It's that time of year again, the annual Canine Carnival Ball to support It Takes a Village will be here before you know it, if you like Cajun food, helping pups, and a fun night out, this is the event for you! 

The annual Canine Carnival Ball is coming up on June 23rd, but tickets are on sale now. Tickets are $45/person or $85/couple. A table of 8 is $325. But you'll want to get your tickets soon, because they are only on sale until June 18th!

If you're like me and love Cajun food, but hate that we only get it once a year, you're going to love this event, because your ticket includes a delicious Cajun buffet! I had the food last  year, it's to die for!

Of course no evening out is complete without live entertainment, from music, to a mystifier, and a cash bar! There will also be a live auction, and silent auction, and adoptable pets from It Takes a village.

All proceeds from this event benefit It Takes a Village rescue, if you want to help out and enjoy a fun night out, you can buy your tickets now, click here!

Both of my dogs are rescues, and I will forever have a special place in my heart for the work they do in the community. Thanks to It Takes a Village, my sweet George was rescued, and able to find his forever home with my husband, Wrigley, and I! So I'm always extra thankful for the work they do, so my buddy could have a chance!
