For Its 7th Birthday, Los Angeles Barks of Love Is Celebrating in Paris (Sort of)

For You

Dog lovers better practice their French, as nonprofit Barks of Love is inviting supporters to a day in Paris. Well, sort of.

The Orange County-based organization is celebrating its seventh birthday and doing so in style with two seating for brunch and tea at the Paris in a Cup tea salon in Orange, Calif.

On the menu there will be Croque Madam, warm croissants filled with scrambled eggs, gruyere cheese and French ham; house quiches with gruyere cheese, spinach and onions (with option of adding back and cheddar cheese); an egg frittata and a chicken salad with lettuce and tomato served on a croissant. Paris in the Cup will also be serving its famous scones.

Besides enjoying delicious food and fancy tea, the event will hold a raffle with prizes including a private wine tasting certificate, a wine basket gift certificate, treats and gift cards to BarkBox and a mini breakfast oven and coffeemaker combo.

To ring in the seventh year as a nonprofit, Barks of Love has had several milestones this last year including adopting out nearly 50 dogs, more than doubling its social-media fan base (which helps with getting the word out) and partnering up with a number of companies to organize events, like its St. Patrick’s pub crawl.

While the day marks a birthday milestone, it is also a time to celebrate founder Ashley Cunningham, who will be stepping down from her position as president.

Your ticket to the fete will include a tasty Euro-style dining brunch, tea, a raffle ticket, a goodie bag and strawberry champagne cake. There will be indoor seating and limited outdoor seating for people with dogs. Tickets are $35 or $50 at the door.
