4 Paws Got Your 6
October 14, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
We will be calling our October 14th event “4 Paws Got Your 6”. The event will be at the American Legion on rt 24 in Millsboro and will run 1-6. The focus is on Veterans, specifically those dealing with PTSD and the positive impact animals can have on the lives of these individuals.
We have 4 bands scheduled to play and 2 food trucks (Nothin Better and Lou’s BBQ) thanks to Judy Malin Mangini. We also have some great organizations and vendors coming out to share their knowledge and try to help us raise some money! Grass Roots will be taking half of whatever we raise and will be putting it towards matching veterans suffering from PTSD with companion animals.
So far we have confirmed the following organizations will be there:
*Frets For Vets
*Home of the Brave
*Ace Peer Center
*Supportive Services/Veteran Housing
*Tripaws Pet Pantry
* Compassionate Hearts
* Samantha Hudran Massage
In regards to vendors we have confirmed:
*Stella and Dot
*Dot Dot Smile
*Broken Gear Graphics
*Custom Decor Me
*Rodan and Fields
WHAT WE STILL NEED:
*A FACE PAINTER FOR THE KIDDIES.
*RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ORGANIZATIONS THAT MAY ENCOUNTER/HELP OUR VETERANS (Motorcycle groups, support groups for veterans and their families, outreach groups, organizations that help with counseling/addiction, ect…..sky is the limit).
*SOMEONE WILLING TO SPEAK ABOUT PTSD AND HOW IT’S AFFECTED THEIR LIFE.
*VENDORS FROM THE COMPANIES WE DON’T HAVE LISTED ABOVE (Pure Romance, Norwex, Initials Inc, Tupperware, Avon, Usborne Books, Damsel in Distress, Agnes and Dora, ect…). WE WILL GIVE FIRST DIBBS TO ADOPTERS AND GRR VOLUNTEERS. You can be from an established company or a local crafter. There is no cost to vendors. We are asking anyone participating to donate 1 item for us to auction off and to donate a small portion of anything sold at the event.
Let us know if you have any ideas or would like to help!!
