On May 6, the 10th Anniversary of Art for Animals celebrated with its biggest and most successful year yet. The annual fundraiser raised a whopping $55,000 net for Pet Community Center's spay, neuter and wellness programs.
Guests were greeted by a red carpet photo opportunity, and enjoyed seated dinner as well as cocktails and wine.
The sprawling silent auction offered a great variety of items, from artwork and home decor to gift baskets, gourmet foods and more.
As always, emcee Chris Rayman hosted a lively and entertaining art auction, where the crowd fought hard for the right to take home their favorite pieces as well as all-inclusive vacations to Florida and Chicago.
It was a fabulous evening at the Factory at Franklin, and broke last year's fundraising records by a long stretch... a great win for the many pets and families who will be helped with these funds.
