Hail! Fredonia Records hosts second dog walk

Hail! Fredonia Records, as part of the Student Record Label class in the Music Industry Program at Fredonia, has announced its second dog walk, ”Lend a Paw for Autism: Star Paws,” to take place on Sunday, April 22, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., on campus.

Proceeds of the “Star Wars”-themed dog walk will benefit the Institute of Autism Research at Canisius College. Fredonia students, staff, and community members are invited to register for the walk, either individually or as a team. Dogs are highly encouraged, but not required in order to participate. All registrations come with a free commemorative T-shirt that will be provided at the event. Upon conclusion of the walk, a reception will take place in the outdoor amphitheater, and will include music performances as well as the sale of food and refreshments.

“The Student Record Label class is unique in that it offers students the chance to apply their learning to real events at a professional level”, stated Professor Armand Petri. “Last year, the Music Industry students organized our first dog walk. To our surprise, we brought in over 350 people, and have received requests to do it annually. This year, we are proud to present our second dog walk, Star Paws. We are encouraging everyone to participate in this year’s theme by dressing their dogs up in ‘Star Wars’ attire.”

Students of both the Music Marketing and Promotions and Student Record Label class organize numerous charitable events every year involving the Fredonia community. At last year’s dog walk, the class raised over $4,000 for the Institute of Autism Research.
