Wags to Witches Fur Bash Ball and Comedy on the Cumberland Show to benefit the Humane Society

 

Upcoming benefits to help in the Mission of the Humane Society; Comedy on the Cumberland on October 12th; Wags to Witches Fur Ball Bash on October 23rd.

On October 23rd, Deep beneath the main floors of the Riverview Inn in downtown Clarksville lies a world that only a chosen few ever see. It’s a world of coffins, tombstones, and cobwebs where monstrous things happen. If you listen closely, you can hear the merciless screams of…FUN!

Once again, the Clarksville Humane Society will be taking the regal ballrooms of the Riverview Inn and turning them into the stuff that fills nightmares for the 4th Annual Wags to Witches Fur Ball Bash.

This year’s façade of fantasy and horror, around 200 attendees will attend the Monster Mansion themed event. As these brave souls draw near the party entrance, they will walk through a most unusual graveyard of staked heads, gnawed bones, and severed limbs. Once inside the lobby area, attendees will see the house that blood, sweat, and fears built: the outside of the Monster Mansion itself.

Suddenly, there’s a flash of light!

But don’t be afraid. It’s only photographer Tina Hartman capturing you and your ghoul friend in all of your Halloween finery.

Then it’s time to visit the reaper, or the ticket taker, before you pass beneath the stone porch and into the darkness within.

Once inside, you’ll realize the full horror of what is in store for you. You’ll pass ghosts, goblins, and quite possibly some guacamole…as you pick the meat from tables of gore-may finger foods, potion-like drinks, and devilish deserts.

Spirits will also be available—but don’t dare forget to tip the ferryman or it could be your last.

The guest list includes ghouls so famous that they are known by their first names alone: Freddy, Jason, Michael, Frankie, Drac, and Wolfy.

All of this mixed with the bone rattling tunes of DJ Scott Chase make for a howling good time.

If dancing isn’t your thing, you can haunt the silent auction tables in the lobby. You might pick up a great item for a steal!

Yes, this is where the black magic happens, and we want YOU to be a part of it.

Not only was the Humane Society of Clarksville-Montgomery County’s Wags to Witches Fur Ball Bash voted “best charitable event” of the year, but it is also an event that historically makes a killing to help the four-legged members of our community.

The price for a ticket into the depths of horror: $50.

The benefit that our four legged friends gain from the money raised at this event: priceless.

So put on your hippest Halloween threads, paint up your face, and join us at the Wags to Witches Fur Ball Bash benefiting the Humane Society of Clarksville-Montgomery County.

We promise it to be a howling good time.

Tickets can be purchased online at ClarksvilleHumaneSociety.org or any Cumberland Bank & Trust location. Call (931) 648-8042 for more information.

Fast becoming one of Clarksville’s most popular fundraisers, Comedy on the Cumberland is set to return to the Roxy Theatre on Tuesday October 12th at 7:00pm. The headliner will be Nashville comedian Keith Alberstadt. Proceeds from this Comedy on the Cumberland show will benefit the Clarksville-Montgomery County Humane society, because a community without a humane society, is no laughing matter.

Alberstadt has appeared on David Letterman and is a former Nashville comic who has taken his career to New York. “We were fortunate to get Alberstadt who is in high demand, and was coming through Nashville on his way to South Carolina to do a show”, said Bonecutter. Former Comedy on the Cumberland headliner Rik Roberts said “You don’t want to miss Keith — I promise!”

In addition to Alberstadt, the October show will feature two of the funniest Nashville comedians; former police detective turned comedian Dan Whitehurst, Xavier “X-man” King, and Greg Lee also known as “Brother Preacher”. “Whitehurst and King are personal friends of mine. They have always been very supportive of local comics like myself, and are both extremely funny”. Since the last article on the show, it has been announced that

Comedy on the Cumberland was the brainchild of Clarksville talk show host and comedian Hank Bonecutter, who saw a demand for stand up comedy in the Clarksville/Ft Campbell community. “With the help of sponsors like F&M bank, Wendys, and Wyatt Johnson, we knew we could affect change in our community”, said Bonecutter. ” All of the proceeds generated through the show’s ticket sales go directly to the charity, so people can make a tax deductible donation and enjoy a great show”.

Tickets are $40 each or $75 a pair. Get your tickets at the Roxy Theatre box office downtown, or at the F&M bank on Public Square; they go on sale Monday, September 13th. Be sure to get your tickets early as Comedy on the Cumberland shows frequently sell out!

Comedy on the Cumberland is a combined effort of many sponsors like the Wendy’s, F&M Bank, Wyatt-Johnson Auto Group, Roxy Regional Theatre, CDE Lightband, Clarksville Online, Discover Clarksville, Clarksville’s Best Buys, Ad One Advertising, and WJZM 1400 AM Clarksville’s flagship radio station.

The tickets are selling fast, so don’t miss out!
