SHOP LOCAL. SUPPORT LOCAL.
More than 20 downtown Franklin businesses will support local charities on Tuesday, August 27 through their sales, as part of a “Dog Days of Summer” event designed to engage the community with local non-profits! Locations include both merchants and restaurants.
Participating DFA businesses will donate 10-15 percent of sales between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. to a non-profit of their choice–and many will leave their doors open later for the event. These merchants and restaurant owners have chosen organizations that are near and dear to both their own hearts and their customers.
If you participate, please use #DogDaysofSummer or #FranklinLove so that we can follow your adventures!
