Event sponsors, Animal Connection and Lynne Goldman Studio, will provide prizes for each class of competition. Registration for this family friendly event begins at 4:00 p.m. with the show starting at 5:00 p.m. Of course, spectators are welcome. Admission and entry is free but donations to the SPCA are encouraged. This event will also feature a raffle to benefit the SPCA, adoptable SPCA dogs and a food vendor.
“For twenty-five years, Co-Chairs Ginny Semmes and Peggy Augustus have continued to host this wonderful family event to benefit the SPCA.” says Lisa Lane, Marketing & Communication Specialist of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. “The SPCA is so grateful for supporters like Peggy and Ginny, not only because the Eastminster Dog Show has evolved into a Charlottesville tradition, but simply put, it is a fun time for everyone!”
