Lil BUB’s visit to the Gem City!


International sensation and cat celebrity, Lil BUB, is set to visit Dayton on November 4th for a special presentation and meet and greet, hosted by Gem City Catfé! The event will be the largest fundraiser of the year for their 501(c)(3) non-profit, Gem City Kitties.

 Lil BUB and her dude, Mike Bridavsky, will be presenting "The Story of Lil BUB", an intimate multimedia experience complete with rare photos and videos, followed by a Q&A with Mike and BUB herself - yes, you can ask BUB questions and she will answer them! The presentation will be held from 3-4pm at the Dayton Liederkranz-Turner events hall, which is across the street from the Gem City Catfé in historic St. Anne’s Hill. General admission tickets for “The Story of Lil BUB” presentation will be $10 and are available for sale below!

 A limited number of VIP Tickets are available for $100, which include:

    • A very generous donation to homeless pets (100% of the proceeds of this event)

    • Meeting and Petting BUB

    • A photo with BUB

    • An exclusive, limited edition signed photo print of BUB

    • Admission and VIP Seating to "The Story of Lil BUB"

    • A special locally-made BUB themed treat

The Meet and Greet will take place in the upstairs of Gem City Catfé from 11am-1:30pm. Special accommodations will be made for guests that cannot travel upstairs.

 100% of proceeds from the event ticket sales will benefit Gem City Kitties, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that is housed inside Gem City Catfé, which connects adoptable rescue cats with forever families through the cat lounge and educates the community through classes, workshops, and advocacy. Both General Admission tickets and VIP tickets are available for sale below. Tickets must be purchased online and can not be purchased over the phone. Tickets will be refundable through October 14th. Refunds can not be accommodated after.

 Exclusive Lil Bub merchandise, including Bub’s 2018 holiday line, will be for sale through event hours at Gem City Catfé, with a portion of proceeds benefitting Gem City Kitties.
