The sixth annual Bark N’ Brew charity fundraiser to benefit the Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) was held on June 17 at the Southern Tier Brewing Company. The event fundraised over $28,542 for the animals awaiting adoption at CCHS. Money collected allows the shelter to offer fee-waived adoption programs, reduced fee spay/neuter clinics and other adoption services year-round to the community.
Southern Tier Brewing Company is the generous host for the event with other major contributors including Ludwig Auctions, Greg Peterson, Pepsi Bottling Group of Jamestown, Jefferson Middle School, and the five stations of Media One Group.
“There is no better atmosphere than to be at one of the best breweries in our country, Southern Tier Brewing Company (STBC), joined by individuals that are all there to support one common cause,” said Hannah Braun, Community Relations Coordinator for CCHS. “It is because of STBC’s commitment and support of CCHS that this event continues to grow each and every year,” said Braun.
Over 60 donors from the community made the live and chinese auctions a success. Some of the featured items included tickets to the upcoming Carole Burnett and Jerry Seinfeld shows, coffee for a year at Tim Horton’s, a beautiful wood-crafted four post dog bed, among many other items.
