CEDAR PARK, Texas, Feb. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Cedar Park is sponsoring the first Super Saturday Doggie Bowl 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
The event will benefit the Humane Society of Williamson County.
"We wanted to sponsor and host an event that was important to our community," Franchise owner Allen Torng said. "This is a great opportunity to give back and raise awareness for a great cause."
10% of Dickey's sales from the entire day will be donated to the society.
"This is a cause that is close to people in our community," he said. "We hope to raise as much money and awareness as we can while offering a great pet friendly and family-oriented environment for our entire community."
The event was created to increase the Humane Society efforts and to turn Williamson County into a "no kill" county.
According to organizers, puppies from the Humane Society will be playing in a pooch style football game and all puppies will be available for adoption.
There will be over 30 vendors offering all types of entertainment and items for sale as well.
Some additional events during the Doggie Bowl will be a performance from the Leander High School Blue Belles, a classic car show, Guitar Hero competition, photo booth, a live DJ, karaoke, and much more.
Dickey's Barbecue asks all Dickey's Owner/Operators to be good stewards in the communities in which they do business.
"The Dallas area has been good to us, so we have always wanted to give back. As we expand we are moving into new communities across the country every month," Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. CEO Roland Dickey said. "We want our Owner/Operators to take the value of community stewardship along with the barbecue to their neighbors and friends."
The first Dickey's Barbecue opened in 1941 in Dallas, TX.
The original location is still open for business and Dickey's Barbecue is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family.
Dickey's only began franchising in 1994, now there are 140 locations in 33 states.
Even today, Dickey's still slow smokes all of their signature meats overnight in every restaurant.
