RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club was filled with goodies Dec. 7 to help shoppers prepare for the upcoming holidays and, at the same time, help pets in need of expensive veterinary care.
The Foundation for Animal Care and Education, or FACE, held a “Jewels and Jammies” shopping extravaganza and people filled the Garden Club despite the rainy weather outdoors.
“We’ve had a very good turnout,” Cini Robb, one of the co-chairs for the event, said. “We’re so glad people took the time despite this rain.”
Late in the afternoon professional golfer Corey Pavin and baseball Hall of Famer Fred Lynn helped by keeping the gents entertained while their wives shopped.
There was also a raffle and silent auction, with the proceeds benefiting the FACE Foundation.
FACE is the only organization in San Diego County that helps pets that are already in loving homes, but whose families cannot pay for emergency or critical care pets may need to survive.
This helps prevent “economic euthanasia” where pets are being put down because families cannot afford the treatment to save their pet’s life.
FACE has been in operation since 2006.
