Best of Show....
Helen Woodward Animal Center Gala 2010!
It was "Best of Show" and "Best of People/ Dog Watching' as guests arrived for the 2010 Spring Fling Gala at the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe.
Chair Elizabeth Hillyer and Co-Chair Kerry Appleby with their committee planned long and hard to make the evening of June 5th, 2010 a great evening. Great as in raising big dollars for HWAC's adoption and education programs.
Peggy Landon and Elizabeth Davidson
Hundreds of black tie and cocktail attired guests came early for silent auction shopping, cocktails, and a look at a variety of cute dogs up for adoption.
Therapy dogs were on hand too. Oz, the Newfoundland dog of Mary Milton, was on hand in tuxedo bib and all. Oz and Mary not only visit hospital patients, but they are also part of the HOPE Crisis Response Network. Oz was a hit. Especially with Kima The Social Diary's dog. Kima went full alert when she saw her real life boyfriend Oz!
More there enjoying the scene were Maria Desiderata Montana, Ranch & Coast's food editor, Dottie and Edward McCrink, Lisa and Bill Barkett, Betsy Hillyer, she has the wonderful Ark's Antique shop in La Jolla that benefits animal rescue charities, Bettan Laughlin wearing a pretty Missoni knit skirt, Mary and Addison Appleby, and Jacqueline Rhodes, a great-granddaughter of HWAC's founder Helen Woodward..
Jacqueline thought the dance entertainment by the Wayne Foster Orchestra was quite something!
More there included Kathy and Marty Kovacevich, Joyce and Jere Oren, Elisabeth Bergan, Katie and Jeff Holcomb, Graham Ledger, Connie and Bill McNally, Elizabeth and Michael Copley, Anne and Bob Dynes, Valerie and Alex Viterbi, baseball's Steve Finley, and the man with the 'Voice of HWAC,' John Van Zante.
The evening included a rare appearance by twin foals Sunny and 'Angel.'
That night there were a lot of angels. All there to support rescue, adoptions, therapy dog training and services for animals and people in need.
....And that's something to 'woof' about!
