Eddie Money at Run, Ride, and Rhythm

Sellstate Select presented Run, Ride, and Rhythm - a fundraiser for the Lake Norman Volunteer Fire Department Truck Fund. There was an early morning Run(plus a kid's fun run), an afternoon Ride - 3 hour charity motorcycle run to the mountains, and a ROCK CONCERT ALL DAY long! We showed up to Little Johnny Trailer Trash rocking the crowd. Then Eddie Money hit the stage and I think he had as much fun as the crowd! The first annual Run, Ride, Rhythm event was a huge success and a GREAT time for all. Special thanks to all the sponsors, donors, and volunteers this was a very well run event.

Lucky Dog 3rd Annual Halloween PAWTY!

Lucky Dog held their 3rd Annual Halloween Pawty from 6pm-10pm! 100% of the entry fee was donated to Project HALO! All the Dogs had a great time, and it's amazing how well all these "lucky dogs" play together. It was our little Boston's 3rd trip to Lucky Dog and she was a little nervous at the beginning but within 5 minutes she was running all over having a blast being a DOG off a leash. Most people are surprised how quickly their dogs learn how to behave in this dog friendly environment. Don't be nervous - introduce your dog on a weekday to Lucky Dog when it's not too crowded, and next thing you know you've got a great new location for your dog to be a DOG. Photos by Nate.

Maybe you remember Jon as the fifth season winner on NBC's "LastComic Standing" or have seen him on Comedy Central's "PremiumBlend" or the half-hour special "Comedy Central Presents: Jon Reep". If it’s not from his stand-up performances, then you probably recognize Jon from Dodge's popular ad campaign, "Hemi Guy", where Joni s known to millions as the redheaded hillbilly famous for leaning out of his rusty beater and uttering, "That thing gotta Hemi?" You also know Jon as the redneck farmer from “Harold and Kumar: Escape Guantanamo Bay” and television host of “Are you Faster than a Redneck” on the Speed Channel. Yes - we've been to a lot of comedy shows and Jon (being from Hickory, NC) knows Southern Culture and he was HILARIOUS.
