I like you have so enjoyed watching all of the ALS Ice Bucket challenge videos. They have filled my Facebook feed and have brought many smiles to my face. I love supporting a cause and think ALS is one of the most worthy charities to give to this year. However there is another charity I love being associated with and that’s the Marietta Mutt Strutt.
This year’s Marietta Mutt Strutt is taking place on Saturday, September 6 from 10 AM to 3 PM at the First United Methodist Church in Marietta. I am proud to say Fleurenasci will be taking part in this great event. This event is being held to support and raise awareness of Sweetwater Mission, a nonprofit that has been helping families with food, clothing, job training and more since 1968. Sweetwater provides, on average, two tons of food a day for those in need – every day, 365 days a year! Also look for beautifully handcrafted items for sale at the Mutt Strutt, made by the participants in Sweetwater’s newest artisan program for the formerly chronically homeless. The group’s mission since 1968 has been to prevent hunger and homelessness. They help stabilize families by providing basic needs and transform lives through education and employment opportunities. Visit SweetwaterMission.org to find out how you can help.
At Mutt Strutt you can enjoy Bluegrass music with the Cherokee Cut Ups on the main stage, delectable treats from the Cobb EMC Food Truck Spot, Dachshund Races, the Kid Zone with lots of fun activities for all ages, and the Pet Parade and costume contest. Parking and admission are free.
There will be more than 60 vendors on hand, including Fleurenasci. There will definitely be something for everyone! And be sure to take your precious pup to the Bone Bar, where nearly 4000 pounds of dog treats are available for you to scoop – and they’re free!
