CAPKickoff2015Over 100 animal lovers partied at Saks on September 10th to kick off the upcoming Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP), 29th Annual Celebrity Paws Gala CAP Takes You on Safari. Greeting guests to get everyone in the Safari spirit, entertainers were on stilts as a zebra, a giraffe and an airbrushed cheetah, generously provided by Jon Halbur and Dan O'Brien, J & D Entertainment. Bobby Dees, General Manger of Saks, was mixing and mingling with the “Top Ten Elite” honorees, their pets and friends. Everyone was buzzing about the Subaru Forester that will be raffled off at the Gala, donated by West Houston Subaru.
