September 15th, we are unveiling our new 2020 Bombshells & Pitbulls fundraising calendar! A lot of hard work went into the creation of this calendar and we are so excited to share it with the community.
Bombshells & Pitbulls is a local charity that supports Iowa Pitbull Rescues, provides free dog food to struggling families, and continues to fight against breed specific legislation in Des Moines. We are 100% volunteer driven and work with Des Moines’ top creative business leaders to produce high quality calendars. When you purchase a calendar, know that all the proceeds go to support the dogs!
This year we are excited to partner with local vendors in order to provide a truly unique experience for our guests!
• Five Monkeys Inc. will be coordinating a collaborative art project that provides our supporters an opportunity to creatively express their love of the Pitbull breed. Leading up to the event, you are able to visit their studio (located at 4211 Chamberlain Ave, Des Moines, IA 50312) and paint a ceramic paw print. We will also make painting paw prints available at our event. This collaborative art project will be auctioned off at the event, however the finished product will not be assembled until the last piece is able to be fired in kiln and assembled. If you have questions on how to paint your paw, please call co-founder Bombshell Shannon at 515-212-0099.
• Sisters in Cheese will be providing their famous mini grazers, pressed picnic sandwiches and graze-kabobs. Here’s a tip you won’t want to miss, the graze-kabobs go perfectly with the bloody marys served up at Lefty’s bar! Sisters in Cheese is a new business out of Madrid, Iowa. Be sure to visit them the next time you go out to Trestle Trail Bridge for a bike ride!
• Betty’s Barkery makes grain-free, meat-free, dairy-free wholesome dog treats owned by none other than Bombshells & Pitbulls founder, Amy Senn! Amy is a strong advocate for sustainable living, so you will also find colorful dog leashes made from recycled plastic bags and lots more.
Dress in your best vintage attire because we will be having a fun photo booth for guests to use. You can try out your best poses and get photos with your favorite pin-up model. Along with our exciting new activities, co-founder Bombshell Shannon will be selling her t-shirts, wall art, plus other goods.
