The courtyard of The Alexandrian Hotel played host to dozens of furry friends and their owners at the second Barks, Brews & Bites K9 fundraiser for the Alexandria Police Foundation.
Held Sept. 12, the event featured brews from Port City Brewing along with special treats for the four-legged attendees from the hotel’s Jackson 20 Restaurant.
Sponsored by the Alexandria Police Foundation, Port City Brewing and Jackson 20 Restaurant, the event raised funds to support the retired K9s of the Alexandria Police Department.
The next K9 fundraiser for the foundation will take place Oct. 24 at the Garden in Del Ray. With a Halloween theme, it will be the first K9 happy hour event in the Del Ray community.
