About event

Join us for a night of elegance and compassion for our furry friends at the first annual Sula Society Bow Wow Gala! As the stars twinkle above, we will gather on the evening of November 25th, 2023, at the world-famous Hacienda San Angel in Puerto Vallarta. The Sula Society's mission is to transform the lives of homeless and abused dogs in Puerto Vallarta, giving them a second chance at happiness. 

Our sanctuary, nestled just outside Puerto Vallarta, is a haven for currently over 300 dogs. Its sprawling walled compound, lawn space, agility area, and meandering river for the dogs to frolic in genuinely embody the idea of a safe and welcoming home. 

We invite you to join us for The Sula Society Bow Wow Gala to support this much-needed cause. This prestigious event promises to be an evening to remember. From the moment you step through the doors of Hacienda San Angel, you will be enveloped in an atmosphere of sophistication, glamour, and heartfelt generosity. Prepare your taste buds for a gastronomic extravaganza as our culinary maestros present an exquisite dinner expertly crafted to delight your senses. Savor the delicate flavors, complemented by a selection of fine wines that will leave you in awe. Entertainment of the highest calibre awaits you, with Kim Kuzma and Mariachi La Joya de México performers taking the stage to captivate your heart. Immerse yourself in an enchanting atmosphere as melodies fill the air. 

The pinnacle of the evening will be our fabulous live auction, helmed by the world-renowned auctioneer John Curley. Prepare to be dazzled as rare treasures, exclusive experiences, and coveted items go under the hammer, offering you the opportunity to acquire something genuinely extraordinary while making a profound difference in the lives of our four-legged friends. This is not merely a gala but a movement of compassion and solidarity. 

Media outlets will be present. By attending and generously participating, you will be an integral part of the Sula Society's journey, bringing hope and happiness to the lives of these precious dogs. 

Together, let us embrace the spirit of giving and demonstrate the power of unity. Join us at The Sula Society Bow Wow Gala, a night where glamour meets the purpose and together, we create a brighter future for our canine companions.
