Green Pets America Charities is asking the public to come out and support its efforts to fund a proposed law enforcement K-9 memorial.
Green Pets America Charities will hold a Bark-B-Que fundraiser to raise money for the project, which is being created by a local artist to honor the K-9 units that serve and protect Cherokee County residents.
Tckets are $10 and include a lunch meal and a goodie bag filled with free items and discounts from local Cherokee County merchants. The fundraiser will run 10 days and tickets can be redeemed from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 1 through Sunday, May 11 at J. Miller’s Smokehouse.
The restaurant is at 156 Towne Lake Parkway in Woodstock. The organization has also reached out to local artists to hold a pet-themed art show at J. Miller's during the 10-day fundraiser. The art opening is slated to be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 1.
Artists that have signed on to participate include Woodstock photographer Darleen Prem, Denise Rivkin, Kathryn Gentile, Peggy McMahan and Katherine Gettys. A portion of the proceeds from art sales will be donated to Green Pets America for the memorial building fund.
Founded in 2006, Green Pets America Charities is a Cherokee County-based nonprofit animal advocacy and education organization that promotes animal welfare and provides grants to animal rescue organizations.
