‘Cleo-cat-ra’ & ‘Bark’ Antony Pet Costume Contest! at the Franklin Institute – Plus The Bad Dog Ball Info

On Saturday I ran over to catch the ‘Cleo-cat-ra’ & ‘Bark’ Antony Pet Costume Contest! (Except I was too late as I was photographing SAFE car chases, but the Franklin Institute provided these snaps)

Calling all pet owners and Ancient Egyptian fanatics! Dress your pet in head-to-paw ancient Egyptian gear and head over to the Franklin Institute for a chance to win one of two cash prizes or Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt tickets! All pets are welcome and will be judged on the originality and creativity of their costumes! The event takes place Saturday, October 30 from 1-3pm at the Franklin institute, 20th Street & Ben Franklin Parkway. Grand prize is $500, second place is $250 and third place winners receive 2 tickets to the Cleopatra exhibit. See you and Fido there!

Congratulations!! – Do you like to party with your pet?
The Bad Dog Ball is a young professionals’ cocktail party and fundraiser held on the same night as the Good Dog Gala at the gorgeous Loews Philadelphia hotel. Hosted by the Young Friends of the Pennsylvania SPCA, the Ball introduces philanthropic young professionals to the lifesaving work of the organization at a party featuring hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, a live DJ, dancing, photo ops, raffle prizes and more. The best part is, guests can party the night away with their four-legged friends! Dogs (good and bad) are welcome to attend. The Bad Dog Ball also doubles as the “after-party with attitude” for the more formal Good Dog Gala.
