Saturday I attended a fundraiser to benefit Hope for Life Rescue. This organization, based in Virginia Beach, focuses on the rescue and placement of abandoned animals.
This fundraiser took place at EVOFIT in Virginia Beach. EVOFIT is owned and operated by trainers Debbie Puckett and Joey Guth. It was not hard to see the support the community extended to these two. It is obvious these individuals are involved and committed to making a difference in the community. The Mayor of Virginia Beach, Will Sessoms, was on hand to announce the function show. Mayor Sessoms was quoted stating “She gives back to the community” about EVOFIT owner Debbie Puckett. According to the EVOFIT Facebook page on Sunday, they raised over $5,000 at the event!
The event featured a function show that showcased athletic fashions by Lululemon in Virginia Beach. Local athletes and trainers were the participants in the show.
There were also several wonderful raffle prizes including pet baskets for both dog and cat lovers and a 50/50 raffle of cash…which the winner donated his portion back to the Hope for Life Rescue.
The event was catered with wonderful healthy and tasty hor d’oeuvres such as stuffed cherry tomatoes, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, and truffled egg salad! The food was displayed beautifully and was delicious. Not to be overlooked, there was plenty of champagne on hand as well!
I look forward to attempting a workout at EVOFIT soon
