Feeling Cheerful?

Each year, Bark For Life does a fundraising basket of cheer. We are looking for donations to the cause! (We collect the bottles in the fall so we can take pictures of the baskets to take to our events where we sell the raffle tickets.) Raffle tickets are sold throughout the winter/spring and at our Bark event and then, the winner is pulled at the Pottstown Relay For Life event.  

Buy a little too much wine after the winery sampling sessions? … Need to clear out your liquor cabinet … If you have unopened bottles laying around that aren’t to your taste - or just need to be out of your house … bring them to Bark’s next meeting ( or contact: Sheila Batzel and/or Sue Dudek

The American Cancer Society Bark For LifeTM is a noncompetitive walk event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society's fight against cancer.

By supporting Bark For Life, you help the American Cancer Society save lives, and that helps us move closer to our ultimate goal of a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

So bring your best canine friend and join us for a fun-filled day starting with a walk, and then continuing with demonstrations, contests, and games.
