+ And the winner is …
Daniel Hammon won the holiday edition of the Observer’s 2013 “It’s Read Everywhere” contest for his photo of himself and his dog, Maggie, pictured above at Lucylocks Pet Studio.
Hammon will receive a $250 gift card, along with a $250 Gulf Coast Gives card to donate to a charity of his choice.
Hammon’s wife, Amy, is SMH Team Captain for Relay for Life in April, and together they decided to use the $250 gift card as a raffle prize.
“Sometimes, I think that we as people don’t consider our neighbors,” says Hammon. “And I just like to give, so charity is what we do.”

Face Autism Inc. held a skate party for families Saturday, July 11, at Stardust Skate Center. Families were able to rent skates and skate for two hours for free thanks to the Sarasota-based nonprofit founded by Colleen Buccieri. The Manasota roller-derby team, the Rolling Renegades, helped children skate. The team has skated with Face Autism families for more than a year. "They're great kids," says teammate Shylynn "Tess Tickles" Gamble.
