Smashingly Events was so blessed to be a part of organizing the 2016 Cover Dog Event to raise money for Friends of the Animals, a local animal welfare organization located in Mooresville, North Carolina. Cover Dog is a dog pageant, complete with a runway, celebrity judges [think Barbara McKay from WBTV], a DJ playing “dog” music, a best eyes contest, owner look alike contest and a finalist that gets there picture on the cover of a local magazine. This event is a case of “Dogs Helping Dogs,” with all of the proceeds raised from entrance fees, donations, silent and live auctions and food vendor proceeds going to the charity. The event was founded by our friend, and animal lover and supporter, Deborah Bell of Deborah Bell & Company. 2016 was the 7th year that this event took place.
