BAD RAP Anniversary Celebration

BAD RAP's 10 Year Anniversary - History is Made Celebration
Photo Exhibit and Band Concert
December 5, 2009
6 - 10 pm at the Takara Saki Factory in Berkeley, CA.

BAD RAP has invited several renowned photographers to show their work in a ONE NIGHT ONLY exhibit that captures some of the best media moments in pit bull history.

OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY! As part of their ten year retrospective, photos of BADRAP dogs and their caretakers captured by some of the country's most talented photographers will be on display for one night only. These images have been widely published in newspapers and magazines as the world is introduced to a more compassionate view of pit bulls. Many will be available for sale at the event, in time for your holiday giving. Contributing artists:
Carol Guzy's Washington Post series, Shelter for the Scarred,
AP photog Eric Risberg's collection of Vick dog photos,
AP photog Jeff Chiu's Missouri bust dog series
and many others.

Many of the framed photos will be available for sale at affordable prices, ready to take home with you at the end of the night. Bring your gift giving allowance!

Meet some of BADRAP's dogs and score a dog-signed copy of 'the' Sports Illustrated. Good company, great art, complimentary sake tasting. AND at 8:30pm, the woman who is owned by the one and only Jonny Justice takes the stage with her upright bass to belt out tunes with SF darlings, Thee Merry Widows.

This is a Dress Your Best event. No dogs please, but supervised kids are welcome.

BADRAP is a small and busy non-profit organization of pit bull owners, trainers, educators, rescuers, and supporters. BAD RAP evolved out of a desire to respond to the difficult issues facing this misunderstood breed. Visit their website for more information about this event, as well as their ongoing programs. Be sure to take a look at the Michael Vick dogs who are now ready for adoption.

Though we can't travel to California to attend, all of us at For Love of a Dog Jewelry will be celebrating with BADRAP in spirit. What a howling good job they do!
