Bark, Beer & Barbeque
by David Stroud
The eighth annual signature fundraising event in Highlands for the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society officially starts the social season on the Plateau! The evening features a fantastic mountain-themed dinner and auction combined with the naming of the prestigious CHHS Humane Heroes of the Year. Bark, Beer & Barbeque is Thursday, June 20, at The Farm at Old Edwards. Enjoy a live and silent auction, live music by Steve Johannessen, beer, wine and spirits, and a scrumptious southern barbecue dinner from Cashiers Farmers Market.
Bark, Beer & Barbeque is limited to just 200 guests for a fun-filled experience and a true party for the animals! Tickets are $195 per person, and a portion of the ticket purchase is a generous, tax-deductible contribution to support our lifesaving mission of rescue, compassionate care, spay/neuter, and adoption, and also helps provide vital funding for our community outreach programs such as humane education, summer camps, pet therapy, and a free food pet pantry.
A highlight of this preeminent fundraiser for the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society will be the presentation of the coveted awards for “CHHS Humane Heroes of the Year.” Three awards will be bestowed to recipients who have significantly contributed their time, heart and resources to help further the mission of CHHS on behalf of the abandoned and neglected animals in our community.
Bark, Beer & Barbeque is the “must-attend” party for party animals in the Town of Highlands and sells out quickly every year, so reserve your seats today! To charge your tickets by phone, please call (828) 743-5769.
