If you love craft brew and want to support four-footed friends, Pints & Paws Fundraiser is the event you’ve been waiting for. On Saturday, November 3rd from 11am-3pm, Benford Brewing Company, located 2271 Boxcar Road, Lancaster, SC, will be transformed into a pet paradise where “every dog” will “have its’ day”. South Carolina’s first agriculturally operated brewery, set on a beautiful countryside farm, will be pouring up their specially-crafted beers in support of Lancaster County Spay & Neuter Project.
The family-friendly, dog-friendly (on leashes) event offers something for everyone, with plenty of free parking, only $5 per person admission, and kids 10 and under get in free. A few of the exciting things that folks can expect when they come out to support furry friends includeS live music provided by localS’ favorites SugarShine and Shiny Pines, with special guests. Mule wagon rides by Glover Farms promises Fall-fun for the whole family and Lancaster County Animal Shelter will have adoptable pets for those who are ready to provide a fur-ever home.
Cooler temperatures and plenty of fun activities call for outdoor picnic foods and Pints & Paws has you covered. Kona’s Ice of Lancaster and Chester will have all the “cool” treats kids (and adults!) crave. Pop’s Pickles will be serving up the best “Carolina” pickles made from their unique recipes. KAMS-Andrew Jackson High School Band Booster Club will be on hand selling favorite festival foods to support their music program. Locally prepared BBQ with all the trimmings will satisfy even the heartiest appetites.
In between the dog demonstrations and pet-photos by Ashley Tillman Gantt Photography, let the kids express their creativity at the Lancaster Womans Club craft area. Fur-babies will have a ball at Southern Comfort Resort and Spa Doggie Play Area and activities provided by PA’s Pampered Pets. Browse the many vendors and “shop ’til you drop” with Tab’s Crazy Boutique, Wreaths by Reese, Crafty Girl Creations, Old 2 New, Hippie Shack, Benford Bones Dog Treats, River Road Art, Christ Episcopal Church Bizarre, and Balloon Express.
Don’t miss the glass blowing demonstrations by K1 Marblebilla or free doggie goodies courtesy Nutramax. Be sure to pick up free stuffed toys (while they last) for the children and pups by Avant Garde Center for the Arts in partnership with PetSmart 1511 Blakeney.
Tickets are being sold in advance and also on the day of the event for the opportunity to take home a “Shop Local” basket chock full of certificates for food, shopping, spa treatments, and more! During the event, attendees will be able to buy tickets to win gift certificates, entertainment tickets, art workshops, collectibles, and a myriad of items generously donated by local businesses.
