How has it already been a year since our last Bark Ball? In 2020, with the state of the world, we hosted a completely virtual experience - Bark Ball Reimagined. This year, we are ready to dip our paws back into in-person event experiences. This years’ Bark Ball will be a new experience – some virtual engagement and some in-person. So, you could say it will provide something for everyone! We want to meet you at your comfort and safety level, all while providing you an opportunity to showcase your support for HRA and for us to provide you a fun experience.
Viewing Party guests at the Washington Hilton will be required to wear masks (DC indoor policy).
Viewing Party guests at the Washington Hilton will also be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccinations upon arrival.
