2nd Annual Wag-Fest Slated for March 29 at Fosters Main Street Tavern
It is time again to raise your paws for a wonderful cause. Operation Underdog will hold its 2nd annual Wag-Fest Benefit at Foster’s Main Street Tavern in uptown Beckley on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 8pm. The two-hour event will consist of live performances by southern West Virginia’s favorite bands, The Boatmen and BlacKing Coal. Foster’s will have fun Wag-Fest themed food and drink specials with proceeds going to help Operation Underdog.
A $5.00 donation cover charge per person will be collected at the door. The annual event is made possible by a special partnership with Foster’s Main Street Tavern as well as promotions by Allen and Banasky Creative Agency.
With a matching contribution from Foster’s owner, last year’s Wag-Fest event raised $1,000 and funds collected were used to help pay for spaying, neutering and medical expenses of homeless and foster animals.
