SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The shelves at the Sioux Falls Humane Society will be stocked for months thanks to all the donations from the first annual Barks and Brews.
The event last weekend raised more than $10,000 in donations and food. Barks and Brews was created by the staff at Denny Sanford PREMIER Center and is part of the Sioux Falls Alive initiative.
“Barks and Brews #1 was an amazing success!” said The Animals and Staff at the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society in a news release. “We would like to thank the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center for their hard work and dedication to the animals in our community, the volunteers and staff who helped with the event, and we look forward to a continued partnership.”
“We were thrilled to provide a warm space for pets and their owners to come out and socialize in a responsible manner. In addition, the amount of donations was more than we anticipated. It feels good to be part of a community that gets out and shares, especially during these challenging times,” Mike Krewson, General Manager of Denny Sanford PREMIER CENTER, said in a release.
