"This event is always a great way to start the holiday season. Come on out, spend a little time with the family, work off a few pre-holiday-meal calories and celebrate the start of the season by giving by doing something that will bring your family together and help raise funds for animals in need," remarked event organizer Amy Haverstick.
The event is presented by Two Rivers Ford, and features sponsors The Trailer Depot, Yard Dog Fencing and Decks, Crockett Surveying and Home Run Pet Care.
Funds will benefit Compassion in Action of Tennessee, a non-profit organization based in Middle Tennessee dedicated to improving the welfare of animals in our communities through rescue, spay/neuter, education and awareness.
