KNOXVILLE (WATE) – University of Tennessee’s Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee (H.A.B.I.T.) program is hosting a fundraiser that will make guests hungry.
The “Barbeque, Bidding and Bluegrass” event will be March 29 at the Knoxville Museum of Art. Supporters will eat food from Dead End B.B.Q., listen to music from the Grassroots Gringos and bid in a silent auction.
H.A.B.I.T. is a program that allows volunteers, veterinarians and members of U.T. College of Veterinary Medicine to learn about the bond between humans and animals. The group advocates the benefits of the special relationship. H.A.B.I.T. sponsors animal-assisted therapy and sends volunteers to area hospitals.
Guests may purchase tickets for $45 by contacting the program at email@example.com or 865-974-5633. The proceeds will go to H.A.B.I.T.
