Nashville Humane Association Announces Cassadee Pope as Host for 2019 Unleashed Event


NASHVILLE, Tenn., – Nashville Humane Association (NHA) is pleased to announce GRAMMY-nominated recording artist Cassadee Pope as the host for the 9th Annual Unleashed: Dinner with your Dog presented by PEDIGREE®. Unleashed will be held on Saturday, February 2, at the Loews Vanderbilt hotel in midtown Nashvillle beginning at 6:30 p.m.


“This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever,” said Laura Chavarria, Executive Director NHA. “We’re so lucky to have PEDIGREE® back as our presenting sponsor, and an amazing talent like Cassadee Pope as our host. Not only is she a world-renowned performing artist, she’s an all-star friend to shelter pets and Nashville Humane Association.”


The 2019 Unleashed event, co-chaired by Marcia Masulla and Staci Trimm, features cocktails, dinner, and dessert, along with doggie runway show and live/silent auctions, all hosted by Cassadee Pope in the main ballroom at the Loews Vanderbilt hotel in midtown Nashville.


“Already in it’s ninth year, Unleashed is one of NHA’s largest fundraising events,” said Marcia Masulla, Unleashed creator and 2019 co-chair. “From Critter Camp for kiddos, to low-cost spay and neuter clinics, to adopting nearly 4,000 animals annually, NHA is entirely gift-based and events like Unleashed works to support all of the good work they do.”


The Unleashed runway will feature lovable dogs of all shapes and sizes that are currently available for adoption at NHA, guided by Nashville celebrities, friends, and supporters of the local Nashville shelter.  In addition to the dinner and dog walk, Unleashed will feature a silent and live auction including some of the finest gifts and services all donated by local to benefit the mission of NHA. As always, guests are encouraged to bring their dogs for what is guaranteed to be a fun memorable evening for both two legged and four legged guests!


Tickets for the 9th annual Unleased presented by PEDIGREE® event are still available, for you and your dog, at NHA’s website nashvillehumane.org.
