Nonprofits raise funds for PetPals

Press release from Blue Ridge Humane Society: 

Blue Ridge Humane and the Council on Aging are teaming up for the Casual Pint in Asheville’s Pints for Non-Profits on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, from 6pm-8:30pm. Each non-profit will supply a guest bartender for the night and see who raises the most tips and wins the tile of Best Bark Tender! All funds raised will go towards the joint Blue Ridge Humane and Council on Aging PetPals program which provides food, health and wellness checks, and more for pet owners in the Meals on Wheels program in Henderson County. Bring your friends, your tips, and get ready for a fun night supporting TWO awesome non-profits!

Deena Johnston, the Council on Aging for Henderson County Thrift Store manager will represent the COA with her fun energy behind the bar. Guest bar tending for Blue Ridge Humane will be Mark Warwick, General Manger and host of local radio station WTZQ. Mark is no stranger to the Casual Pint, having participated in last year’s Pints for Non-Profits for Blue Ridge Humane.

Attendees will be able to cast their vote for their favorite bark-tender with cash tips at the event. The Casual Pint is located at 1863 Hendersonville Rd in Asheville, NC.
