Dimmitt Automotive Group was proud to sponsor the St. Petersburg Yacht Club’s annual Vintage Motor Classic. A car show which brings together vehicles from all great automotive eras, the Vintage Motor Classic has been running for almost two decades to raise money for charities.
This year, the St. Petersburg Yacht Club chose to support both the Pet Pal Animal Shelter and Music Sweet Music, Inc.
Pet Pal Animal Shelter
Originally known as Pet Pal Animal Rescue, Pet Pal Animal Shelter has grown from a two-women organization in Orlando to a fully-fledged nonprofit shelter in St. Petersburg complete with a veterinary clinic and a fundraising thrift store.
Pet Pal Animal Shelter was founded by two women who were disheartened by the number of stray animals who had to be euthanized as a result of animal overpopulation and neglect. They formed Pet Pal Animal Rescue in the hopes of finding forever homes for the area’s strays.
Staying true to their original mission, Pet Pal Animal Shelter is a no-kill operation, only euthanizing animals as a last result in cases of terminal illness or incurable aggression.
Music Sweet Music, Inc.
Music Sweet Music, Inc. is a nonprofit organization which connects board certified music therapists with children and adults battling serious illnesses and disabilities. The charity uses music therapy to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs in individuals. Founded in 2001, Music Sweet Music, Inc. has expanded their programs to serve patients in Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, Shriners’ Children’s Hospital, and several other local hospitals.
