The community is invited to enjoy the third annual Dogs and Suds fundraiser for Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation to be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, May 15, at Frog Level Brewing Company, 56 Commerce St., in the Frog Level section of Waynesville. Music will be provided by the Sweet Claudette band from Asheville.

Proceeds from this event will help fund Sarge’s efforts to save as many dogs and cats as possible from the county shelter and place them in foster homes until they can be adopted. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Ticket purchase is an automatic entry in drawing for $100 gift certificate to the Chef’s Table.

A 16 oz. beer, crafted by FLBC brewmaster/owner Clark Williams, a “dog” with a side and a dessert will be served. This year the “dogs” will be a selection of locally produced, handcrafted sausages, hot links, bratwursts and more, provided by Haywood Smokehouse.

“When we realized our shelter dog, Annie, needed a companion, we turned to Sarge’s and were blessed with Tula, a Mountain Cur,” said Williams. “So Frog Level Brewing Company felt honored when Sarge’s volunteers asked us to provide the venue and some craft made local beers to help raise money for Sarge’s mission to save animals in the Haywood County shelter from euthanasia.”

Advance tickets can be bought at Sarge’s Adoption Center, 256 Industrial Park Dr., Waynesville; Mountain Dreams Realty, 3457 Soco Road in Maggie Valley; and Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery in Downtown Waynesville.

The band Sweet Claudette is made up of members of regional favorites The Honeycutters, Now You See Them and The Moon and You. Sweet Claudette's sound is powered by 3- and 4-part harmonies, Motown-inspired backup vocals, and acoustic instruments — cello, banjo, melodica, guitar and hand percussion. Their show is collaborative, energetic and entertaining.

Sponsors for Dogs & Suds are Frog Level Brewing Company, Haywood Smokehouse and Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery.
