Milestones: Tedescos hosts WAG Night benefit to help local dogs

Tedescos hosts WAG Night benefit to help local dogs

For the third year, Christina and Eric Thompson, co-owners of Tedescos, 210 W. Washington St., kept their annual tradition of donating to the Welfare for Animals Guild (WAG).

Last week, the couple donated $1,223.86 plus more donations from customers at their WAG Night benefit.

Christina said when they moved to Sequim five years ago, they adopted their dog Bohdi from WAG and connected with the nonprofit animal rescue.

Along with donating 20 percent of sales on WAG Night, they’ve catered two of WAG’s Dogtoberfest.

The Thompsons said customers were excited to participate and their total came close to last year thanks to take-out sales.

WAG officials said proceeds support senior dogs, veterinarian bills and other miscellaneous care.

Tedescos is open 4-8 p.m. Wednesday-Sundays with 50 percent inside seating available, takeout orders by calling 360-504-3821 and online ordering at tedescosfresh.com.
