The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) is now accepting donations of new and gently loved high-end designer handbags, jewelry, accessories, and sunglasses for their 6th Annual Bags & Baubles event, which will take place on Sunday, May 1 at a private Rancho Santa Fe estate. “Donating an item to Bags & Baubles is the perfect way to do a little spring cleaning while simultaneously giving animals in our community a second chance at life,” FACE Executive Director Brooke Haggerty shared.

The premier fundraising event of the season, Bags & Baubles brings animal lovers and fashionistas together under one roof to raise money and awareness for local pets in need of critical or life-saving veterinary care. Donated items are fully tax-deductible and will be auctioned to provide grants to local families who are unable to afford the high costs of treatment for their critically injured or sick pets. Over 450 guests attended last year’s event, which raised over $117,000.
