Hello Bully is a little rescue doing big things, and our gala is no exception! We are so excited about our TENTH annual Lovers Not Fighters Gala! Join us on Saturday, April 28th, at one of the most spectacular venues in the city, The Wintergarden at PPG Place. We are so looking forward to our third year at this magical venue. The Lovers Not Fighters Gala has been voted Best Benefit Bash by Pittsburgh Magazine, two-years running!

We are thrilled to welcome our very special guest, founder of Pinups for Pitbulls, Deirdre “Little Darling” Franklin. Pinups for Pitbulls works to educate the public about Pit Bulls and raise awareness to the problems with Breed Specific Legislation. This year, our VIP guest experience is going to be truly special.

Hello Bully’s Lovers Not Fighters Gala is our biggest fundraising event of the year. It is a celebration of the animals and people we help through our rescue and programs, and of our continued dedication to our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and repair the reputation of the American Pit Bull Terrier; and to provide assistance to all companion animals of underserved communities with a goal of reducing overpopulation and preserving the human–animal bond.

Hello Bully needs your help in making this award-winning event our most successful yet. Our goal has always been to raise $50,000 for our mission, and the animals and people we serve. We have come close in years past, but this year we know that with your help, we can reach our goal! Every donation counts!

Retro Fest is a celebration of rockabilly and vintage culture! Now a 2 day event on Saturday July 28 and Sunday July 29 at the Lancaster Host Resort! Retro Fest was created in 2016 as an event to bring the East Coast rockabilly and vintage community together and to celebrate the uniqueness of its culture.

We work with local organizations, businesses, car clubs and vendors to have a festival
full of music, vintage, classic cars, and numerous other activities.

The term “rockabilly” is used to describe a kind of music that mixes elements of rock and roll, rhythm & blues and country. It has expanded into a category that involves everything included with 1950s style living.

With the 1950s and a bit of 60s and 70s in mind, we hand pick everyone who is involved in our festival to ensure they fit the theme.
