Barks, Babes, & Bros V
Win a Date with a Celebrity AND Save Animals at our Upcoming Delray Beach Auction
It’s 2020 - a new decade and a chance to start anew. You probably didn’t picture yourself starting the decade off with a celebrity date though. (Okay, maybe you pictured it. But it probably didn’t make it onto your list of resolutions. If so, kudos.)
SATURDAY FEB 8TH
Just one week before Valentine’s Day, you’ll have your chance to win over your next potential beau at the 5th Annual Barks, Babes & Bros Bachelor and Bachelorette Auction, with 100% of the ticket funds benefiting injured rescue dogs in South Florida. That’s right - you not only get a chance at a Valentine, but you also save a dog’s life in the process.
With benefits going to Salty Dog Paddle, our recognized nonprofit surf and stand-up paddleboard (SUP) organization, this fundraiser has previously been named "The Best Themed Charity Event." We have been raising money for over 42 years to save and protect countless injured dogs throughout the country and have received endorsements from American Dog Rescue, Animal Aid USA, the ASPCA, and HSUS. Visit our Beneficiary to learn more about our organization.
Because we are a 501(c)3 public charity, all donations made for the event are tax-deductible. We are currently accepting sponsorships for this event.
The Barks, Babes & Bros event will include live music performances, a DJ, raffles, contestant biddings, and more!

● Prince of Italy - Lorenzo Borghese
● Animal Rights Advocate - Georgina Bloomberg
● Recording Artist - Kendra Erika
● Country Music Artist - James McCoy Taylor (Contestant in ABC’s The Bachelorette)

This party isn’t just for singles though - if you’re taken but still want to enjoy a fun Saturday night surrounded by celebrities and dogs, we have a special raffle for you (silent auction items include pet carriers donated by Taylor Swift).
On Saturday, February 8th, meet us at Honey in Delray Beach from 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. (VIP admission starts at 7 p.m.) and come adorned in festive cupid-themed attire (keeping it upscale casual). Entry into the event is only $20 right now on pre-sale, $10 off from the $30 price and includes a complimentary Tito’s Vodka beverage. Limited VIP tickets are still available at $250 per ticket. Tickets can be purchased online.
And we’ll let you in on a little secret - we’re having an after-party at 10:30 p.m. for all attendees at no additional cover price!

If not opting for valet parking, you can park in one of the parking garages nearby the venue (street parking is available but fills up fast) but these spots will require a fee for parking.
