BPF has been carefully monitoring our ability to host our two Blocktail parties amid Covid concerns and restrictions in Michigan. The good news is that we are currently moving ahead with the plans for the Blocktail Sponsor Party featuring Jefferson Starship on Monday, June 7, for sponsors of $1,500 and above!
The bad news is that we have to cancel BISSELL Blocktail Party on Tuesday, June 8. We are beyond heartbroken. Blocktail is BPF’s biggest fundraiser, and we were excited to be moving ahead with plans to host it safely. The bottom line is that with the current conditions in Michigan, we are unable to get the volunteers we need to run the party in a way that would accommodate our guests and meet state guidelines. We are so incredibly sad not to gather with our supporters and their pets that night—a highlight of the year for all of us—as well as to go two years in a row without hosting BPF’s largest fundraiser to benefit homeless pets.
The committee has been gathering incredible items for the Blocktail silent auction, and we have a great online format for viewing and bidding. We will keep you updated on how to access the auction when it launches. You won’t want to miss these items that are only available through Blocktail!
