Stray Rescue of St. Louis held its annual holiday fundraiser in the Chase Park Plaza hotel’s Khorassan Ballroom (212 N Kingshighway Boulevard, 314-633-3000) on December 3. The event featured entertainment, both silent and live auctions, dinner, raffles, and appearances by all-star animals.
The annual gala is Stray Rescue’s largest fundraiser of the year, with the proceeds raised at each event being donated directly to fund medical care for abandoned or abused dogs and cats in the St. Louis area.
Co-hosted by Stray Rescue Executive Director Cassady Caldwell and actor Hunter Sansone, this year’s event welcomed over 600 guests who enjoyed an open bar, a delicious dinner, a holiday candy buffet and visits with adoptable puppies and kittens.
