This is the third annual Bark for Life calendar project, and proceeds, as always, go to the American Cancer Society and their Relay for Life event this summer. The calendars of prize-winning canines will be ready the third week in June.
That’s not all. Friar Tuck’s Leprechauns for a Cure will be hosting a Bunco for a Cure Tournament and Mothers’ Day shopping party Saturday, April 28, in their bar/restaurant in downtown Cotati. The party starts at noon, and a $25 donation gets you a seat in the Bunco tournament, door prize ticket, light refreshments, prizes for most Bunco wins, most losses and a prize to the Bunco survivor with the most wins.
In between games, a long list of vendors will have suggestions for Mothers’ Day presents or upcoming birthdays and weddings. All proceeds will go to American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. For more details, call Bark for Life co-chair Pam Wittner at 888-7280 or email@example.com.
Then on Saturday, May 19, Friar Tuck’s Leprechauns for a Cure will stage a Battling Cancer with the Bands concert along with Maggie May’s Marauders in the Cotati club and restaurant from noon to 7 p.m. It’s a kickoff party for Bark for Life. Call 792-9847 for details.
The big event is the American Cancer Society’s Bark for Life, to be held in La Plaza Park in Cotati. The date is Saturday, July 21, with canine check-ins beginning at 8 a.m. More details on this annual dog and dog owner bash will be forthcoming.
The Mothers Day Shopping Party & Bunco For A Cure will be held at 423 Tracy Avenue in Santa Rosa. It is Co-hosted by Maggie May's Marauders, Racing For A Cure & Leprechauns For A Cure.
