With Oktoberfest just beginning, there is no better time to have a “Barktoberfest” to benefit a local shelter.
Tonight, animal welfare organization Bideawee is holding a “yappy hour” at the Andaz Wall Street Biergarten at 75 Wall Street. People and canine sidekicks that stop by will be able to mingle with other dog enthusiasts, see adoptable pups and able to order drinks and small plates from the bar, all while enjoying the fall weather.
The New York City-based organization will also be having a raffle where people can purchase tickets with the possibility of winning some pretty amazing prizes like off a $100 MetroCard, two tickets to The Stand Comedy Club and a $250 gift certificate to Shuko restaurant in Union Square.
The event is put on by the nonprofit’s Young Professionals Committee. Launched in 2014, this group is made up of volunteers, staff and friends that are professionals aged 35 and under, who support Bideawee by organizing quarterly fundraising events. Since inception, the group has raised more than $20,000 to help Bideawee by holding various events including stand-up comedy night, spin class and trivia nights.
While the event is free, there is a suggested donation of $10. You can purchase tickets here or at the door. All proceed will go to the organization.
