Bark in the Park 2012
When: Saturday, September 29, 2012 from noon to 5PM (walk begins at noon)
Where: Church Square Park, Hoboken, NJ
Liberty Humane Society’s 9th annual Bark in the Park is almost here! They are bringing the party back to Hoboken’s Church Square Park this year for what will hopefully be the most successful Bark in the Park yet!
This year, they are setting up a goal of raising $40,000 through the walk portion of the event. Participants can sign up via their website and choose to participate as an individual walker or form a team. After the walk, participants are invited to the Pet Expo to enjoy the LHS dog agility demonstration, fashion show, contests, raffles and shopping at 50+ pet vendors.
The initial registration fee for the Bark in the Park is $25 per walker and $35 for a human plus one dog. Why stop there? In order to help them reach their goal, they ask that each individual participant set a personal fundraising goal of at least $200. If 200 participants each raise this much, then they will already reach their goal of $40,000!
Also remember that we will have fabulous prizes available for the top individual fundraisers and fundraising teams! Online registration will close on September 28th. Be sure to sign up today and start fundraising!
To up the ante LHS has two celebrity guests attending this year’s Bark in the Park…
Celebrity Guests Attending Liberty Humane Society’s Bark in the Park
Liberty Humane Society (LHS) is thrilled to announce that James Roday and Maggie Lawson, stars of the popular show “Psych” on the USA Network, will be attending Bark in the Park 2012 on September 29th in Church Square Park, in Hoboken, NJ. James and Maggie will be leading the walk fundraiser which begins at noon and then hanging out with attendees throughout the day. They will also be the hosts of the LHS Doggie Couture Fashion Show which will feature the shelter dogs walking down the runway in clothes donated by local pet stores.
“Maggie and I are thrilled to be hosting Liberty Humane’s Bark in the Park. We initially mistook the event for a tree hugging ceremony involving a communal picnic. Since we’ll probably never make it to Burning Man, it seemed like a fun little excursion to jump into,” said James Roday. “Then we were told it’s actually going to help promote animal welfare. As rescue “parents” ourselves, this was even more ideal. But seriously, LHS is like the little engine that could, so please come out and support a great cause and be a part of an event that will have a positive impact in your community. And adopt a dog — or a cat or both.”
Sign up for the Bark in the Park walk today and attend the pet expo afterwards for your chance to meet the stars of “Psych” and to be a part of this blowout fundraiser for Liberty Humane Society. Register via the Bark in the Park website at http://libertyhumane.donorpages.com/Event/
