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.
