Fresno, Calif. – The stanchions have been polished and the shelter dogs and cats are practicing
their walk for the first annual Red Carpet Rescue fundraiser event Friday, February 24th! From 6pm –
10pm, help celebrate its big milestone and give back to the animals!
With a nod to the upcoming Academy Awards, the Valley Animal Center is partnering with Stefanelli
Distributing to host its first annual Red Carpet Rescue, celebrating 25 years of service to the dogs and cats in
our community. The evening will begin with our fans stepping onto the red carpet where our adorable
adoptables will be showcased in our Mobile Adoption Rescue Caboose. As they make their way down, the
guests will be greeted by the “Puparazzi” where they can pose for their own red carpet moment. Post
“Puparazzi,” the festivities will include a decadent buffet by Pardini’s, premium wine tasting by Stefanelli
Distributing and incredible live and silent auctions. All funds raised from the silent and live action items, ticket
purchases and sponsorships will benefit these pet celebrities at the Valley Animal Center.
We will be honoring Christine Morykwas, the founder of Valley Animal Center – originally known as
the California Feline Foundation. We’ll be giving her the Oscar for Best Supporting Woman of the Valley
Animal Center.
Individual tickets to the event are $65 each, as well as sponsorship tables available for purchase at
https://valleyanimal.org/redcarpet. 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to benefit our shelter.

Development Manager, at (559) 243-9011 or diana.johnson@valleyanimal.org.
