UFC Gym and Empire Today Carpet & Flooring present “Everyone Has A Fight, What’s Yours?” Fundraiser benefitting Agape Animal Rescue and Villalobos Rescue Center on March 31st from 12-5 p.m. at UFC Hendersonville (261 Indian Lake Blvd). The event is free to the public and open to all ages.
“It is humbling when local businesses come on board to support the Agape Animal Rescue mission,” said Tanya Willis, Executive Director and Founder of Agape Animal Rescue. “We couldn’t save lives in our community without the support of our foster parents, volunteers, and donations from events such as this one!”
The fundraiser will offer live music performed by country duo, Terra Bella, food and craft vendors, raffles and prizes, pet adoptions, and more.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of an event that stands for the importance of animal rescue, especially since we have two of our own who tour with us,” said Martina Costa of Terra Bella and member of UFC Gym. “It’s also a great opportunity for us to share new music with those who come and personally give thanks for the support.”
Middle Tennessee non-profit Agape Animal Rescue and New Orleans’ Villalobos Rescue Center, best known as the rescue behind Animal Planet’s Pit Bulls & Parolees, will have organization members present offering information, training tips, and canine cuddles to attendees. (Note: Animals will not be given to potential owners at the time of event due per protocal, which usually requires an at-home visit prior to adoption. Should a “live adoption” occur, contacting the rescue before hand is crucial.) To view adoptable dogs please visit agaperescue.org/adopt/dogs-for-adoption or vrcpitbull.com/adoption-process.

About Terra Bella:
Ranchers. Musicians. Married. Joseph (“Joe”) and Martina Costa are a dynamic husband-and-wife duo from California’s San Joaquin Valley known as Terra Bella. Both Joseph and Martina’s roots are deeply planted in Central California, where they immersed themselves in agriculture. For years Terra Bella toured up and down the West Coast playing clubs and rodeos as well as opening for national acts such as Lee Brice, Gary Allan, Montgomery Gentry, Thomas Rhett and more. In August of 2013, the pair decided to move 2,200 miles across the nation to “Music City, USA” or Nashville. The pair immediately committed to their purpose and was soon a regular member of the songwriting community. Terra Bella was introduced to esteemed producer/guitarist, Johnny Garcia, who began to coach and produce Terra Bella’s material in between tour legs with Garth Brooks. In 2016, the debut EP Road To Forever came to fruition and scored the duo’s first Billboard Indicator (#51) and Music Row (#42) charting song with the single “You’ve Got That Somethin’.” Since the release of Road To Forever, Terra Bella has been endlessly writing new material for a much-anticipated album. They’ve reinvented their brand and sound to more accurately represent who Terra Bella is; communicative story-telling with a Bakersfield edge, beautiful harmonies, and a test to time.
