The fun filled event was sponsored by Purina, Think Simple, Graham Real Estate, Happy Pets Animal Hospital, Odyssey Aviation and JS Johnson and all the proceeds will benefit Baark’s spay/neuter and education programs throughout the Bahamas.

Quickly becoming known as the most fun-fundraiser on the social calendar, attendees had the chance to play more than 10 gala games in a bid to win amazing prizes.

The slowest bike race was one of evening’s highlights, top prizes included stays at Kamalame Cay, Treasure Cay, Hope Town Harbour Lodge, Bluff House Beach Resort and The One & Only Ocean Club. Guests also enjoyed carnival food favorites including chicken wings, hot dogs, a chocolate fountain and cotton candy!

Brand Manager, Richard Curry said “We love to partner with Baark! as their events are always fun and well attended, plus we know the money raised is going towards their very important work. Purina cares deeply about animal welfare in the Bahamas and having seen a reduction in the stray dog population over the past few years, we know their programs are successful and we are proud to work alongside them”.
