Burritos to Benefit Shaw Dog Park


Make dinner a selfless act!

Come in to the Chipotle at 1508 14th Street, NW on Sunday, July 16th between 5:00pm and 9:00pm. Show this flyer on your smartphone (you can click the image to enlarge) or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Shaw Dog Park.

As the Park operates in its 9th year of existence, all funds raised by this event will enable the volunteer-based Board to continue to provide basic Park maintenance and upkeep as well as pursue Park improvements.

Help spread the word via our Facebook page — https://www.facebook.com/ShawDogPark/ — and share our post!
