Folly Beach restaurant to celebrate holidays with ‘Santa Paws’

FOLLY BEACH, SC (Lowcountry Weekend) - Rita’s Seaside Grille will kick off the holiday season Saturday with a celebration to help man’s best friend.

The annual Santa Paws celebration runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The restaurant will transform its parking lot and patio to “Puppyland” to benefit Pet Helpers, a Charleston-based shelter.

Santa will be on the scene to pose for photos with pets and a silent auction will raise money for the shelter.

Ritas is located at 2 Center Street on Folly Beach.
