Fashion-Friendly Donations Needed for Silent Auction Benefiting Pets in Need

Success Story Lulu at 2015's Bags & BaublesSAN 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.

Bags & Baubles Silent Auction DisplayOver 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 events@face4pets.org
