On October 13, 2012, Olde Town Brokers located in Andrews, NC sponsored the first annual Valley River Run Classic Car Show. Partnering with Valley River Humane Society, part of the entry fee was a bag of cat food or dog food to support feeding shelter animals as well as in support of the pet food bank.

The community came out in support of the event. We collected a total of 332 pounds of food (250 lbs dog food & 82 lbs cat food) as well as $75.00 in donations to VRHS! Great event, thanks for all the local support!
