Bailing Out Benji formally invites you to attend our Second Annual “Bark After Dark Gala” on Saturday, September 14th at the Forte in Downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Our social hour begins at 5:00pm with dinner being served at 7:00pm.

This semi-formal event will benefit our nationwide advocacy efforts, as well as going towards the vet care of the over 1000 puppy mill dogs we have saved in the last 5 years. Tickets will be $50 each ($75 per couple) and will include admission, dinner, dessert and an open bar. There will be a silent auction and raffle with many donated items, as well as guests from all over the country.

Since our founding in 2011, Bailing Out Benji has educated millions of people about the cruel puppy mill industry through our advocacy efforts- but we couldn’t have done this alone. You have been crucial in helping us grow and reach an audience that we have never been able to before. Because of that, we are asking animal lovers, rescues and businesses to help sponsor our evening. Every level of sponsorship will receive special benefits, including recognition leading up to and during our Gala. If you are unable to be a sponsor, please consider giving an in-kind donation for our auction and raffle. All donations, including sponsorships, are tax deductible. We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support in helping us give a voice to the animals. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at Bailing Out Benji’s Second Annual “Bark After Dark” Gala.
