Tempe-based Lost Our Home Pet Rescue held its Sit Stay Brunch on Dec. 3 at the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia. The “Purrfect Holiday Celebration” drew 465 guests, raising $160,000 to support the organization’s general operations.

The brunch included live and silent auctions, inspiring stories, pets and more. Auctiontainer Letitia Frye conducted the live auction.
