Bees for BARCS

Bees for BARCS

You and your pet are invited to join Calvert School as we support the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) at BARCStoberfest!

October 26, 2019
9:00 A.M. - 10:00 A.M.

Patterson Park Pagoda Hill

BARCStoberfest is a fun-packed day with all proceeds directly benefiting the over 12,000 homeless animals that come to BARCS each year.

*Participants who wish to ride together from Calvert will meet at 8:00 A.M. in the Middle School parking lot. Participants who wish to meet at Patterson Park will meet at Pavilion #1 at 8:30 A.M.


BARCS is a non-profit animal shelter in downtown Baltimore. They take in unwanted, ignored, and homeless animals in Baltimore City.

Calvert School's goal is to raise $4,000 to help these animals that are in need.

Can't make the event? Any donation, no matter how big or small helps us in some way. Thank you for supporting Bees for BARCS and all the animals!
