Goat yoga is always fun, but in October it also will have a purpose.

The Friends of BCAS are teaming up with Old Oak Acres to offer two goat yoga fundraising classes on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Each class features an hour of yoga with a certified instructor with 20 years of experience, followed by 15 minutes of play time with the goats. Yoga mats and healthy snacks will be provided.

Do you like golf, cocktails, and food?

Then you must join us for the first annual Dadz and Friends of BCAS golf outing on Oct. 7 at the Rancocas Golf Club and Dadz Bar & Grill. The event is rain or shine and includes a Tito's 50/50 ball drop (the ball that lands closest to the pin wins), cocktail hour, and dinner. If you don't like to golf or can't make the golfing portion of the event, you can buy just a dinner ticket, which includes the cocktail hour.

Join us to run and walk for homeless animals in Burlington County on Sept. 28 at 8 a.m. The off-road 5K course winds through beautiful Smithville Park in Eastampton.
