Pet Set’s Fierce & Fabulous Gala

By Jennifer Roosth    Photography by: Fulton Davenport

THE SCENE: With sassy and glam cocktial party attire, over 360 guests attended an evening of cocktails, dinner and auction at the Astorian to celebrate the 12th Annual Pet Set Gala. Tena Lundquist Faust and Tama Lundquist chaired the evening for the fourth time, and guest laughed en masse as they enjoyed KHOU Great Day’s ost Decorah Duncan emcee of the event. This fabulous party kicked off the fall social season in Houston.

THE VIBE: The vibe of the evening was celebrities, celebrities, celebrities. The canine celebrity was Charlie, a Pit-bull a rescue from Southside Street Dogs who is missing a leg and brought back to good health. ABC’s The Bachelor Prince Lorenzo Borghese was the celebrity guest of honor. He is the president of Animal Aid USA, a non-for-profit focusing on changing laws to stop animal cruelty. After dinner, there was an auction and lively “after the gala party” with DJ tunes spinning well into the evening.

THE CAUSE:  The Fierce & Fabulous gala raised a record $300,000 to benefit Houston PetSet, an umbrella non-profit organization dedicated to making a difference by providing grants to animal welfare–related nonprofits in the Greater Houston area. Honoree Don Sanders was recognized for his dedication to the animals and for financing a no-kill animal shelter “Friends for Life”. Jan Duncan was also recognized for her $89,000 donation through Houston PetSet for Emancipet to open its first veterinary clinic in Houston’s East End to provide low-cost neuter/spay services.
