The event included a public announcement of Lost Our Home Pet Rescue’s Home At Last capital campaign and anonymous $1 million donation as well as the $250,000 donation from the Rachel Ray Foundation.
The brunch included live and silent auctions, inspiring stories, pets and more. Auctiontainer Letitia Frye conducted the live auction.
