Petco Foundation Hope Gala

The 7th Annual Petco Foundation Hope Gala is the foundation's biggest event of the year. It will be on June 20, 2015 at the Grand Manchester Hyatt in San Diego.

I love helping out the animal community in my own little way so I was happy that I was invited to do a takeover of Petco Foundation's Instagram account and report live from the Hope Gala. I will post pictures of the event where you will be able to see me have a good time. 

Dan Cohen, morning anchor on CBS News 8 in San Diego will Chair proceedings at the event. 

The Hope Award is given to a person that shows their commitment to saving and/or improving the lives of animals. The recipients of the 2015 Hope Gala Award are Katherine and Nancy Heigl, co-founders of the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation

Katherine Heigl -

Guests of this event will be able to enjoy a nice dinner, participate in a live auction and end the night dancing and having fun. Proceeds from this fundraiser event will go to Petco Foundation so they can continue to help save and rescue animals.
