The 2017 Bully Ball

The eighth annual Bully Ball will take place March 4, 2017 at the St. Regis, Atlanta. The event is chaired by former Atlanta Falcon, Bill Fralic and his wife Susan. Richie Arpino will serve as Master of Ceremonies. The black-tie event features a seated dinner, live and silent auctions, casino games and performing this year, The Potentials. Bulldog lovers from across the Southeast will gather to raise money for the Georgia English Bulldog Rescue. Celebrity bulldogs in attendance include Citadel mascot, General II, and Mississippi State’s official mascot, Bully XXI.

Sample auction items include a Porsche Experience, a luxury New York getaway, custom Bulldog artwork, Pappy Van Winkle, a VIP Golf weekend for 4 and much more. Four featured artists- Rubem Robierb, Chad Shore, Timothy Berry and Sean Curtis, will be creating one-of-a-kind lifesize fiberglass bulldog statues for attendees to bid on. The 2016 Bully Ball raised over $155,000 ensuring that no dogs will be turned away due to lack of funds.

GEBR relies solely on donations to re-home and rehabilitate neglected English bulldogs. All money raised at the 2017 Bully Ball will go directly to the medical care of their rescued bulldogs. Tickets start at $200 for individuals, VIP tables and sponsorships are available.
