CHEER’s annual Paws for the Cause Pet Parade will return on Saturday, October 22, 2022 at the CHEER Community Center on Sand Hill Road, east of Georgetown. The event will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. It is a fundraiser for CHEER’s Paw Prints: Making a Difference program that brings about awareness of the importance of pet health and nutrition. The goal of the parade is to raise funds to meet the needs of hunger for our four-legged friends. Proceeds are used to help support CHEER’s homebound seniors in feeding their pets. This year’s event is in partnership with Lay’s Labs.
Highlight of the day is the costumed parade of pets. Costume winners will be named for Funniest, Most Creative, Best Owner/Pet Combo, and Crowd Favorite. Judging will be done by popular vote. The public will use tickets to vote for their favorite entries. Entry fee for the pet parade is $20 and participants will have an opportunity to earn gift cards and pet supplies. Each participant will also receive a caricature drawing with their pet as a keepsake of the event.
The day will also include vendors, face painting, food and games. The public is invited to join the fun at no cost. Interested vendors can contact Tanisha Showell, CHEER Volunteer Service Director at 302-515-3056 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those wishing to enter their pets in the parade, can also contact Tanisha for an entry form. Pre-registration is requested. Last day to register is October 15. The number of pets registered will be capped at 40, so register today. Email email@example.com to register your pet.
