We have decided to postpone the Bark Ball to after the holidays! We hope you will join us and keep a look out for a new event date for early 2019!


2018 Bark Ball

The Bark Ball is a pet-friendly benefit for Wright-Way Rescue, a no-kill animal shelter, where we celebrate our animals in style. Don your formal attire and join us at Blue Sky Vineyard. Treat yourself to a festive, fun-filled evening and a chance to make a difference for the abandoned at Wright-Way Rescue.

Events like Bark Ball help homeless animals in southern Illinois. By your support and attendance, you are a part of the solution to help Wright-Way Rescue save lives.

This event will kick off with a catered dinner, auctions, and music. If you choose, you can do it all with your canine friend by your side! Cash bar will be available through Blue Sky.

Patrons, feel free to dress up your pet in their favorite formal attire!

If you’d rather go to the formal ticketing page, you can purchase your tickets here.
