When Old Salty Dog bartender Kurt Becker fell from a ladder and became paralyzed, the Siesta business community came together. The “It Takes A Village” event held Saturday, Aug. 18 raised money to help with Becker’s medical bills. Multiple vendors took part in the event, including Old Salty Dog, Gilligan’s, Blasé Cafe, SKOB (Siesta Key Oyster Bar), The Cottage, The Hub, and The Beach Club, as well as Budweiser and Premier Beverage Company.

Becker was present for the festivities via Skype. The next event to raise money for Becker is a golf tournament Saturday, Sept. 8, at the University Park Gold Course. Anyone interested in participating can call The Old Salty Dog at 349-0158.
