Fashion-Friendly Donations Needed for Silent Auction Benefiting Pets in Need
SAN DIEGO, CA – On Sunday, May 1st, 2016, animal lovers and fashionistas will unite for the premier fundraising event of the season, Bags & Baubles. The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) will host its 6th annual silent auction to raise funds and awareness for local pets in need of critical or life-saving veterinary care, and they are requesting the public’s support to pull it off.
FACE is now accepting donations of new and “gently loved” high-end designer handbags, jewelry, accessories, and sunglasses for this year’s much anticipated Bags & Baubles 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,” says FACE’s Executive Director Brooke Haggerty. 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 Bags & Baubles, which raised over $117,000 for pets facing “economic euthanasia.” Registration for the 2016 event will begin in January.
FACE is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 public charity, established in 2006. Those looking for information about sponsorships or making a tax-deductible donation to Bags & Baubles can contact FACE by calling 858-450-3223, visiting www.face4pets.org, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
