The Sula Society’s Bow Wow Gala, a Night of Elegance for Paws

By Laura McGregor

October 05, 2023

The magnificence of love and compassion towards Puerto Vallarta’s rescued canine companions will reach its zenith at The Sula Society inaugural Bow Wow Gala. A soiree where glamour, elegance, and heartfelt generosity intertwine, set amidst the heavenly backdrop of the iconic Hacienda San Angel. With tickets selling out quickly for the November 25th event.

The Sula Society, a Haven for the Homeless and Abused

The Sula Society has been a beacon of hope and sanctuary for over 300 dogs in and around Puerto Vallarta. This organization’s unwavering commitment resonates through its sprawling sanctuary, providing a haven filled with love, care, and second chances for these innocent souls. Yet, their shelter faces immense financial challenges, and your presence and support of this event can make a monumental difference.

A Gala Where Glamour Meets Compassion

The Bow Wow Gala is not just an event but an experience – an amalgamation of luxury and kindness. Each ticket sold, every bid placed during the live auction hosted by the renowned auctioneer John Curley, echoes the generosity of souls committed to making a tangible difference in the lives of dogs that have known nothing but abandonment and neglect.

Dining Amidst the Stars

As you savor a meticulously crafted menu, with options ranging from the delicate flavors of Chile Poblano and Black Bean Soup to the rich, hearty Beef Short Ribs, each bite is a testament to a future where no dog is left uncared for.

An Invitation to Be a Part of The Sula Society Movement

With only a limited number of tickets available, each priced at $150 or tables of 8 for $1,200, the opportunity to be part of this grandeur of compassion is fleeting. The attendees are encouraged to bring a bottle of wine to be auctioned during the event, amplifying the spirit of giving.

The gala is brought to life with the gracious support of Fortaleza Tequila, Luxury Dog Boarding, Hacienda San Angel, Puerto Vallarta Aesthetics, Paul Trimmer Real Estate Agency and Hotel Mercurio, who share our vision of a world where every dog is cherished and cared for.

A Night to Remember

The Bow Wow Gala promises an evening of unbridled luxury and an opportunity to embark upon a journey where every step resonates with the echoes of love, compassion, and second chances. Every ticket, every donation, every gesture of support is a pledge to transform the lives of the homeless and abused dogs of Puerto Vallarta.

We invite the Puerto Vallarta community to be the change, hope, and love that lights up these innocent, amazing dogs that receive such incredible care while they wait for their forever homes. Your seat at the table isn’t just a reservation—it’s a pledge to a world woven with threads of compassion, where every wagging tail narrates a story of a second chance graciously given and lovingly received.
