Pitch and Pooch on April 28 and Perros de Mayo

Please make plans to attend the South Austin Pitch and Pooch on Saturday, April 28 from Noon to 8pm at Butler Park. It’s going to be a blast! Sign your dog up for the Jimmy Buffett-themed costume contest or tee off on the beautiful 9-hole downtown golf course with your family and friends. Enjoy live music by the spectacular Hot Club of Cowtown with Elana James in the afternoon. Then bid for some great items in the silent auction and dine on the best burgers and fries in town catered by P. Terry’s!

You can make a difference if you just show up!

Here’s an opportunity! Help the Dream Come True Foundation take resilient young people with all the odds against them to a life of dreams and possibilities.

The Canine Extravaganza costume contest starts at 4pm and the fee is $25 per dog. Participants will receive a gift bag courtesy of Tomlinson’s. Come dressed in your best tropical attire and have some fun with your canine pals!
If you can grasp a club, you can be in our “World’s Smallest Golf Tournament” at this beautiful 9-hole downtown golf course. It’s fun and fellowship with people you know. Register now to get your family, friends, and your pups involved in this exciting event!
