It was a cold and blustery April evening in San Francisco but we were happily tucked inside Lovejoys Tea Room sipping elegant cups of hot tea at the Rocket Dog Rescue Fundraiser. Dog lovers of all types came out to support founder Pali Boucher and the amazing work she and her volunteers do to rescue homeless dogs and give them a second chance for a happy life.
Attendees enjoyed Lovejoys delicious vegetarian and vegan tea sandwiches, coleslaw and salad, as well as their to-die-for scones and clotted cream! Some lucky ones got a peek into the future with donated psychic readings by Rebecca Boyd from Celestial Celebrations. The silent auction offered treats for pet owners such as a beauty bash at Benefit Cosmetics. The sold out event brought in over $7000 and to top it all off, we got to meet Pali's BFF, Lightin' Hopkins (pictured above with Pali).
