5th Ave, infront of Freddy's Bar.
In conjunction with NYC "Summer Strolls" program.
Hello, My name is Donald O'Finn. I am the founder of the Dog Show, & co-owner of Freddy's Bar & Backroom. I am contacting you hoping to make you aware of a "No-Kill" Benefit & Doggy Fashion show coming up that will close 5th Ave in Park Slope. It is our 2nd annual South Park Slope Doggy Fashion Show (free attendance & free entry) & again this year is a benefit for BARC (Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition ) a no Kill Shelter.
The Doggy Show is part of the City’s “Summer Strolls" program, a community outreach that will close 5th Ave in the South Slope of Brklyn for 4 hours on , giving the community the street. Freddy’s, Smutty Nose brewing Company & the 5th Ave BID are sponsors, as well as other local merchants. 5th Ave will be legally closed to cars and opened up to Dogs, Live "Swing" Music, Dancers, Comedian Hosts from Comedy Central, eating & drinking in the street.
This is our 2nd annual, and if it is even close to being as successful as last years, it will be great success & a lot of fun.
We need all the help we can get in getting the word out, boosting participation & attendance. Please do not hesitate to pass the word, show up & or enter.
If you would like to take part with dog related products, by being included as a table in the street for the duration of the Event, we only ask that you donate a cash equivalent prize (in the form of a gift certificate) or actual product for give away & or inclusion in our prize list. You will be allowed to set-up your own small table in the street on 5th Ave between 17th & 18th street (from ) offering samples & or sales of your product. (once we approve the product) We are also accepting any donations from interested appropriate institutions, charitable parties and appropriate businesses.
