2nd Annual Arizona Halloween Music Festival Benefiting Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA

Saturday, October 30th Versus Sports Grill Scottsdale

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - September 20, 2010) - Phoenix VIP Events announces the 2nd Annual Arizona Halloween Music Festival benefiting the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA with an adoption day, sponsorship and foster care drive and raffle. This free family-friendly (yes, that includes Fido) event will be held Saturday, October 30th from 10am-4pm at Versus Sports Grill at the corner of 90th Street and Via Linda in Scottsdale. The festivities will continue with happy hour specials from 4-8pm and an animal-themed costume ball from 8pm-1am.

The mission of the non-profit Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA is to end the unnecessary euthanasia of dogs and cats in our community. Founded in 1971, AAWL/SPCA operates the state's oldest and largest no-kill shelter. AAWL/SPCA also provides adoption, resource and education programs that improve the quality of life for dogs and cats and offer support for pet guardians. AAWL/SPCA found homes for nearly 2,700 dogs and cats last year.

"We are grateful to be participating in this event to raise awareness for our efforts to save animals," said Tina Eacret, Director of Volunteer Programs and Special Events for AAWL/SPCA. "In addition to having animals available for adoption, we will be sharing how people can get involved in our sponsorship and foster care programs."

The festivities include:

  • Pet adoptions & fun animal demonstrations;
  • Raffle benefiting AAWL/SPCA -- tickets for sale or receive one ticket for every can of cat food (Friskies preferred) for a chance to win great prizes from sponsors like the Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns, Rockford Fosgate and more;
  • Full size outdoor stage with live performances by legendary musician Hans Olson and Manufactured Defects, Burning Phoenix, Grain of Truth and the International School of Arizona Children's Choir;
  • Costume contest;
  • Appearances by police and firefighters;
  • Festival booths;
  • Beer garden;
  • College football inside Versus Sports Grill with food and drink specials all day; and
  • Over-21 animal-themed costume ball from 8pm-1am.

"We are excited to be producing this festival to benefit AAWL/SPCA after adopting 3 animals from this great organization." said David Marshall Pryce, Managing Partner of Phoenix VIP Events. "We want to thank Versus Sports Grill and our sponsors for supporting this event."
