September Event - Smith's with The Monster Milers

This month we're looking at everyone with our puppy dog eyes. How can you say no to that?! Join us in September as we support the little monsters in your life and the city's shelters. Monster Milers pairs shelter dogs and runners together to provide exercise, interaction, and a hopeful forever home to our furry friends. Smith's bar is generously providing the usual  (1) free drink and some free appetizers to everyone who comes out to the event. Admission is $10 (or "bones" if you're using dog-speak). 

The Monster Milers will be using funds from this event to procure their city permit for their upcoming 5K run for dog shelters (slated for 2013)!  

Bring yourself, bring a friend but please don't bring any real monsters (they're scary!) We can't wait to see you there (if we had tails. they'd be wagging).

We had a "Grand" time!

Wahoo! and Thank you to all who made it out to Socially Conscious Philadelphia's happy hour last week.  If you haven't seen on Facebook, then you might be excited to know we raised a cool grand ($1000) for The Sturge-Weber Foundation on Wednesday.  And all you had to do was show up and have a good time!  Thanks also to American Pub not only for the food and drink but one final donation to get to that lovely fourth digit. 

For those keeping track, that means SCP has now officially surpassed the $10K mark in funds raised since we started about 18 months back!  We are, as the celebrities like to say these days, over the moon!  As always, we look forward to more fun social outings with our growing crowd of supporters.

Speaking of when we'll see you again, be sure to mark your calenders for Tuesday, September 4th (one day after Labor Day).  We'll share more details as the dates draws near.
