The Stars Come Out for Canine Cause
Best Friends' Founder Silva Battista and Francis Battista with Emmanuelle
Screen siren Emmanuelle Vaugier (CSI: NY, Two and a Half Men) hosted the second annual Winter Fluffball charity event on January 22nd in support of Best Friends Animal Society. Over 200 guests, including Anna Faris, Cloris Leachman, Lisa Edelstein, and Rachelle Lefevre, mingled and bid on silent auction items at CAA managing partner David Doc O’Connor and his wife Lona Williams’ home. Sponsors for the “pawsh” event included Grey Goose vodka, Rolls Royce, KONG dog toys, and Chef Nick Lorenz, and guests left with a swag bag full of gifts from Blue Dog Bakery, Poetic Paws, and KONG, among others. All in all, the evening was a sparkling success, helping garner high visibility support for Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets effort and raising nearly $25,000 for the cause through donations and auction bids.
