THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO JOINED US AT THE 31ST ANNUAL BARK BALL! 

The 31st Annual black-tie gala was held on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at the Washington Hilton. This event is the only black-tie gala where movers and shakers of Washington DC can bring their canine companions as their dates. The Bark Ball draws many of the area's most illustrious residents and their four-legged friends, all in honor of the programs and services of the Humane Rescue Alliance. The guest list always includes leading figures from the political, media, entertainment, sports, and business worlds. 

There was a reception, extensive silent and live auctions, seated vegan dinner, and program.

If you were unable to attend the 31st Annual Bark Ball please consider making a donation in support of the Humane Rescue Alliance.
