NEWINGTON - Kick off summer with a rustic evening in a historic barn featuring food demonstrations, local craft beer, silent auctions and more - all to benefit pets in need at the Connecticut Humane Society.
Fetch your seats today for the Bark-B-Que celebration, set for Saturday, June 2, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at A.S. Labieniec’s barn, 945 Farmington Ave., Berlin.
The event is a partnership between the Connecticut Humane Society, A.S. Labieniec and Flora and Rooster Co. restaurants, highlighting local businesses while saving local pets.
Guests will enjoy food demonstrations by chef K.C. Ward, co-owner of Flora, a vegan-friendly restaurant in West Hartford, and Rooster Co., a farm-to-table contemporary eatery in Newington. His delicious menu of barbecue and vegan eats will be offered as appetizers.
The event is family-friendly. Youngsters will have the chance to make toys for CHS pets and play animal-themed games.
A.S. Labieniec mascot critters, including a rabbit named Hershey, turtles and birds, will also join the fun. Plus, weekend getaways, a weeklong vacation, sports packages and more will be up for grabs in a silent auction, and guests can win a Caribbean trip in a raffle.
All funds raised at the event will benefit lifesaving care of pets at CHS. Pets like Amanda, a 9-year-old hound mix who had a mass removed from her elbow in CHS’ medical department. And like Eva, a 7-year-old cat who needed extensive dental surgery at CHS for bad teeth. CHS’ lifesaving work for pets in crisis is made possible only by the generous support of the community.
RSVP for Bark-B-Que or become a sponsor at CThumane.org today. For more information, call Priscilla Clark at 860-594-4502, ext. 6307.
