June 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. - In Paw-son Voting at Lena's Wood-Fired Grill and Tap
Our In Paw-son Challenge opportunity at Lena's Wood-Fired Grill and Tap will help your pet to win more votes while enjoying some delicious dining. All calendar contestants are invited to decorate a "voting box" that will be displayed during the event, and Lena's patrons will get a free ticket with their meal to vote for their favorites. Plus, tickets will be on sale on-site 2-for-$1, and you can purchase them at the event to help your pet fill his or her box.
Leashed dogs and cats in carriers are welcome to attend and dine on the Lena's patio (space permitting) to meet attendees and shake paws, but they are NOT required to attend. And best of all, Lena's is donating 20% of the evening's proceeds to the AWLA, so even if you don't have a calendar favorite, you can still wine, dine and support Alexandria's Animals; just make sure you provide your server with the coupon that says you're dining for Alexandria's Animals. Whether you're winning votes or just enjoying a nice night out, we look forward to seeing you at Lena's!
