    “Scars, Cars & Guitars” Fundraiser to Benefit Detroit Bully Corps


    (Detroit, Michigan) – Detroit Bully Corps is excited to host the 2nd Annual Scars, Cars & Guitars fundraiser this Saturday, June 29 from noon until midnight at The Old Miami located at 3930 Cass Avenue in Detroit.


    Detroit Bully Corps currently has 33 dogs in their care and some of them have been victims of abuse and neglect. These canines represent the “scars” portion of the event. Thanks to DBC’s rehabilitation program, many of these dogs are now available for adoption. DBC will not have canines at the event, but information will be available for those looking to adopt a new canine companion.


    The “cars” portion of the event starts at noon with a display featuring all makes and models of vintage and unique cars and motorcycles. At 5:00 p.m., the “guitars” take the stage with a dynamic lineup of local bands, including Poison Tongues, Ante Up, Stale Phish, Karalavara, Exploder, Devil Elvis and All The Wild Children.


    The event will also feature special appearances throughout the day by the Detroit Derby Girls and 93.9 The River DJ Greg Gnyp from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Local vendors, including Defend Detroit, Mamyth, Detroit Glitz, Detroit Stitching Co. and Drakes Dezines, will sell their wares at the event with 10% of all proceeds going to DBC. Volunteers will be grilling hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers for sale and there will be a cash bar.


    Bill Bellottie, Detroit Bully Corps Co-Founder and Director of Operations, says: “We are pleased to see so many of our supporters stepping up to sponsor and help at the event. The goal of this event is to promote solidarity and raise awareness about the American Pit Bull Terrier and all Bully Breeds. ‘Community Unity’ is what this event is all about.”


    The event is open to ages 21 and up with a $20 cover charge payable at the door. Most of the activities will take place outside to take advantage of The Old Miami’s famous backyard. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy the festivities. The event will take place rain or shine.
