BELLEAIR BLUFFS — The Belleair Bluffs Business Association’s Wine Walk on March 30 attracted more than 800 guests, up from 500 in years past.

The money raised from the event, which included business along Indian Rocks Road and West Bay Drive, goes back into the community in several ways. The organization sponsors the Bluffs Fourth of July picnic and the holiday tree lighting. The association also makes donations to Shepherd’s Village, the Suncoast Performing Arts Foundation theatrical camps as well as supporting other charitable causes.

Business owners who dedicated many hours to organizing and running the event are Dr. Kimberly Bender, Dr. Patrick Lepeak, Dr. Kathie Erwin, Karen Rodowicz, Marya Flurnoy, Gary Fustino and Bonnie Trembulak.

“Our group of  four Canadians had a fabulous time last night.  Great food, great wine and amazing organization,” said Bert Beechy. “One of us even purchased shoes at one stop.”
