We had a great time at Santa Paws 2018 at the Thorndike Field Dog Park and we hope you did too! The event raised almost $700 for the continuing maintenance of the park. We captured some of these adorable pooches and their people, as well as some of the funnier outtakes. For the full album jump over to our Facebook page. See you next year, at the dog park!
Steve McKenna & The Home Advantage Team announced, ‘Charity Saturday,’ which pairs a local business with a local charity to both drive business and raise money for a number of important programs in town.
As a local REALTOR® in Arlington for more than 30 years, Steve and the Team are always looking to give back to the place where so many of their clients, business partners, friends and family call home.
“This is a great opportunity to bring together many different facets of the community for a great cause,” said Steve McKenna of The Home Advantage Team. “We are proud to facilitate this event and we encourage everyone to get out and not only shop local, but give local, too.”
On December 7th, or ‘Charity Saturday,' The Home Advantage Team will make a donation for every customer that makes a purchase at the following locations, for the following charities:
Jimmy's Steer House: Donations go to Arlington EATS (up to $2,000)
Arlington Eats - Arlington EATS ensures that the over 500 local students who receive free and reduced price lunch (FRL) when school is in session still have access to healthy meals when school is not in session.
Sports Etc.: Donations go to the Children's Room (up to $2,000)
The Children’s Room – The Children’s Room creates safe, supportive communities so that no child, teen or family has to grieve alone. They offer peer support groups at their main center in Arlington, in schools, and at community-based organizations.

"Arlington EATS is excited to participate in this new event that supports so many local organizations,” said Andi Doane, Executive Director at Arlington EATS. “It's a great way to bring the community together to help others on so many different levels. We are looking forward to a great turnout throughout the town on Saturday, December 7th."
