BARL's Special Guest at the Celebrity Dinner & Auction...

Wyatt Waters

As you’ve always been told, water is vital for the 
well being of your pets.  Well, how about Waters,
Wyatt Waters, that is?
BARL has been fortunate to garner Mississippi
watercolor painter, Wyatt Waters, as a
guest for the 2014 Celebrity Dinner
and Auction.

The 11th annual event is set for Tuesday, October
21st at the ​Lincoln Civic Center.  Doors will open at 5:30 pm, with the event kicking off at 6:00 pm. Purchase your $25 tickets at Engravables on the Boulevard, or call Julie at 601-757-1057, or email info@barl.net.

Guests will enjoy a buffet-style dinner, while Celebrity Waiters (business people and community leaders), dressed in costume at their decorated tables, will entertain guests as they raise tips for the animals.     

A silent auction will take place throughout the evening, and a live auction with a professional auctioneer will round out the night’s activities.  The auctions will have something to meet anyone’s budget, with everything from home décor items, vacation stays, ATV ramps and gift certificates for massages and haircuts.

Bringing a community together is always a good thing.  The Brookhaven Animal Rescue League’s Celebrity Dinner makes it fun, too. In fact, enthusiastic fun and involvement is what BARL is striving for with our annual Celebrity Dinner and Auction.  Of course, we hope to raise money for the animals too!
