One of my personal favorite fundraising events of the year is coming back!  SPARKY, Saving Paws Animal Rescue of Kentucky, is once again hosting its Bark in Style event, which was canceled last year due to COVID-19.

However, it's coming back and this year's event will be Saturday, May 15th at Green River Distillery Co. in downtown Owensboro.  I will be emceeing the event and I am personally extending an invitation to you to join us.  Bark in Style is an absolute, adorable blast.

This year's event will feature the latest styles and fashions from a variety of local retail boutiques: Byron and Barclay, The Earle, Adorn Boutique, Rayelle Collection, Embellish Boutique, and Come Hither Intimate Apparel.

In addition to showcasing the latest fashion trends, our runway models will also be walking (or, in some cases, carrying) SPARKY pets that are up for adoption and looking for forever homes.

This year's event is sponsored by Homes by Benny Clark and will feature an incredible dinner created by Matt Weafer, owner and chef at Niko's Bakery here in town and a huge silent auction.  Plus, there's a new addition to Bark in Style 2021. There will be a coffee bar by Canteen Service Company.

Tickets for the event are on sale now for $50 per person and include: admission to the Bark in Style fashion show, dinner and one drink. You can purchase your tickets by CLICKING HERE! If you'd like to donate to the silent auction, you can simply contact

SPARKY's Bark in Style sold out in its three previous years and organizers hope that trend will continue this year.
