Texarkana Friends of the Shelter is teaming up with Pecan Point Brewery to raise money for the animal shelter. Mark you calendar now for Saturday, March 14 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Texarkana Friends of the Shelter is planning an outdoor event in the streets of downtown Texarkana. The alley beside Pecan Point Brewery will be blocked off and the side doors to the brewery will be open, making it easy to walk in and out. Tickets are $20 and that will get you grilled, loaded Irish potatoes and beer. There also will be family-friendly drinks for kids, and a small band will play inside the building.

If you would like to help work the event, please contact Debbie Brower at debbie@alt-mag.com or call 903-334-9605. Visit the shelter’s website for more information -- Animal Care and Adoption Center.
