Are you ready for the Royal Wedding of 2019?! John Paul Bones and Buck will be tying the knot in a wedding to remember! This is not an RDMOC event, but we are proud to help promote ATA Social Club, ALIVE Rescue and The Hot Mess Express.
We invite everyone to join ATA, ALIVE and Hot Mess Express (HME) at the gorgeous venue Loft on Lake for a formal ceremony and reception to follow. They will have Rendition as the live band, surprise guest officiant, food (vegetarian and vegan options available) and drinks will be flowing! Asrai Garden will top off the boys’ special day with floral accents and of course the grooms will look dapper in their custom made suits. We also have an incredible lineup of silent auction items so be sure to grab your tickets soon!
We have VIP tickets available that will get you an awesome swag bag and guaranteed seat for the ceremony. If interested in a general admission ticket, be sure to grab an early bird special while supplies last! Limited dog tickets also available now!
Net proceeds will benefit ALIVE Rescue and Hot Mess Express, the two rescues who saved John Paul and Buck. We look forward to celebrating this very special occasion with you!

Peace for Pits is an amazing volunteer based 501(c)(3) dog rescue who saves countless pitbulls that have been discarded, forgotten, abused, or just flat out neglected. They have been their voice for so many dogs who would never get a chance at knowing what love or compassion is especially with the ‘scary dog’ stigma that follows them. They have rescued sick and broken dogs but they need YOU more than ever with medical expenses and all costs that go into saving these amazing animals. Please join us in helping them lessen the costly burden they have taken on.
All Inclusive Tickets:
$40 at the door

Join our End of Summer Canine Cruise, our final RDMoC Canine Mercury Cruise of 2019!
Boat departs at 10:15, we have to be ready to board by 9:45, since we board at 10 am. Please arrive early enough to park if you drove and potty your pups.
It’s a 90 minute cruise around the lake and river. There are human restrooms on board and a doggy restroom, lined with newspaper. There will also be a water bowl on board for them to keep hydrated.
Beverages – including water, soda, wine and beer – are available for purchase on board. Please note, no outside alcoholic beverages allowed. No food is sold on the boat, though you are welcome to bring your own snacks or brown-bag meal aboard. This is an open vessel that does not feature a full service bar. Cash is recommended.
Cruises happen rain or shine, so there will be no cancellation refunds since we will still have booked & paid for your tickets.
** Final Note: Please exercise your pup before the cruise so they are polite with all guests aboard. We want to be welcomed for future cruises.
Please sign our events waiver.
We can’t wait to ride the lake with our community.
