WHAT: 18th Annual Bark & Whine Ball
WHEN: Thursday, March 13, 2014, 6:30pm - 10pm
WHERE: Fort Mason Center, Festival Pavilion
The 2013 Ball live auction generated some lively bidding. The 2014 Ball should even be livelier with even more live and silent auction packages to satisfy everyone. Of special interest is a Marc Chagall signed 1956 lithograph courtesy of Weinstein Gallery. CLAW is extremely grateful to Rowland Weinstein and the Weinstein Gallery for this generous gift. Again, there will be a 2015 Westminster Dog Show package and the cover of the next Bark & Whine Ball Invitation.
Last year's Bark & Whine Ball...
It was an enchanted evening on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at the Fort Mason Center, Festival Pavilion as patrons and their four-legged friends sashayed down the red carpet in their finest attire. Pooches devoured tasty dog treats from the Bark Bar, compliments of our evening’s Presenting Sponsor Purina ONE, while humans enjoyed an eclectic collection of food from McCall’s Catering. Carlos Reyes and his marvelous band provided the musical backdrop to the evening as guests danced away with their furry friends.
The evening’s emcee, Diane Dwyer of NBC Bay Area, lit up the evening with her energy and hilarious stories. Our live auction had some thrilling moments with our guests competing over our big ticket items. A special thanks to our Presenting Media Sponsor NBC Bay Area.
We‘d like to recognize and thank our very special friends at Critter Lovers at Work (CLAW) for orchestrating the evening’s festivities and their unwavering support of the San Francisco SPCA, year after year. Without the continued support of CLAW, the Cinderella Fund would not be able to thrive and we are forever appreciative.
It was a marvelous and fun evening with a wonderful group of people who filled the pavilion with their warmth, love and support. The SF SPCA is truly grateful to be affiliated with such remarkable individuals, who truly believe in our mission and goals.
