Following last night’s successful fundraiser, everyone here at HoPe woke up on Cloud 9 this morning. It was a memorable and successful event which helped ensure that countless more pets of the homeless will be provided free healthcare.
As an all- volunteer organization, it’s important to note that the night would not have been a success or even possible without the efforts of everyone involved. So here’s a shout-out to a few of our evening’s superhero’s:
First, a BIG thank you to our host Hanna Hartnell. Not only did Hanna welcome us into her home and design studio with open arms, but she and her intern Blanca even designed and sewed adorable dog and cat bandanas with the HoPe logo on them (pictured right). We’d also like to thank Hanna’s five beautiful models.
We’d also like to send a special thank you to our very generous donators:
- Hanna Hartnell, Hartnell Design: 3 exquisite handmade silk scarves
- Melanie Pozez, Bark Avenue: Grooming, boarding and dog gifts totaling $350 in value
- Gerri Gilliland, Irish Chef and Restauranteur: Two $50 gift certificates to Lula’s Mexican and Finn McCool’s Restaurants
- Caroline von Weyher, Interior Designer at Two Birds: Two modern design dog pillows
- Michelle Lessing, Lilly & Abbie Interiors: A host of beautiful dog leashes
- Diane Rose-Solomon, Certified Humane Education Specialist, animal activist and author: The acclaimed children’s book, JJ the American Street Dog
- Dellarobia Design Studio and Flower Market: Gorgeous flower arrangements
- Labels and Labeling: Donated all of the doggie scarf labels that Hanna & Blanca designed and sewed
- Malibu Vet Clinic: Three $100 grooming gift certificates
- Horses for Productions: Two gentle greyhounds
- Christopher Gray Post Production: All of the post production work of the evening’s video.
Last but not least, we’d like to thank all of our volunteers as well as the fundraiser attendees who took time away from their busy lives to attend this special event.
THANK YOU to each and everyone involved!!! It’s only because of caring and giving people like yourselves that enables HoPe to continue with its mission.
