Buried Bone Foundation presented two checks Wednesday at noon as they distributed the proceeds from Reds, Whites, and Brews, an event held on Main Street and Celebration Plaza earlier this month. The Sulphur Springs Animal Shelter and Hearts of Life Animal Rescue each received $3,500 as a result of event. Another $3,000 placed in escrow with the City of Sulphur Springs as seed money for next year’s event.
Art Foster, Jr. and Matt Dunn founded the Buried Bone Foundation when the city needed an organization to manage Red, Whites, and Brews. City Manager Marc Maxwell said the city does not wish to run an event but to provide a venue and have another staff, plan, and promote the event. He believes Buried Bones was a great fit for this year. Foster and Dunn stated that any money made in the event would be presented to the canine focused groups and for seed money for next year. Wednesday was the fulfillment of that commitment.
Art Foster explained that the two really wanted to give back to the community by helping out the local dog rescues. “I really like dogs, and Matt really likes dogs so this is our way of helping out local dogs.” He continued: “The ultimate goal for The Buried Bone is to build a dog park.”

The Rotary Club of Sulphur Springs had also sponsored a Canine Corner during the event. At Canine Corner, several dogs were adopted.
