Patio Party is a dog-friendly fundraiser for Young-Williams Animal Center

Central Flats & Taps will host a dog-friendly Father’s Day Patio Party on Sunday, June 16, from noon-5 p.m. in support of Young-Williams Animal Center.

“We’re bringing you a party that has completely gone to the dogs – literally,” said Bryan Howington of Central Flats & Taps. “There will be fun activities throughout the day along with amazing food and drink specials, and families are encouraged to attend and bring their dogs along for the fun.”

The event will raise money to set up an adoption scholarship fund for dogs at Young-Williams Animal Center. Featured specials include $3 Dos Perros brews from Yazoo Brewing Company and a Bloody Mary bar. Central Flats & Taps is located at1204 N. Central St. in Knoxville.

“This is the ultimate Sunday Funday for dads to share with their families and furry friends – while helping a great cause,” said Howington. “We look forward to seeing dads, dogs and everyone out for lunch, a drink, or a whole afternoon of fun!”
