The Georgia English Bulldog Rescue held Bully Ball X at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead on March 2, 2019. The elegant, black-tie event started with a toast to 10 years of The Bully Ball with a signature "bulldog" cocktail, mixed with Bully Ball X sponsor Tito's Vodka. After a seated dinner, guests hit the blackjack tables, danced to the live band The Potentials, and bid on more than 100 unique silent live auction items including an exclusive Athens Game Day VIP Experience donated by Athens Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for the Georgia-Norte Dame game. The William P. Fralic, Jr. Service Award, created in memory of the NFL Pro Bowl great and Georgia English Bulldog Rescue supporter Bill Fralic, was presented to Darlene Taylor for her outstanding service as a rescue volunteer. All total, the event raised more than $80,000 to assist GEBR in its mission of taking care of unwanted, sick, and abandoned English Bulldogs throughout Georgia and the southeast.
