At this "black-collar" ball, no one took offense when the guests licked their bowls clean. Pet lovers and their furry "babies" graced the Bow & Wow Black Collar Ball and Benefit Dinner for the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) on January 15 at The Gallery in Greenbelt 5, Makati City.
Present at the event were long-time PAWS volunteer Carla Abellana; Zsa Zsa Padilla with her Bichon Frise Gael; Pia Guanio with her pet Enzo; Gretchen Fullido with her Yorkie Doogie; Cristalle Henares with her dogs Mochi and Maki, designer Louis Claparols and his pooch Yohji, Lander Vera-Perez with Shih Tzus Porky and Fluffy; Alyanna Martinez with her Toy Poodle Coco; and the event’s host, Patricia Hizon, among others.
Guests were treated to a buffet by Cibo and Cibo di M. Goody bags and awards were also given away, plus special doggie bow ties and pearl necklaces from Bow & Wow. PAWS Program Director Anna Cabrera also presented the organization’s accomplishments for 2010 early in the evening.
The proceeds of the event went to PAWS. According to Romy Sia, Managing Director of Healthy Options Group of Companies, "Bow & Wow supports PAWS' anti-cruelty campaigns and spay-neuter, rehabilitation and rehoming projects. We hope to continue to raise funds to support the organization with the help of our customers."
