This past weekend, our Bainbridge Island brokers attended the first ever Raise the Woof Benefit Concert at Rustica Island Farm, sponsored by the Kitsap Humane Society. The group relaxed at a private table and enjoyed refreshments catered by local Bainbridge wineries, breweries and catering companies. The evening opened with St. Paul de Vence, a Seattle-based indie folk band famous for their evocative storytelling and breathtaking harmonies. They were followed by the night’s headliner, American soul singer Mycle Wastman, a contestant on season three of The Voice. DJ Fever, one of Seattle’s hottest DJs, emceed the event.

"It was a great time with good company," says Meg Burkett, Broker at Realogics Sotheby's International Realty. "A good cause, wonderful food and great music."

Founded in 1908, the Kitsap Humane Society is a nonprofit, no-kill organization that admits some 4,200 animals a year. It has one of the highest lives-saved rates in the United States. Learn more at
