Art for the Animals benefit show in Pasadena March 10

Gale's Restaurant, well known for its wonderful northern Italian cuisine, fabulous art and generous community spirit, will host “Art for the Animals” to benefit the animals at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA (PHS). The show will run from March 10 to May 4. The restaurant will donate a portion of its proceeds to the animals at the shelter.

Participating artists include Terry Beland, Becky Bishop, Linda Dupas, Marian Fortunati, Kay Henry, Margot Lennartz, Lynne McDaniel, Walt Peragoy, Belinda Del Pesco, Chris Runco, Leslie Saeta, George Scribner, Laurel Scribner, Julie Svendson, Elizabeth Tucker, Laura Wambsgans and Karen Winters.

“Community support is vital in helping the animals that come into our care. We’ve been able cultivate a strong, lasting relationship with Gale’s,” says Steve McNall, CEO and president of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “We’re entering our 110th year in serving the animals and the need to help animals has never been greater.”

An artist reception kicks off the benefit on Sunday, March 10 from 3-6 p.m. Gale’s Restaurant is located at 452 S Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena. PHS is in the midst of major expansion project with construction of the Animal Care Campus expected to open later this year. The money raised will provide food, shelter and medical care to homeless animals, nearly 12,000 of which are taken in by the Humane Society every year.
