With football season finally here, I’m thrilled to invite you to a great benefit featuring adorable puppies, complimentary lunch, and a down-to-earth football star in attendance with hopes of drafting families looking to adopt a new dog from San Diego Humane Society! If you recall the Barking Beast Runway Show, you know when I host, I like to make things extra special. So it gives me great joy to share with you San Diego Chargers’ Colton Underwood will be our featured star at the Sunday August 30th adoption drive sponsored by Barking Beast!
You won’t find community involvment anything short on Colton Underwood’s list of favorite past times. The Charger’s line backer is the epitome of a giving, compassionate, and hardworking athlete. It amazes me the excrutiating amount of hours and hard work Underwood puts into training for football every week and still manages making time to give back to his community when away from the gridion.
This summer alone, the Illinois State football star raised over $50,000 when he hosted The Colton Underwood Football Camp under his foundation the Underwood Foundation back in his home of Indianapolis, Indiana. Hundred’s of kids came out for a special day with Colton and his teammates to learn the ropes of football all while having some fun with professional football stars. The event proceeds went to benefit Cystic Fibrosis a life threatening genetic disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system. Underwood has been at the forefront of Cystic Fibrosis awareness for many years now and is one of the diseases well-known celebrities in helping find a cure.
Beyond his dedication to Cystic Fibrosis awareness and football camps for the youth, the Colton Underwood has shown great enthusiasm in being a proud #DogFather throughout his social media, so it was only fitting Barking Beast partner up with the Chargers’ star who loves dogs more than anything!
