Dogs, beach and barbecue were the themes of Woody’s Bar-B-Q Ponte Vedra’s Open House Beach Bash, Oct. 12, celebrating the newly remodeled restaurant and the local nonprofit, K9s for Warriors.
“Corporate HQ once owned the Ponte Vedra location, but sold it to a prospective franchisee in the early 2000s,” said Woody Mills, CEO, co-founder and namesake for Woody’s Bar-B-Q. “I’m excited to say that Woody is back to the good people of Ponte Vedra Beach.”
Most of the renovation aimed to reflect the new Woody’s Bar-B-Q brand, and to keep a little originality–the beach scene mural that regular patrons see every visit remains unchanged.
The open house featured dish and drink samples, as well as raffle prizes, giveaways, magic and balloon art for guests.
Proceeds from the event went to K9s for Warriors, who help provide service dogs to military veterans. The nonprofit brought along pups “in training,” to the event, so Woody’s guests could meet and greet the furry cadets before they were sent to their new homes.
Woody’s Bar-B-Q of Ponte Vedra is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
