The Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals celebrated 125 years of great success on the evening of November 2 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel with their “Howling Success” patron party and gala.

Chaired by Christine Fontana, Suzanne Lanks and Catherine Shreves, the evening raised money to help over 20,000 animals that come through the doors of the LA-SPCA every year. Event festivities included the presentation of the 2013 Dorothy Dorsett Brown Humanitarian of the Year Award to Rachel and Herb Dyer of local favorites the Bulldog and the Velvet Cactus for their generous work on behalf of the organization.

Led by celebrity chairs Angela Hill, Katherine LaNasa and Grant Show, patron party guests enjoyed music by Sasha Masakowski, while gala guests watched Jubilation!, a special event presentation by the 610 Stompers and an appearance by the New Orleans Saints Mascot, Gumbo. Over 30 landmark New Orleans restaurants provided edibles and libations while guests mingled, danced and enjoyed live and silent auctions.
