Jingle Balls 2018: A Pugmas Miracle Silent Auction Fundraiser

  • Central Bark doggy daycare 2004 10 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T3C 0J8 Canada (map)

Grumble Farm Pug Rescue & Re-homing Assistance proudly presents Jingle Balls: A Pugmas Miracle! Silent Auction Fundraiser & Holiday Party!

Please join us on Saturday, November 17th from 1-3 pm at Central Bark Doggy Daycare for an afternoon full of Christmas bidding, fun contests and prizes as well as delicious seasonal treats & beverages to delight your senses.


Our silent auction tables are growing every day with incredible local talent, products, and services. Be sure to follow us on Facebook (Grumble Farm Pug Rescue & Re-homing Assistance) and Instagram (@grumblefarmpugrescue) for updates on items to be bid on (Instagram is your best bet!)

If you have an item you would like to donate to one of the auction tables, please contact!


Libby will be set up in a separate room to take professional photos of your pug with a real bearded Santa Clause! Photos are by donation, and will be e-mailed to you personally after the event. Please sign up at the door to reserve your spot.

Our Santa is the official Santa for the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel, and attended the Victor Nevada Santa School ;) He has experience with WestJet, Market Collective, and multiple festivals and events throughout the city. He is THRILLED to meet the pugs, and all of you!


This one's fun. Bring as many wrapped gifts to the event as you would like to exchange (usually one gift per pug attending). During the exchange, we will compile the gifts together in the middle of the floor, and when your pug's name is called, we will let them wander up to the pile - the first gift they sniff is the gift you get to take home! Consider both human gifts and doggy gifts for your contributions - no chocolate for obvious reasons :)


Sam from Beyond Dog Training will be offering nail trims by donation! Simply sign up at the door when you arrive to reserve your spot.


Wear your ugliest sweaters & pajamas to the event for a chance to win some great prizes for you and your pug(s)! Pugs are also welcome to wear their holiday sweaters and pajamas ;)


Please enjoy a mug of complimentary, slow-cooked apple cider and authentic chai tea while you enjoy the event and browse the silent auction tables. Fresh, seasonal coffee from Salt Spring Island Coffee Co. will also be available, as well as a selection of delicious teas. BRING YOUR FAVORITE PUG MUG to reduce waste & increase hygge!

JACCI will be making & generously donating some of her FAMOUS FUDGE (candy cane & chocolate) for you to sample and enjoy, as well!


Your ticket will be entered into several buckets for some really awesome door prizes to say THANK-YOU for showing up to support the pugs of Grumble Farm. Prizes never disappoint ;)

WE ONLY HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF TICKETS TO THIS EVENT so that we are careful not to go over building capacity, so please purchase your tickets in advance. We will announce on social media closer to the date if door sales will be available.

The suggested minimum donation for entry to this event is $10 per family to encourage bidding, photos with Santa, and Nail Trims :)

If you are interested in Photos with Santa (trust me, it will be worth it!) or nail trims, simply add these options to your ticket purchase below. Photos with Santa are a suggested mininum donation of $15 per pug plus $5 per additional pug. Nail Trims are a suggested minimum donation of $10 per pug.
