FACE Foundation hosts 4th annual ‘Bags & Baubles’


Animal lovers and fashionistas enjoyed “Bags and Baubles!” April 27 at a private estate in Rancho Santa Fe. The Foundation for Animal Care and Education (FACE) hosted its fourth annual silent auction to raise funds and awareness for local family pets in need of critical or life-saving veterinary care.

Hundreds of handbags, clutches, and accessories from designers such as Prada, Fendi, Dior, Stella McCartney, and many more were available for bid at a fraction of their original retail value. The event also featured over 100 leather-free, or “vegan” bags, an array of gorgeous jewelry, and select men’s items including designer wallets, ties, and belts.

Attendees also had the chance to tour the regal, sprawling estate, participate in an opportunity drawing with fabulous prizes, and mingle over delicious wines, extraordinary appetizers, and decadent desserts. For more information, visit
