Paws N Pints
November 16, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Eat, drink, dance and bid the night away — all for a good cause — at the upcoming Paws ’n Pints fundraiser, to benefit the SPCA of Bradley County.
This second annual fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Southern Charm venue, beginning at 5 p.m.
According to a news release from the SPCA, Paws ’n Pints is a special event to help raise funds for a new animal adoption center. This year, Café Roma will provide heavy hors d’oeuvres and Convertibull will provide live entertainment.
“Paws ’n Pints is SPCA’s biggest fundraiser of the year,” said SPCA Board of Directors Chairperson Erica Davis. “We hope to capitalize on the success of our first Paws ’n Pints event last year and put some money in the bank for a new adoption center.”
According to the news release, live and silent auctions will give participants the opportunity to bid on a variety of quality items including Disney World tickets, a Costa Rica vacation home, a four-course dinner for four at Café Roma, a heavy duty meat smoker, a catered party for up to 50 guests, a handmade tailored men’s suit, four football tickets to the Tennessee-Vanderbilt game, several pieces of jewelry, and much more.
Tickets are $75 each or two for $125. Event sponsorships are also available for $2,500, $1,000 and $500 which provide participants with tables for eight, commemorative items, champagne and publicity on all promotional materials.
Major sponsors include The Tucker Foundation, Bonnie and Lavoy Hathcock, Re-Max Realty, Bliss Day Spa, Fresh ’n Low Food Store, Tarver Distributing, Naturecraft Homes, Foster’s Trail & Alpaca Farm, Bradley County Commissioner Erica Davis, and Charles and Cheryl Dunson.
“Since its inception four years ago, SPCA houses, fully vets and cares for approximately 1,000 abandoned, neglected or abused dogs and cats each year,” the news release stated. “SPCA is a no-kill center which means no animals are euthanized for space.”
Although Bradley County government provides SPCA a trailer and cement block building for office space and animal housing, the need for a new facility is great, the news release stated.
“We have major challenges with our existing facilities, especially in our dog building, because they weren’t originally designed to house animals,” said Amanda Morgan, SPCA’s director of operations.
“In our canine facility, we only have two rooms with drains which makes cleaning kennels and maintaining a sanitary environment very difficult,” Morgan added. “We’re also in desperate need of a dedicated medical area to improve our animals’ quality of care and life.”
According to the news release, SPCA commissioned an architectural rendering of new adoption center and is seeking approximately 10 acres of property on which to build.
“Our goal is to raise $1 million for a new facility,” Davis said. “Paws ’n Pints is an integral part of our plan. We hope to raise more money than we did last year as well as see an increase of support and awareness from the community so we can provide better animal services.”
