Bark in the Park raised $250,000 for the Anti Cruelty Society of Chicago last year, so naturally the goal is to do better this year....the event is Saturday (May 7), at Montrose Harbor in Lincoln Park, just after 9 a.m.
Bark in the Park is a 5K walk--with
or without your dog,
The walk doesn't begin until Bill Moller officially starts it live on WGN Radio...Thousands of dogs will wait for Bill to bark. Without him, they go nowhere.
The official emcees for the event will be longtime supporters Hosea Sanders and Roz Varon of WLS-TV, Brian Middleton of Rewind (100.3 FM) and Bart Shore of WBBM-AM. Once again, I will be there as an emcee as well.
After the walk, there are refreshments, and games, including a search for the most talented pets. Many vendors will be on site, from Camp Dogwood to pet food companies, like Hill's Science Diets; to a doggy cupcake vendor, High Hopes.
