Ben Hennington for King

Meet Ben Hennington:

Ben Hennington is not new to raising money for the community.

He is the founder of the Sunset Social Drinking Club (SSDC), Wienerpalooza and co-founder of POSH (Paws Often Steal Hearts), which all champion the welfare of shelter animals and finding forever homes for our furry friends.  Ben is a Key West transplant displaced by Hurricane Katrina and spent over 2 decades living in the lower Garden District & Bayou St. John in New Orleans.  

Ben is an avid Key West socialite and in his spare time leading the SSDC, his hobby, which is a charitable organization that gives back as much as possible to the community that they are a part of.  To date, the SSDC has helped raise over $150K for the FKSPCA and over $300K in total for other local charities.

When Ben is not actively volunteering & assisting in community endeavors and business aspirations, you can find Ben in his “office” in the back room of Shots & Giggles working on a project.

Ben has a residence in both of his favorite cities, claiming dual citizenship.  He is living, not dreaming his best life.
