We were proud and delighted to be at the Beverly Hilton Hotel to support the 35th Annual Last Chance for Animals (LCA). This is an investigative organization created by the one and only Chris DeRose. For almost four decades, Chris DeRose has been a leader in the animal rights movement, and an inspiration and consultant to countless individuals and groups dedicated to the animal cause.
We may not realize but, there are so many horrible situations involving the trade of animals, from the cat and dog festivals, dog meat trade, and more. But through LCA the animals get a voice. This is why Jackie the French Reporter loves coming to each of the Annual LCA events, having 4 rescues herself.
I was chatting with the French Reporter to get a recap of this prestigious gala and Jackie mentioned how she absolutely loved Nicky Whelan’s statement…
“Even though tonight, we are at such a majestic place celebrating the victory of LCA, the organization is about how Chris DeRose, and his team, which is made up of his staff and celebrities, shows how they are not afraid to get down and get dirty, no matter how far and difficult the journey may be, making it a do or die situation, the mission is to get it done.”
LCA was Proud To Honor Kim Basinger With The Albert Schweitzer Award and the beautiful Baywatch actress, Donna D’Errico, took home the celebrity activist award.
Many celebrities were in attendance, from Priscilla Presley, Nicky Whelan, Chrissy Metz, and many more.
Overall the 35th Annual LCA Gala will be an unforgettable night.
