Local Businesses Sponsor a Dog Wash & Pet Parade


October 1, 2011-  While lots of groups have car washes to earn money for their team or organization, Bowen’s Tae Kwon Do Academy had a different idea- A Dog Wash and Pet Parade! Yes, you read that correctly!  Who doesn’t want a clean smelling dog, right?  That is what the instructor team at Bowen’s Tae Kwon Do thought, so with a few weeks to plan, lots of excitement and enthusiasm, they were off and running! 

Shopping center neighbor and good friend of Bowen’s TKD Academy, Maximum Nutrition, wanted to join the fun.  Maximum Nutrition co-owner, Rhianna Bailey has an open dog policy at her nutritional supplement shop nicknamed The Max.  Priced up to 30% off retail, The Max offers a wide variety of sports supplements, whole food vitamins, herbals, and much more for the whole family including your favorite pet!  Lastly, Lucky Dog Coupon wanted to join the fun as a sponsor as well

The Instructor Team asked for donations of supplies and time and were thrilled with the turnout for both.  Proceeds from the event were earmarked to fund the Tae Kwon Do instructor team trip to the 2012 World Training Event.  These events are invaluable and due to cost, many instructors are unable to attend.  Those attending the World events come back with an even greater spirit, love for their community, and a desire to help others achieve their personal best.

Maximum Nutrition provided dog treats, gift basket prizes, free smoothie samples, and more.  Kids also enjoyed face painting, hair coloring, and games!  The Parade started at 11am and the dogs began to strut their stuff in their best costumes!  Prizes were given for Best Dressed Dog, Most Spirited Dog, and Smartest Do.  The cost was $5 for a dog wash and $3 entry fee for the pet parade.   In total, almost $300 was earned for the Instructor Team! 

Master Lili Bowen said, “I am so proud of our Instructor Team and appreciative of the community’s support.  It was a lot of fun for everyone!”  The Max’s co-owner, Rhianna added, “What a great day!  I look forward to the 2nd annual Dog Wash and Parade!  I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful, caring, and supportive community of people and animals!”
