A humongous thank you to Jill and Barbara who welcomed me with open arms to Monmouth County SPCA's Eat, Drink & Be Mine Valentine's Day Brunch Fundraiser.

This past Sunday, I headed on over to the Navesink Country Club for an amazing afternoon filled with amazing food, dozens of prizes, mimosas, a silent auction, a 50/50, and mimosas! (Plus, the mimosas!)

Nearly $10,000 was raised yesterday afternoon and I could not be more proud to say that I was a part of it. Monmouth County's SPCA has done so much amazing work and adopted 3,643 animals last year and want to help in anyway that we can to keep up that trend!

If you are a lover of our furry friends but are not quite ready to commit to adopting just yet, these benefits are perfect because the money that you spend at the event goes right into the Monmouth County SPCA's pocket for supplies and animal care.

There are quite a few events coming up so you can support the Monmouth County SPCA and all the good work that they do, so look into it now!
