Fourth Annual Howl-oween Extravaganza to be held this weekend at Stegall Auction Company

Grab your four legged friend and head to Cottageville on Saturday, October 13th for the Cottageville Howl-oween Extravaganza. The fun filled family event is sure to have something that will leave everyone in your family something to bark about. The event will begin at 12:00 pm, rain or shine, and will last until 3:30 pm at Stegall Auction House located at 158 Farmer Street.
This is the fourth year the Going to the Dogs Band has hosted an annual fundraiser in Cottageville. The event has grown every year and all proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Colleton County Animal Shelter. For the admission price of $8 per person or $25 per family, which includes 2 adults and up to 4 children, event goers will be able to taste and vote on the homemade chili and desert contest. Also included in the admission fee is a grilled hotdog lunch, a vote in the car show, entry to all costume contest, entry into the decorated pumpkin contest, and participation in the live auction all while listening to the sounds of the Going to the Dogs Band. There will also be a dog demonstration during the event that you will not want to miss. Costumes are strongly suggested and trophies will be given for those who have the best!
Members of the band have also donated a 55” smart television set for raffle. Tickets are $20 each and there are only 50 tickets available for purchase. The auction always brings excitement to the crowd as there are usually some very unique items up for grabs. Some items on this year’s list include a canoe, a kayak, Rewind candles, a dog stroller, a dog life jacket, a basket of goodies from Nash FM, a basket of goodies from the Salkehatchie Men’s and Women’s basketball teams and many other items of interest. The auction is slated to start around 2:00 pm and will be followed by the awards for all the voting contest throughout the event.
Scott Brennan, lead singer with the Going to the Dogs Band, is looking forward to another successful year. Brennan prides the band with raising money for non-profit organizations such as Friends of the Colleton County Animal Shelter. The nonprofit group has found itself being able to provide more for the animals of Colleton County in part because of fundraising volunteers like “Going to the Dogs Band”.
