Raising Funds for Local Animal Welfare Organizations

The 4th Annual Faith, Hope & Pups Polo Luncheon to be held at Empire Polo Club in Indio this Sunday, February 7th, will raise much-needed funds for local animal welfare organizations including The Bianca Rae Foundation, Loving All Animals and Living Free Animal Sanctuary.

The reception and silent auction will begin at 10:00 a.m., with brunch, polo and a live auction at noon. Also included will be a raffle, vendors, plus adoptable dogs will be on site hoping to find their forever home.

Local KESQ morning show news anchor, Bianca Rae, created Faith, Hope & Pups four years ago, and it has grown to become a signature event each February raising money and awareness for the Valley’s many homeless companion animals.  More than $100,000 has been distributed to animal welfare non-profits since the inaugural Faith Hope & Pups event.

“When I started this four years ago, I hoped for 50 people. Now we reach more than 250 with a waiting list. That’s a lot of money raised for local animal welfare groups with such a passion for helping homeless animals,” said Bianca Rae, founder of The Bianca Rae Foundation. “This is such a beautiful reminder that so many people in the valley want to help and really can be a part of creating a No Kill Coachella Valley.”


Event sponsors include KESQ News Channel 3 The Deserts News Leader, Empire Polo Club, Humane Society of the Desert, My Little Flower Shop, RumChata, The Slice Pizzeria, Brandinni Toffee, Signs By Tomorrow, Coachella Valley Weekly, The Joey English Show, Freeze Booth Photo, Mellany Miller Photography, and My Little Flower Shop.

Cost is $95 per person, or $950 for a table of ten. Black and white brunch attire is encouraged. For tickets, go to LovingAllAnimals.org.
