Stars to the Rescue
At this star-studded 29th annual event, guests gathered at Walnut Creek’s Lesher Center for the Arts to socialize, sip wine, and bid on silent auction items in support of Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). Grammy-nominated country singer Trace Adkins, the Pacific Mambo Orchestra, Al Pitrelli, Jeff Scott Soto of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and comedian Elayne Boosler all took the stage over the course of the night. The proceeds go toward funding ARF’s facilities and programs, which help save shelter animals.
