Hooray for HollyWOOF – the Sequel!
Last year's trip to Hollywood was so fun, we decided to do it again! HollyWOOF was the place to be as stars turned out in support of Dogs for the Deaf! Betty White--yes, THAT Betty White--made a special appearance at “Hooray for HollyWOOF - The Sequel,” a fundraiser benefiting Dogs for the Deaf (DFD) and PetMatchmaker™, two organizations with common missions of assisting people, rescuing animals, providing innovative programs, and lifetime support to the animals and people they serve.
“The Sequel” references last year’s event with Betty White for Dogs for the Deaf’s 35th anniversary celebration that raised more than $49,000 for DFD and Generation Rescue (Actress Jenny McCarthy’s non-profit for families affected by autism spectrum disorders).
“I’m sure you know how much I LOVE dogs, so you can imagine how excited I was to be asked to be the Celebrity Hostess for this second annual fundraising event for Dogs for the Deaf. The dogs are saved and then they go on to enhance and even save the lives of the people they are helping,” said Betty White.
This year’s star-studded event was held at the Wilshire Country Club in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, Oct. 27. Attendees got to spend the afternoon mingling with Betty White, Marlee Matlin, Elaine Hendrix, Lea Thompson, Ryan Lane, Kristin Bauer, Abri Van Straten, Stephanie Nogueras, David Faustino, Stephen Sorrentino, Joanna Krupa, Daniel Logan,Anderson Davis, Rosie Donovan, Randall, Roxie Bardo, Rosalie Bardo, Carol Welsman, Mark LeVang, Ashley Ilenfeld, Constance Marie and Victoria Summer—just to name a few of the celebrities in attendance. Celebrity supporters were not compensated. They support Dogs for the Deaf out of the generosity of their hearts.
Events included a VIP pre-event champagne reception with Betty White, a live auction where attendees bid on exciting prizes and dream vacations, a silent auction, entertainment and a cocktail reception. In addition to the attendees and celebrities who turned out in support of DFD, donations from many, many sponsors provided everything from auction items, decorations, flowers, photography, videography and so much more. This event was truly made possible through the generosity of wonderful people who want to help dogs and people.
It was a PAWty to remember!
