Saddling up for ‘Happy Tails to You’ on
August 21 when
We are only a couple of weeks away from our bi-annual fundraiser at NOLA City Bark.
Scheduled for Friday, August 21 from 7-11 pm, this year ‘101 Donations’ is going Western.
So grab your western garb and join us for a round-up of good food, great auction items and toe-tapping music at City Park’s Arbor Room right across the street from the dog park.
This lively evening will feature theme-appropriate food from City Park Catering; ‘The Blue Mongrel’ – a blueberry based mojito poured by The Velvet Cactus; and lip-smacking desserts, including ice creams from New Orleans Ice Cream Company, specialty cookies by Alyssa Gelé and Chantilly cakes from Whole Foods. Come dressed for the West or dressy casual. Two-legged patrons only are invited, sorry.
Co-chaired by Jackie Shreves and Sue Guarisco the event’s goal is to raise $50,000 for creation of a bone-shaped sand pit in the center of the large dog area; an automatic gate closure for the small dog area; annual hill repair and re-sodding, and additional security improvements.
Auction items include an outdoor dining set from Pool and Patio, a dinner by Galatoire’s chef Michael Sichel at his home, Bevelo lanterns, jewelry, hotel stays at The Blake and La Provincial as well as other vacation packages, and a variety of gift baskets and certificates for restaurants, fashion, fitness and beauty services for humans and canines alike.
Tickets to ‘101 Donations’ range from $101 per person ($75 if purchased by August 14) to various sponsorship levels ($500-$5000).
For more information, and to purchase tickets, click Purchase Tickets here or call or visit the dog park office, 504-483-9377, #1 Palm Drive in City Park, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.– 5 p.m.
So gather up your friends and family and we’ll see you on the 21st, Pardners!
Sponsor tickets will be mailed if payment is received by August 14. Otherwise they can be picked up at the Administration Building dog park office or at 'Will Call' on event night. Individual tickets will be held at ‘Will Call’ at the event, August 21. Your reservations will be acknowledged.
Donors at the $500 level will get a personalized ‘dog bone’ on the park fence. Donors of $1000 level and above will get whimsical ‘ Dalmatian’ cutouts decorating the dog park fence, starting now and for three additional months after. Each dog will wear a collar that features the name of your business, pet or any other individual you choose.
Items are also needed for our silent auction. All donors will receive recognition in the '101 Donations' program', a listing on our web site, and mention in our email newsletter, Bark Bits, that goes to over 3,400 contacts.
Please make an auction an auction item donation. Simply complete the auction donation form link below and return it with your donation to the address indicated, or feel free to call and we'll arrange a pick-up.
Happy Tails to You!
