The P.E.I. Bark for Life volunteer organizing committee is inviting all dog owners and enthusiasts to get in the Valentine's Day spirit through Bark for Love, an online silent auction underway until Feb. 12.
In support of the P.E.I. division of the Canadian Cancer Society, this silent auction contains over $4,600 worth of items with something for that special someone (or that special furry four-legged friend). Visit www.32auctions.com/barkforlove to view all the items and to place bids.
Auction items range in value from $100 to $700 and have all been donated thanks to the support of local individuals and business.
The auction features two nights' accommodation at Rodd Crowbush, an ultimate date night package with an evening at the Inns of Great George and dinner at a Murphy's restaurant, a beautiful hand-hooked rug, a right-handed set of men's Calloway golf clubs with golf bag, Island photographs and tickets to a number of shows on P.E.I. such as "Mamma Mia", "Anne & Gilbert - The Musical", the Festival of Small Halls, the Mont-Carmel Summer Concert Series and the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, just to name a few.
And to make sure that four-legged friends aren't left out of the fun, auction items also include dog grooming packages, obedience training, doggy daycare, gift cards to local pet stores and much more.
Bark for Life is an annual event in support of the fight against cancer and recognizes the important role canine friends play as caregivers to those suffering. The event will take place this year on May 28 at Victoria Park and gives pet owners and their dogs the opportunity to make a difference together while enjoying a day of fun, friendship and fundraising.
Those wishing to participate can register by visiting www.cancer.ca/barkforlifepei. Also, like the Facebook page, www.facebook.com/barkforlifepei, to be kept up to date with all the developments taking place around the event.
