The 5th Annual Lucky’s Great Wiener Race will be held on July 26th, 6 pm, at the 4421 Main St Manayunk location. This yearly fund raiser for PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society) means that $1 from every hotdog on their special PAWS hot dog menu for the entire month of July and 100% of the sales from Neshaminy Creek Brewing beers on race day go to PAWS.
We encourage everyone to stop by and enjoy a delicious Hotdog and cold beer to help support a good cause.
