The Washington Humane Society hosted its 12th Annual Sugar and Champagne Affair reception which honors local advocates against animal cruelty, Washington Humane Society’s Humane Law Enforcement Officers, Animal Care & Control Officers, and Humane Educators.
It featured “all things sweet” from Tres Leches cupcakes to Chocolate Mousse Bowls, a variety of wines (Sparkling, red, white, dessert wines), and of course lots of adorable dogs.
Hosted by Chef Todd Gray, Ellen Kassoff Gray and 94.7 Fresh FM’s Tommy McFly, the event honored the DC community’s “Humane Heroes” who have had a positive impact on the lives of animals in the District and who have shown tremendous support for our programs and services.
