SEPTEMBER 25, 2018 (ATLANTA, GA) – The 6th annual Candlelight Vigil and After Party will take place on November 3, 2018, at the Strand Theatre in Marietta. The event is hosted by Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, Inc. Atlanta rescue & welfare partner organizations, advocates, and pet families will come together to do more to help animals. Join animal welfare leaders and celebrate the collaborative success in honor of the animals we were not able to save.
“I always thought someone should do something about that…then I realized, I am that someone”, describes founder Jason Flatt. Be part of the Forlorn Family and be that someone too.
This kid-friendly event includes a FREE screening of The Champions documentary, meet and greets, and educational sessions with Best Friends Blood Bank, Dog Safety for Kids with Millie Travis, and Dog Nutrition from The Good Dog Company & Shoppe. The Candlelight Vigil event is also free and will be followed by a celebratory party. The guest speaker for this year’s Vigil is Jamie Beuhrle: pitbull mom, advocate and wife of MLB pitcher Mark Beuhrle, whose family is featured in The Champions.
The After Party will feature a silent auction, raffle, food by Ibiza Catering, and music by Kristin Tinsley. After Party tickets start at $25 for general admission, $60 for VIP, $10 for kids 7-14, and free for kids 6 and under. Sponsorships opportunities are available.
