA supporters that no doubt earned a few more din-dins for the unfortunate 240 dogs currently in care at the Javea pound.
