Doris Day Celebration & Animal Devotional
Recording star and screen legend Doris Day is celebrating a landmark birthday with an auction to benefit her favorite cause: animals.
Her nonprofit Doris Day Animal Foundation will mark her 90th birthday (April 3, 2014) with a bash in Carmel, California.
A sold-out fundraising celebration at Day's Cypress Inn will include a doggie fashion show, adoption event and an tribute dinner for fans and friends on April 4, 2014.
Items autographed by Day and celebrity pals including Paul McCartney and Tony Bennett will be auctioned off online and at the dinner. Online bidding ends April 1. 2014.
In a statement, Day said she doesn't care much for celebrating birthdays with cards or gifts, inviting fans to help animals instead. As Day put it: "I'm all about the four-leggers." MORE HERE
