BARBQ YAPPY HOUR EVENT TO BENEFIT STARELIEF & PET ASSISTANCE
JUNE 7, 2016 (Stamford, CT) – BarBQ Stamford is bringing awareness to STARelief & Pet Assistance with a special “Yappy Hour” event on June 11, 2016 from 2pm-6pm. With the purchase of a $20.00 wristband, all well drinks and domestic draft beers are ½ price, along with delicious ½ priced barbeque items. Half of the proceeds from the wristbands will go to STARelief & Pet Assistance to help ensure that families experiencing financial difficulties can continue to care for their pets.
BarBQ welcomes well-behaved dogs to join the fun on the patio. STARelief may also bring some adoptable dogs to give them the opportunity for a “meet and greet”.
STARelief & Pet Assistance is a 100% volunteer organization, based in Stamford CT, that provides life-saving pet food and veterinary care, emergency boarding and foster care to pets whose caretakers are struggling with financial hardship. Since its inception in 2012, STARelief has provided over 35,000 pounds of food to hungry pets and funded over $77,465 in veterinary care to pets in need. The STARelief Pet Food Pantry is located in Stamford, CT.
Heather Scutti, Executive Director of STARelief says “We’re looking forward to expanding awareness of STARelief and having some fun on the BarBQ patio! BarBQ reached out to us with this idea, and we are really happy that a local Stamford business wants to help us help pets stay with the families who love them.”
