2018 Barkin’ Ball

“On behalf of Fuzzy Friends Rescue, we would like to sincerely thank everyone for your support of the 2018 Barkin’ Ball, Cirque Celebration.

Our event was a huge success, and we owe that in part to you for your support! The convention center was decorated with beautiful satin ribbons intricately woven from ceiling to table and created a WOW factor and a festive mood. The Project Band was outstanding and the dance floor has never been more popular. This year’s Audible Auction was record-breaking. The 52 Weeks of Dining, Hope Necklace drawing, Posted Bid Board and Silent Auction were also very popular and combined will add a significant source of revenue for our shelter.

The proceeds raised from this year’s event will not only play a vital role in enabling Fuzzy Friends Rescue to continue the life-saving efforts for our community’s homeless and abandoned dogs and cats, but it will also help to support and enhance our community outreach and education initiatives.

The success of our fundraising efforts for this most important event of the year is dependent solely on our community champions. Year after year, we have been able to save so many precious lives because of supporters like you.”
