Good Reasons Joins the Big Dogs in the Park for the Strut Your Mutt Fundraiser
North Salem, NY (September 24, 2014) – Good Reasons™ has talked the talk, and now they’re ready to strut their stuff for another good cause! Join Good Reasons™ as they support Best Friends Animal Society in the Strut Your Mutt fundraiser this Saturday, September 27 at Hudson River Park’s Pier 84, located at W. 43rd Street and the West Side Highway (right next to the Intrepid), beginning at 2:00pm.
While this may be the first time Good Reasons™ is participating in this event, it won’t be its last. As newcomers in the dog scene, they are ready to get their paws wet and dabble in all things dogs. Good Reasons™ is a dog treat company on a mission. Their scrumptious, all natural dog treats are sure to please your dog’s palate, but at Good Reasons™ they go beyond the biscuit. They created a company that provides employment for people with autism and other disabilities in an integrated work environment. Unleashing love and potential in every bite.
The new Hudson Valley-based social enterprise first heard about the Strut Your Mutt fundraiser while looking for events to participate in that would help get their name out there after a recent July 2014 launch. As the Good Reasons™ team further investigated the event; they knew they had to be there as more than just an exhibitor. Best Friends Animal Society’s mission means a lot to Good Reasons™ founder and CEO, Vicki Sylvester. “I just love what their name stands for – my dogs really are like my children and best friends. I can’t imagine waking up and not having them there. To know there are organizations like Best Friends and other animal societies committed to finding families for homeless animals really means a lot. Today we strut for those who can’t,” says Sylvester.
Good Reasons™ has done significantly well for themselves, despite their three months in business. Online sales are steadily rising and their treats are now sold in 17 retail stores. “The amount of support we’ve received is astounding. We believe in our product, but it’s our mission we really want people to learn about. Our employees put their heart into their jobs. We mean it when we say that our treats are baked with love,” adds Sylvester.
Good Reasons™ will be in attendance this Saturday as an exhibitor. Look for their booth where they will have more information on how you can get involved in helping to provide job opportunities for those with disabilities. Good Reasons™ will also be selling all three flavors of their scrumptious dog treats (Hudson’s Pumpkin PB Pieces, Bella’s Barkery Bone, and Charlie’s Cheddar Chomps). There will be activities for both two- and four-legged participants including contests, photos and goodies.
