Bags & Baubles Fundraiser.
Saving Pets, One Handbag at a Time.
On Sunday, April 30th, pet lovers and trendsetters alike will come together for the most fashionable fundraising event of the season – Bags & Baubles. From 1:00 - 5:00 pm, the San Diego-based Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) will host its annual silent auction fundraising event at an exclusive Rancho Santa Fe estate to raise funds and awareness for local pets in need of life-saving veterinary care.
Bags & Baubles is a unique event that allows guests to shop ‘til they drop for a great cause. Each item available for bid has been donated to the foundation to help raise money to prevent “economic euthanasia,” when families are unable to afford life-saving treatment for their ill or injured pets.
Hundreds of handbags from designer brands such as Prada, Dior, Kate Spade, Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton, Tory Burch, and more will be up for auction. The event will also feature an array of vintage items, fine jewelry pieces and a collection of accessories and designer sunglasses from brands like Gucci, Valentino and Versace. Along with the silent auction, guests will enjoy gourmet appetizers, wine, delicious desserts, estate tours and a spectacular opportunity drawing.
Nearly 500 guests attended last year’s Bags & Baubles, which raised nearly $150,000 for pets facing “economic euthanasia.” Registration for the 2017 event is open and with a registration fee of only $25 per person. Guests can register online at www.face4pets.org.
