SPCA Fundraiser at Seaboard Station

As some of you may know, Nick and I adopted our first puppy from the SPCA Pet Adoption Center just outside of Garner. Delta has been a wonderful addition to the whole Jeffries (and Jackson!) families ever since.

I encourage you all to enjoy this event and stop by the Curtis Dail Pet Adoption Center and visit with the pups, kittens, bunnies, and more! Take one home with you if you have the room and extra love to give!

Down by the Tracks VI
121 Seaboard Avenue, Raleigh

For years, Down By The Tracks brought you downtown for great live music and cold beer for the great cause of supporting the SPCA. The event has grown with Seaboard Station's business district. Come see the renaissance of Seaboard for yourself and bring your dogs, friends, and family.

Bring your leashed pets to the sixth annual DOWN BY THE TRACKS, a block party benefiting the SPCA and presented by the Shops at Seaboard Station and friends. This year's event will feature live music from two great Triangle area bands, DBTT's crowd favorite The Soul Searchers and newcomers Buffalo Theory.

You will also find a silent auction, the "Best Dog Costume Contest", food vendors and FREE BEER. Come explore the new businesses of the Seaboard district like Capital City Grocery, Seaboard Fitness, Ace Hardware and favorites like Seaboard Imports, Galatea, and redpin.

To make an bigger financial impact for the SPCA, the Shops at Seaboard Station and friends will be charging a $5 cover charge for everyone attending with kids 12 and under free.
