Save-A-Pet, a true no-kill animal rescue and adoption center, is hosting a concert fundraiser featuring the Backdated Band with Jay Goeppner. This family-friendly event will take place from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, at Penny Road Pub, 545 Penny Road, Barrington.

The group is well-known for their music featuring The Beatles, as well as other bands from the '60s and '70s.

 

The event will also feature a raffle, and concertgoers can choose to sit indoors in front of the stage or outdoors to sing, dance, and eat. Guests will have the chance to take a selfie on the Abby Road backdrop.

There will also be a cash bar with Save-A-Pet drink specials for $5, such as a Pink Poodle, the Salty Chihuahua, Moscow "Mew" and a Spiked Kitty Cocktail. Domestic draft beer is available for $2, and there will be a full-service bar with many options, priced accordingly.

"It is so great to finally be able to host an in-person event. We look forward to seeing friends, old and new, at this concert, and hope to earn some much-needed funds for the animals rescued by Save-A-Pet," Development Manager Deb Rabine said.
