Also on October 25, they have the Howl-A-Ween Ghostly Gala. We took a moment to chat with Fresno Bully Director Bridgette Boothe about this fun event!
KRL: What is the Ghostly Gala?
Bridgette: Fresno Bully Rescue and Nonini Winery team up for a fun, spooky time for a good cause! This is our second year hosting this event with Nonini Winery which is a great venue (that is also said to be haunted!). This is a 21+ Halloween party that boasts music, food, wine tasting, no-host bar, readings by Clairvoyant Jackie Harris, opportunity to meet with the CenCal Paranormal Investigators, vendor booths, costume contest, meet adoptable dogs, and tour the haunted, fully decorated winery! This is a fundraiser for our organization and 50% of the proceeds go straight to Fresno Bully Rescue.
KRL: What kind of food will be at the event?
Bridgette: Food by Two Sisters Bistro.
KRL: How did the idea for it come about?
Bridgette: We are always looking for new and creative ways to fundraise. We love teaming up with local businesses that support our organization. With the success of last year, we knew we wanted to do it again and hopefully make it a yearly thing!
KRL: Who all is involved?
Bridgette: Both the family owners of A. Nonini Winery and Fresno Bully Rescue. Everyone from the public 21 is invited.
KRL: What is involved in preparing for it?
Bridgette: We spend prior months organizing the entertainment for the night, inviting vendors and promoting the event as much as possible.
