Tickets are available online through Thursday, September 29, until midnight.
After midnight, tickets can only be purchased at the event.
DOG TICKETS OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT! HUMAN TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE!
We'll start the party off with a "signature drink" for your dog (it might taste a lot like bone broth), then entertain them with a selfie-station, paw print art, green grass carpet pup-arazzi, trick contest, take-home wag bags, and more to keep the doggy dignitaries happy. The FACE campus will be transformed into a doggy paradise.
Complimentary bow ties and tutus will be provided to each canine guest, however we encourage your dog to also wear their most fetching formal wear.
For human attendees "athleisure," or very casual attire is suggested. After all, you're just there to supervise.
Dog tickets are sold out. Humans must be 21 years of age, while VIPs (all dogs) must be at least five months of age.
A Signature Drink
Hand-crafted by FACE staff
Our mixologists have concocted a delicious drink every dog will be sure to lap right up, served in a high-class champagne glass. Don't worry, the glass is plastic and the drink tastes a lot like bone broth.
Green Carpet Furtography
With Furtography Pet Studio
Professional pet photographer Marissa will be leading the green carpet pup-arazzi as the VIPs arrive on leash. She will capture your dog's unique personality as they strut their formal wear. All images will be shared in a social media gallery.
Paw Print Art
A Paw Print Party Souvenir
Your dog can make a paw print art piece using pet-safe paints and bearing their name. It's a personal expression that will become an heirloom.
So You Think You Can Sit
The chance has come for your dog to grandstand their skills, be it novel tricks or unparalleled pizzazz. Participation is limited.
Butler Blue IV
The gala will be graced with the presence of local dog celebrity, Butler Blue IV - the official mascot of Butler University. Grab a photo with you and your dog!
Foraged, curated, artisanal, hand-selected, and yummy
City Dogs Grocery is providing tasty treats and sweets your lucky dog will love.
Bow Ties and Tutus
Just In Case
Every dog will receive a bow tie or tutu should they choose to accessorize their ensembles.
Look cool, feel cool, stay cool.
We'll have doggie pools for a little cool down should the gala action get too hot.
Win big in our doggy lottery
Let your dog pick their treat of choice from our selection. Each treat correlates to a prize bag with winnings that range from bags of puppy treats to big surprises for both humans and dogs!
Not only is space for dogs limited to 50 lucky pups, but we know that not all dogs are party animals. Even if your dog stays home, this will be a great human party benefiting your favorite high-volume, high-quality low-cost animal clinic.
What's more fun than watching dozens of dogs wearing tutus frolic around on a Friday night? Not much. It's going to be amazing. With that said, there will be plenty of human-centric activities, such as the following:
Live music by The Midtown Mad Men, food from BB&B Bread Truck, wine provided by Daniel's Vineyard, and beer by Sun King Brewery will be included in your ticket price.
5:30 - 6 p.m.
Check-in, Grass Carpet Walk and Pup-arazzi photos.
6 - 7 p.m.
Activities, music, food, drink, happy dogs playing and dancing
Dog Trick Contest + FACE program
Party continues with music & food until 8:30.
This is an outdoor event held on the grounds of FACE, with dozens of dogs in attendance. All dogs must remain on leash at all times. Retractable leashes are not allowed. We advise close-toed shoes and casual attire for people.
We expect and trust that all party goers are fully vaccinated. Rabies, DAPP, and/or coronavirus.
Thank you for supporting FACE with your ticket purchase. We look forward to celebrating our work with you in person beginning at 5:30p.m. on Friday, September 30th at A Gala for Dogs!
Remember, all dogs must have their own ticket ($25). They must be on a leash at all times. Retractable leashes are not suitable for this event.
As a reminder, we expect all party goers (human and canine) to be fully vaccinated. This event is outdoors for everyone's safety and comfort.
Bow tie, tuxedo, or tutu? We can't wait to see your dog's black tie attire.
