On Sunday, April 26th, local nonprofit FACE Foundation will be holding its special 10th annual shopping event, Bags & Baubles. Held at a sprawling private Rancho Santa Fe estate, this silent auction fundraiser raises proceeds for pets in need of life-saving veterinary care.
Bags & Baubles is a one-of-a-kind event that allows guests to shop for a cause while enjoying a fantastic day with fellow fashion-minded animal lovers. Each item up for bid has been donated to FACE Foundation and 100% of event proceeds will benefit pets facing “economic euthanasia,” when families are unable to afford life-saving treatment for their critically injured or ill pets and are left with only one option – euthanasia.
A $35 early-bird ticket gets you wine and mimosas, hors d’oeuvres, gourmet sweet treats, and goody bags filled to the brim with great giveaways. Up for bid are hundreds of new and gently loved designer handbags, fine jewelry, sunglasses, accessories, men’s items and more.
Approximately 425 guests and volunteers attended last year’s Bags & Baubles, which raised nearly $143,000 for pets facing life-threatening conditions. Registration for the 2020 event is open at www.bagsandbaubles.org.
FACE Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 public charity that has assisted over 2,600 pets 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 or visiting www.face4pets.org.
