And most importantly...where does the money raised from this festival go? Glad you asked....
1. To pay for the actual festival (insurance, permits, rentals, advertising, etc)
2. To support a Pet Food Bank in Clarington and surrounding areas benefiting those who need temporary help in feeding their pets.
3. To supply poop bags in the Bowmanville Off Leash Park
4. To continue providing Rescue Groups with support and our FREE Tags for Rescues Program
5. If by chance we are in a surplus then we will have a head start for next year's festival to make it even bigger & better!
