BFF Omaha (bffomaha.org) is inviting everyone to barf it up in support of the organization on Saturday, May 13 from 2 to 6 p.m. in the Benson Creative District. B.A.R.F. is short for Benson All-Star Rumble: a Fundraiser! BFF Omaha is partnering with area bars and businesses to raise money in support of their mission to build community through arts engagement.
Teams of four will compete in creative challenges at participating locations in hopes of winning prizes and capturing the title of the ULTIMATE BARF! The Benson Creative District will come to life with on-street performers, live music, free pedi-cab rides, food and fun! Teams are encouraged to dress in costumes, engage with their fellow community members and ultimately have fun for a good cause. Kids are welcome to participate for free at the family-friendly location at Ted and Wally’s.
Benson-located businesses are welcome to support BFF Omaha by hosting a creative challenge or becoming an event sponsor. BFF volunteers will be present at each location to monitor the challenge and participants. Event goers can also expect food and drink specials or special events and programming at participating locations.
The “ULTIMATE BARF” team will be announced following the charitable competition at Petshop Gallery (2727 N 62nd St.) at 6 p.m., where the entire community is invited to celebrate all neighborhood all-stars with an award ceremony followed by special TBA performances.
