Businesses and restaurants support the fundraiser through cash donations, in-kind gifts, and gift certificates, which will be presented at the event.
Everytime I’m in Union Station, I’m basically miserable. There are a million crazy people asking for money and tourists walking into you and random bag checks and trains and buses and Circulators and everything is overwhelming. Last Saturday night was no less overwhelming, but not for the clueless Metro riders. The central station was inundated with puppies for Washington Animal Rescue League’s annual Rescue Me! Gala, which features people and pets in black tie enjoying the huge ballroom of Union Station.
In keeping with the animal-friendly theme, vegetarian and vegan food was served, while cocktails were poured at one of several bars stationed alongside the room. Delicious doggie treats that looked like people food were passed around as well, keeping the pooches happy. Adorable animals for adoption were also guests at the event, and attendees were encouraged to take home a four-legged friend from the Washington Animal Rescue League.
