What do you get when you combine a friendly game of competition with cats and dogs? That’s right, the first ever Shelter Showdown hosted by the Kent County Animal Care Shelter! No, we’re not talking about a battle royale between actual animals but more so between businesses!

If you’re a BIG fan of game shows and competitions, this event is for you!

For this year’s event, a *paw-fectly* feud-styled game show between local businesses will be hosted by Kent County Animal Shelter. Participating businesses are Fleetwood Insurance Group vs. Chesapeake Bank & Trust and Chesapeake Real Estate vs. Cross Street Realtors.

Not only are they competing for the 2019 reigning Shelter Showdown Champion title, but they also win an overnight stay at The Animal Shelter as their prize. Paired with a delectable spread from Fish Whistle and the eight-member band NightLife providing great music and entertainment for everyone, this is an event you don’t want to miss!

No party is complete without a full and well-stocked “beverage center.” This year’s Premier Event Sponsor, Yerkes Construction and a Glow Bar provided by Molly’s Place and Premium Outfitters will provide the beverage center. It will include signature cocktails crafted exclusively by Neyah White of LTO Chestertown.

Ticket prices are $125 and $150 per person, with a special late night ticket for $60.

The event starts at 6:00 pm at the Kent County Community Center on Saturday, April 13, 2019.
