Paul Williams, owner of West End Trading Co. and co-owner of Celery City Craft, is the man! Yeah, yeah I know, I wrote the exact same thing last year, but the big man from Texas keeps outdoing himself!

Why is this man smiling? Because he helped raise more than $30,000 for charity.

The numbers are in from the 4th Annual Pints n’ Paws event, and they are impressive. The pet-friendly craft beer festival held recently in Historic Downtown Sanford attracted about 8,000 people throughout the day. More importantly, the event raised more than $30,000 for Dolly’s Foundation and Pet Rescue by Judy, two great local organizations.

Paul and his crew deserve a hearty pat on the back. A lot of people talk a big game but Paul is letting his actions speak for him. Whether it’s through his business ventures or charitable endeavors, Paul is making a positive impact in the Bokey. Kudos, sir!
