Donald Wells for King

Meet Donald Wells:

It's incredible to see how Donald's journey has woven a vibrant tapestry of love for animals, entertainment, and supporting the military. He loved and cared for animals from a young age and studied Equine Science before transitioning to another lifelong love—dance and choreography. As choreographer of the NBA Washington Wizards Dance team (4 years) and Director of Entertainment and Cheerleading for the NFL Washington Commanders for 12 years, he built a rare brand that entertained and delighted our US Armed Forces on 35 tours across 45 countries and ships at sea. From that experience he found a new career path that enabled him to dedicate his life to all three.

His transition to working for the US Navy as the MWR Director, managing Quality of Life Programs for military personnel, their families, and DOD civilians, demonstrates his commitment to enhancing the well-being of those who serve our country.

While working in Djibouti, Africa and Bahrain, he volunteered at animal refuges and the Bahrain SPCA. His decision to adopt two kitties from the SPCA in Bahrain, along with finding and giving a home to JAX, a dog abandoned in an apartment building, shows his genuine love and care for animals in need.

Moving to Key West in 2021, falling in love with and embracing the island's vibrant community, he found a perfect fit with the Fantasy Fest theme of "Unicorn & Uniforms" for his career background. Moreover, knowing that the Florida Key’s SPCA would be the beneficiary of the King and Queen fundraising, he readily signed up to contribute to a cause that holds such personal significance for him.

Donald's story is inspiring, and it's heartwarming to see how he has combined his passions and career to make a positive impact on the lives of animals and those who serve our country. His dedication to supporting animal welfare and the military community is truly commendable, and his actions serve as an example of how one person can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
