If you are looking for something to do this weekend in the metro Missouri/Illinois area, check out this Chicken and Beer Dance. The dance will be held at the K of C Hall, 405 E 4th St. Alton, Il. All proceeds from the event will benefit Hope Animal Rescues, Godfrey, IL.

Hope Rescues is a non-profit, state licensed organization that was started by two friends back in 2005, after they rescued 17 dogs from Hurricane Katrina. Since then this no-kill shelter and rescue has grown by leaps and bounds, all thanks to fund raisers, donations and great volunteers.

Hope Rescues strives to find homes for lost and unwanted animals by hosting adoptions at the PetCo in Edwardsville, IL. and by sending their dogs home on trial visits, hoping to find the perfect match for both the dog and the family.

This Chicken and Beer dance is made possible through the generous donation of other businesses and organizations. The chicken dinners are being provided by Fast Eddies Bon-Air in Alton and the music has been donated by the band “Straight Jacket.” The band plays a mixture of classic and contemporary rock along with other dance styles.

This fun filled evening will also offer a silent auction and games. While the event is open to the public, you must purchase tickets. Tickets can be purchased at the door or you can purchase them online at the Hope Rescues website.

The Chicken and Beer Dance starts at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 10: p.m. On line tickets are $15.00 each or you can reserve a table for ten for $150.00. You will be sure to have good times and you will be helping out some dogs that need hope. Sounds like a win, win, doesn’t it?
