The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) will bring pet lovers and trendsetters together for a fashionable fundraising event with their 7th Annual Bags & Baubles event on Sunday, April 30. The silent auction will be held at a beautiful Rancho Santa Fe estate to raise funds and awareness for local pets in need of critical or life-saving veterinary care. Attendees will shop ‘til they drop and enjoy gourmet hor d’oeuvres, delicious wine, and estate tours, all for a good cause. Approximately 500 guests attended last year’s Bags & Baubles, which raised nearly $150,000 for pets facing life-threatening conditions.

FACE is also accepting donations of new and gently loved high-end designer handbags, jewelry, accessories, and sunglasses for the event. “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. Registration is now open at FACE is a nonprofit 501(c)3 public charity that has saved the lives of over 1,650 animals to date. Those looking for information about sponsorships or making a tax-deductible donation to Bags & Baubles can contact FACE by calling 858-450-3223, visiting, or emailing
