8/4 Bring your dog to see Wells
Celebrate the Dog Days of August with Cubs pitcher Randy Wells on Thursday at the Captain Morgan Club at Wrigley Field. Wells and the Lake Shore Animal Shelter are teaming up for a special “Pooches on the Patio” party Thursday from 5-7 p.m. CT. Bring your canine companion or pick a pup on the spot from the Adoption Trolley. We’re sure there will be plenty of treats.
* Lake Shore Animal Shelter is the oldest no-kill animal shelter in Chicago. It will have dogs, big and small, available for adoption. Captain Morgan also will present a $2,500 check to the shelter in honor of Wells.
* Guests are invited to bring their dogs for photo opportunities with the Cubs pitcher and the official Captain Morgan.
* One lucky guest will be selected for a spot in the limelight as they escort Captain Morgan onto Wrigley Field when he throws the ceremonial first pitch prior to the Cubs home game Friday. That fan also will receive two tickets for that day’s Cubs game. Game tickets are for two-legged guests only.
* If you make a $10 donation to the Lake Shore Animal Shelter, you will a gift for your dog. You also can enter your dog’s name into a drawing for a chance to win the Pooches Prize Pack full of toys and treats as well as getting their dog’s name in lights on the Wrigley Field Marquee.
