A Fashionable Fundraiser for Pets
Local nonprofit Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) recently held its 5th Annual Bags & Baubles fundraiser at a private Rancho Santa Fe estate. Bags & Baubles was first introduced in 2011 to help family pets in need of emergency veterinary care and has garnered many loyal supporters over the years. This year, over 450 guests enjoyed appetizers, desserts, wine, and a vast assortment of handbags and other accessories that were available for purchase and auction. Over $100,000 was raised from the designer bags and accessories – ranging from gently used to brand new – and all proceeds went toward FACE’s mission to save pets and help families. “Bags & Baubles is FACE’s biggest fundraiser of the year, made possible by the generosity of our community,” said Executive Director Brooke Haggerty. “Shopping at Bags & Baubles is a win-win – you can help FACE save lives and come away with great bargains at the same time.” For more information on the cause contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
