Ferrante's Bay View Room

Monterey Marriott | 350 Calle Principal | Monterey, CA

We invite you to join us for an intimate evening to celebrate BirchBark Foundation’s success in saving the lives of beloved animals whose lives would have been lost if not for our volunteers, our veterinary partners and our supporter’s dedication to helping financially struggling families save their pets from an unexpected life-threatening/life-altering medical crisis.

Guests will enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival, an opportunity to bid on unique auction items, while mingling with corporate and community leaders, and passionate animal lovers. An uplifting dinner program will feature a gourmet dinner with award winning wines, followed by an exciting program recognizing the exciting work of BirchBark Foundation. Renowned auctioneer, Lisa Taylor will call a live auction featuring fabulous “experience” packages guaranteed to delight. The evening will end with a paddle raise to help save a pet’s life. All monies raised from this event will go to ensuring support is always available for those pets, and families, who need it the most.

Seating is limited to 150 and we do expect to sell out early, so please reserve your space now.

Help us save more pets like Zoe, Tyler, Vin and Lightning!

A special tribute…

Our Fall in Love fundraiser for BirchBark Foundation is proud to honor pet heroes. For our first year, we would like to celebrate Carie Broecker and Monica Rua. Carie and Monica are the founders of Peace of Mind Dog Rescue (POMDR) and dedicated animal welfare advocates. POMDR has changed the lives of thousands of dogs (and people) on the Central coast and this year is celebrating its 10th anniversary. BirchBark recognizes the need for such passion and dedication to make our community a better place for all and we are thrilled to include Carie and Monica as our first Fall in Love BirchBark honorees.
