We recently learned of a great event called Spittoono that happens here each year and I’m not quite sure how we missed this before!
This year, Spittoono XXXII will be held from August 23-25 at the National Guard Armory near Clemson University. It runs from 6 pm to 2 am Thursday and Friday, and 4 pm to 2 am Saturday.
Local charitable groups set up booths, and this year, Crossroads is joining in on the fun. Rusty is strongly considering making an appearance, too! They currently have a massive number of adoptable cats, dogs and horses, and some of the adoptable animals will be hanging out at Spittoono.
Oconee Humane Society will also be there. OHS is currently competing in the Rachael Ray $100K Challenge along with some Mason-Dixon participants like BARCS and Humane League of Lancaster. In the 100K Challenge, shelters compete for award money through increased adoptions and community involvement.
From what I understand of the rules, some of Crossroads’ animals should qualify as adoptions for OHS in the 100K challenge. Edwin would be one of those, since he is an OHS dog that Crossroads treated for heartworms.
You just can’t beat free music, cheap beer and puppies – especially not when it all benefits kids and animals!
Plus, who doesn’t yearn for something to help get rid of that little break in weekend traffic and 9 am chants of “chug, chug, chug!” that happens between move in day and the start of
football tailgating season? Ahh, life in a college town.
