Tea, fashions and canine companions make fundraiser a success

FALLBROOK – Silvergate Retirement Residence’s great room was filled with high energy and the latest summer fashions on Sunday afternoon, June 13, with a high tea and fashion show that benefited the Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary.

With nearly a full house, the event offered guests tea, delicious scones and other delicacies. The sound of laughter and merriment bounced around the room as models, wearing the latest summer fashions provided by Macy’s of North County Fair, strolled through the room accompanied by canine companions.

“It was such fun,” said Janet Lucore, founder of the Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary, who also served as mistress of ceremonies. As the fashion models threaded their way through the tables, guests reached out to pat their canine escorts.

“Everyone just seemed to have a great time and really enjoyed themselves,” said Lucore. “We have many to thank for this event’s success. Chief among them are Silvergate for donating their beautiful facility, Macy’s of North County Fair for the fashions, Rose Gonzalez Plants in Vista, the Sweet Sicilian Bakery in Fallbrook, and the Village News. Board members Pat Wort and Marilyn Carnes organized the event and the models - Deborah Stevenson, Carol Hahn, Barbara Rupert, Karen Smith, Elyssa and Sierra Lowell, Jen and Gavin Aho, Amber Buehman, Joyce Miller, Wayne and Karen Edie, Derek Beirich, Troy Van Horst, and Lynn Borst - have been long-time supporters of the sanctuary.

“It was great to see them having a good time strolling through the crowd with their dogs alongside them,” said Lucore. “It seems as though their furry companions got most of the attention!”
