The Doggy Event of the Season is Back!
Third Annual Santa BowWow 2019 to be held on Sunday, December 22 at The Weekend Cubbon Park
---Annual CJ Memorial Trust (CJMT) Award 2019 to be presented on the Occasion---
Bengaluru, Tuesday, 17 December 2019:
After two succesful #SantaBowWow events in the last two years, the third annual # Santa BowWow , a beloved annual milestone for dog lovers, kids and parents, is back this year again and will be held on Sunday, December 22, 2019 at the Weekend Dog Park, Cubbon Park. The event organised by #CJMT (CJ Memorial Trust) & Cubbon Park Canines’ brings together dogs, pet parents and kids in a festive, jolly setting to celebrate the Christmas spirit. Originally started as an event to help kids to deal with dogs more safely, help kids approach and care for animals and promote compassion and care, it has today become a much larger event with more causes under its banner. BBMP and IChangeMyCity have come forward again to support CJMT SantaBowWow 2019.
The third annual SantaBowWow event will also witness the presentation of the Annual CJ
Memorial Trust (#CJMT) Award 2019 by the Police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao to the
awardees. There will also be the launch of the National Indie Dog Day by a mystery celebrity.
The two previous annual events had the #KidsAndDogs theme and family and safety. In its third
year, it has a wide array of activities focused on the Christmas spirit and the timeless magic of
children & dogs. There will be carol singing with lots of prizes to be given away to kids and
doggies, especially for IndieDogs and rescues. The Kids and Dogs session will be conducted by
Manjari and Adoo. Parikrama Foundation school kids will attend with their school dog as well!
Another highlight this year is the support by Prasad Bidapa Institute for the Cubbon Parkies.
There will be a #RescueOnRamp fashion show where the parents with their rescues will walk the
ramp and show off their wonderful, heart-warming happily ever afters. What better time of the
year than Christmas to do this?
Sharing his thoughts, Prasad Bidapa says: ‘I’m so happy to be supporting The CJ Memorial Trust
and the Cubbon Park Canines who has been doing sterling work on animal advocacy, creating
communities and Dog Rescues. It’s going to be both uplifting and fun to have (and share stories
of) the Doggy #RescuesOnRamp with their incredible parents, now family. My models and I are
looking forward to the whole Christmas spirit, with kids and dogs, as well as the CJMT award and
the #IndiedogDay launch. I hope many people come by to enjoy this wonderful opportunity and
the magic of canines, children and Christmas! ‘
