WOOFSTOCK helps Bark Park

Mark your calendars now for the Shelby County Parks Foundation’s fifth annual WOOFSTOCK event on September 16th at Michael Kay’s Bark Park in Red Orchard Park located at 704 Kentucky Street in Shelbyville. There will be events, competitions, fun and games for the whole family, especially your dogs! Dog events will include lure coursing, dog trick contests, doggie demonstrations, fashion contests and more for four-legged friends. There will also be booths of all kinds, food, music including live bands and other forms of entertainment for two-legged friends.

Camp Hi-Ho will again be the main sponsor, but there is plenty of opportunity to sponsor an activity, competition or another item for the dogs, according to Chairperson Cynthia Cottongim.  Sponsors for each event, vendors and volunteers are needed; proceeds will benefit the Shelby County Parks Foundation to continue improvements for the Bark Park.

Sponsorship opportunities begin at $50, with your name included on everything from banners to ads and T-shirt advertisement. Booth spaces are also available for $30. Individuals and businesses can contact Cottongim at 321-0282. Items are also being solicited for the silent auction, being coordinated by Beth Wood, who can be reached by calling 321-2549 to donate items. All donations are tax-deductible.

Cottongim said, “Last year we had 200+ who attended for a day of tail-wagging fun! Committees are already working hard preparing for the event. Let’s make this a great day for the dogs and the Shelby County Parks Foundation!”
