Pups and Pigskins Event to Benefit Kids and Canines

Dog-friendly event raises money for charity that works with at-risk youth.

Leash your friendly pup, dress him in his best football-themed attire and head out on Sunday October 14 to "Pups and Pigskins."

The event held from 2:00p.m.-5:00p.m. on Sunday at the Dale 1891 Gastro Pub will benefit Kids and Canines, a local non profit that helps at risk youth.

“We hope a lot of residents attend the Yappy Hour to benefit Kids and Canines since it is a local nonprofit in our backyard,” said Laura Fontanills, vice president for High Hopes in High Heels, who helped organize the event.

Dale 1891 Gastro Pub is located at 11742 N. Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa, Fl.
