Did we mention that the 2015 Sugar & Champagne Affair is BYOD? That’s right – bring your own dog for this fantastic night out on the town (dogs must be leashed; no retractable leashes). Be sure to stop by the photo booth and capture a snapshot of you and your pup! This amazing photo booth will print out your pictures on the spot for an event souvenir to take home. If your pooch isn’t up for a night out on the town, don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of adoptable dogs waiting to meet you!
