You are invited to become a part of The Splashpaw Foundation’s 4th Annual Red Carpet event. This event has grown exponentially each year, with last year filling Cabarrus Brewing Company to the brim. We are excited to host the Bark and Brew Red Carpet Runway Show again at Cabarrus Brewing Company on Sunday August 26, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.!
Pets are near and dear to so many. They are the friends who love us every day without waiver, and have stood by our sides through it all. We include them as part of the family because they are! The Splashpaw Foundation, Inc.™ was founded to assist and improve the research, treatment, and care of children and pets in our community, most specifically those dealing with cancer.
Established in 2013, The Splashpaw Foundation has helped 135 pets within Cabarrus and Rowan Counties so far. Each case benefitted by Splashpaw is veterinarian referred, to ensure your donation is spent wisely and helps a good candidate with a good prognosis. Without The Splashpaw Foundation, these pets would have an uncertain future due to the families’ inability to afford the unexpected vet bills. Thanks to generous donations and fundraising events throughout the year, we are able to save the lives of these important family members when ends just won’t meet.
The main feature of Bark and Brew is the runway show featuring Owners and their Dogs who were adopted from local rescues and animal control, as well as dogs that are still here today because of Splashpaw. Each pet owner will be styled by one of the local boutiques participating in the event. After the runway show, guests are invited to participate in both the live and silent auctions and shop the outfits modeled down the runway of Cabarrus Brewing Company.
Boutiques and businesses helping style our human models include Adair Style Studio of Concord, Love You Back Boutique of Harrisburg and Mint Hill, 3 Jem’s Boutique of Concord and Salisbury and Lovely Lines Boutique of Kannapolis. The Dog Models will be going in style as well – The Dogs Bullocks Pet Boutique is returning and will be providing their leashes!
Our Bark and Brew Red Carpet Runway Show will be our largest fundraising event this year. We are asking for your support for The Splashpaw Foundation by participating in the fashion show. Your dog and one family member, to be styled by one of the participating boutiques, will walk the red carpet runway. In addition, each dog and family will be photographed by Irresistible Portraits by Karen Goforth and will be included in the event Program.
Bark and Brew is a ticketed event, open to all ages. Each $15 ticket includes one beverage voucher redeemable for (1) pint of beer, (1) glass of wine, or (1) soft drink. Tickets can be purchased in person at Cabarrus Animal Hospital, Lazy 5 Vets, Carlos Moore Architect, Irresistible Portraits, or online at splashpaw.yapsody.com.
