LAST CHANCE FOR ANIMALS GALA 2018
Jackie Watson, the French reporter, was honored to be at the Last Chance for Animals (LCA) star-studded benefit gala held in Beverly Hills, CA. The organization celebrated 34 years of fighting animal cruelty and giving a voice to the voiceless.
Jackie had the honor of speaking with Founder Chris DeRosa. Chris, among others, has devoted his entire life to saving animals and he has made many courageous attempts at putting a stop to animal cruelty. According to Chris, Last Chance for Animals has been labeled the Navy Seals of the animal rights group due to the organization’s top-notch investigation skills. Chris has been arrested on numerous occasions in his attempts to save these precious animals. He has even made several attempts at breaking up laboratory testing. Now that takes courage! Go, Chris!
Vito Maria, the founder of The Maria Group, expressed to Jackie the willingness and sacrifice that the workers of this organization have gone through to help save the lives of many animals. Many he said, have risked their own lives for the lives of the animals. This is truly an organization that goes over and beyond the call of duty to save the voiceless.
The night was filled with great performances, and of course, there was plenty of vegan food to go around. It was truly a great night of enjoyment and for such a great cause. We were so very honored to be a part of this event and organization.
Celebrity guests included Alison Eastwood, Priscilla Presley, Donna D’Errico, Mena Suvari, Nina Bergman, Adrienne Janic, Ricky Rocket, Roxy Darr, Frank Stallone, and Nicky Whelan.
Closing thought: Remember, always be kind to animals. And in the words of Shera Danese Falk, ‘If we were all always kind to every animal, what a beautiful world this would be.’
