Puppy Bowl 2019!
Sunday, February 3, 2019 at 1 PM – 4 PM
130 Kanuga Chapel Dr, Hendersonville, North Carolina 28739
Get ready for a seriously awesome Super Bowl Sunday as social media superstar Grey the vegan rapper (Official Grey Music) hosts Hendersonville’s Sanctuary Brewing Company’s 4th annual Puppy Bowl! The festivities, which benefit Brother Wolf Animal Rescue and Sweet Bear Rescue Farm will take place at Kanuga Conference & Retreat Center on Sunday, February 3rd.
For those new to the canine competition, adoptable puppies play an incredibly cute game of rough-and-tumble football while onlookers (and potential adopters) drink craft beer and cheer them on! This year’s halftime show will feature a musical performance by Grey as well as adoptable senior dogs.
Sanctuary Brewing Company will be serving brews, locally-based plant meat makers No Evil Foods & Garlik Vegan Kitchen will be serving eats, and there’ll be a Pop-Up Pup Photo Booth on site by Indulge Images.
While in past years it was hosted at Sanctuary Brewing Company’s location in downtown Hendersonville, the epic annual event of adorableness has become so big that the staff is moving the event to the gymnasium at nearby Kanuga Conference & Retreat Center to accommodate all the fans!
With more than 150k Instagram followers and hundreds of thousands of views of his original viral rap video, Vegan Thanksgiving, Grey is a legitimate phenomenon. He’s so influential that he’s introducing mega-celebs to veganism. Recently, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith shared Grey’s Thanksgiving rap video with her 4.9 million Instagram followers.
“We are beyond excited for the 2019 Puppy Bowl,” says Sanctuary Brewing Company Co-Owner Lisa McDonald. “Grey is an incredible host, the event is going to be the biggest it’s ever been – and we’re going to get so many puppies adopted! It’s literally our favorite day of the year.”
“We are thrilled to host Puppy Bowl 2019,” says Kanuga Conferences Inc. President, Michael Sullivan. “It’s a fun event that gives back to our community in such a wonderful way by benefitting two local organizations and we are excited to be a part of that.”
This year’s lineup includes Team Tuff and Team Gruff, and all players will be available for adoption from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. A $75 VIP option will get you field-side seats and a t-shirt! Tickets can be purchased at http://bit.ly/PuppyBowl2019.
Proceeds from this year’s Puppy Bowl will benefit Sweet Bear Rescue Farm and Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.
