[September 17, 2014]  LINCOLN - On September 20, 2014, Anytime Fitness Lincoln will host the third annual fundraiser, “Woofstock,” a hound and human festival for the Humane Society of Logan County, from 10-3 at Latham Park.

The fundraiser will feature a raffle, live music, prizes, informational booths, vendors, contests, and activities for kids and dogs alike. Rib-eye sandwiches from Lincoln IGA will be available as well as pulled chicken sandwiches from Nuthatch Hill BBQ. There will be a “smooch- a-pooch” puppy kissing booth and many other fun avenues to raise money for the Humane Society of Logan County. All proceeds will be donated to the Humane Society of Logan County. “Woofstock” is co-sponsored by Jake’s Home Furnishings, Sal Pollice of Edward Jones Investments, Steve Harvey of Country Insurance and Financial Services, Holland Barry and Bennett FH, Bennett Builders and Lincoln Chrysler Dodge Jeep.

Contests are: biggest dog, smallest dog, cutest dog, ugliest dog, and best trick. Animal contests begin at noon and will conclude around 1:30. All individuals wishing to enter their animal in a contest are urged to be at the gazebo at Latham Park at 11:45 a.m. Prizes for each contest are immediately following each event. There will also be events for kids including a hula-hoop contest and a push-up contest. Those events run from 10-2 p.m. Prizes for these events will be at 2:15 p.m.

“Woofstock” is a fun-filled, family friendly event for both the pet and pet lover to spend a day together and raise money for the local Humane Society. Pet lovers can come with their leashed pet to peruse area businesses and vendors.

The mission statement of the Logan County Humane Society is to prevent the cruelty, abuse, and neglect of animals, promote the proper placement of animals through adoption, work toward the solution of pet overpopulation, educate the public about the humane treatment of animals, and aid in the return of lost animals to their owners.

Anytime Fitness Lincoln, which is a state of the art 24/7 facility, is hosting the event. Owner Josh Slightom expressed his excitement regarding hosting the event for the third year in a row: “We are so amazed at the reception from the community towards Woofstock. This year, so many people contacted us asking how they could be involved. This really proves that philanthropy is alive in Lincoln and the Logan County community. We are honored to be able to help the Humane Society of Logan County and feel that it is not only our part to keep the humans healthy in Logan County, but also to work towards the betterment of its animals. Thank you to all supporters and sponsors. Without them, none of this would be possible.”

Bring your family and your furry friend to Latham Park on Saturday September 20th from 10-3 and join us for smiles, wagging tails, and the good feeling of supporting a great local organization- the Humane Society of Logan County.
