‘Tis the season to be jolly, and caring and sharing. And Show Dog – Universal Music country singer-songwriter JT Hodges has announced that he will be hosting an intimate acoustic performance at the Gibson Guitar Showroom, 1121 Church Street, Nashville, TN on December 5th, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. The show is slated to feature original music by JT Hodges, Eric Paslay and one other special guest that has yet to be announced. Admission is $5 and all proceeds benefit the Brown Dog Foundation.
Hodges is an avid dog-lover and was motivated to host a fundraiser because of the unique mission of Brown Dog. The Foundation helps pet owners pay for life-saving veterinary care for their pets during times of temporary financial crisis. Hodges own dog, Dax, injured his leg a few years ago and required an expensive specialty surgery. Luckily, Hodges and his wife, Kasey have pet insurance, so their portion of the bill was reduced. However they recognize there are many people who are experiencing trying times and might not be able to afford costly vet bills when the family pet falls ill or gets injured.
If you’re a pet owner and have ever been in the position of being unable to obtain proper treatment due to financial constraints, then I’m sure you’ll understand just how important a foundation of this sort is to a pet’s well being. So . . .
If you’re unable to attend but still wish to help out, you can make your heartfelt contribution to the Brown Dog Foundation and help support the four-legged fury friends in times of need.
For those able to attend, it’s suggested you be prepared to:
- be generous
- be entertained
- be aware of the evening’s following highlights …
Hodges is asking that those attending:
- make a minimum donation of $5 at the door
- come prepared to give generously throughout the evening. Door prizes and Gift Bags for the first 50 guests will make this event FUN for everyone!
- Meet several of Brown Dog Foundation’s grant recipients!
And to quench your thirst, they’ll be serving Irish Dog Bloody Marys, Blue Mezcalitas and Yazoo’s Dos Perros Beer. Server’s tips will be donated to the Foundation. And additional giving opportunities will be announced throughout the evening.
In the season of caring and giving, be sure to remember our fury friends who give us comfort, keep us company and okay, have an occasional mishap. Hey, two outta three ain’t bad. And if you’re a dog owner you know, life wouldn’t be the same without them. So be sure to come join the fun or take a moment to donate if your holiday festivities have you booked elsewhere that evening.
And while you’re at it, take a moment to read about Chocolate Chip, a chocolate Labrador retriever, whose story and condition resulted in the formation of the Brown Dog Foundation.
JT Hodges, The Brown Dog Foundation and all the dogs in need thank you for your generosity.
Happy Holidays !
