“The Healing Power of Animals” will be the theme when Rancho Coastal Humane Society holds its annual “Celebration of Second Chances” on Saturday evening, September 7, 2013 at the world famous Del Mar Country Club, 6001 Clubhouse Drive in Rancho Santa Fe.
This year’s event will highlight Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s “Pet Assisted Therapy” program. Guests will be treated to the world premiere of a video that will introduce them to the people served through PAT, the human volunteers who donate their time and talents to enrich the lives of others, and the “Love on a Leash” trained and certified therapy dogs that deliver the Healing Power of Animals.
“The Celebration of Second Chances is our major fundraising event of the year,” says RCHS President Jim Silveira. “But it’s also a time for our friends and supporters to gather together and celebrate the lives that are saved and the futures that are changed because of the programs and services that RCHS provides for people and animals.”
Silveira says that the Celebration of Second Chances will also honor the work of Christine Mabee. “Chris is not only a longtime friend of Rancho Coastal Humane Society, she has dedicated much of her life to helping animals. Now it’s our turn to show her how much we appreciate all she’s done.”
KFMB-TV reporter Jeff Zevely will return for a third year as Master of Ceremonies.
Seating options are “Heart and Soul.” Tickets in the “Heart” level are priced at $175. “Soul” level seating is $275 per person.
Proceeds of the Celebration of Second Chances are used to provide programs and services for the people and animals that rely on RCHS. Join Barking Beast and San Diego Pets Magazine at this exicitng and prestigious benefit.
