On October 1, 2015, "So..." Stories of Life held a benefit in beautiful southern California for Rancho Coastal Humane Society, a wonderful animal welfare group which is among one of the most innovative in the nation.
The event featured true stories about people and their pets based on the theme of “Who Rescued Whom?”
It proved to be a lively evening of stories,live music and the great fun of being able to meet and hug some adorable rescued and adoptive pets.
We're very grateful to our sponsors, San Diego Writers Ink, for getting the word out about this event.
