300x250The Washington Humane Society (WHS) is honoring its Humane Law Enforcement Officers, Animal Care & Control Officers, and Humane Educators with its spectacular annual dessert and champagne reception at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC. For the 13th year, hosts Chef Todd Gray and Ellen Kassoff Gray of Equinox Restaurant and Muse at the Corcoran Gallery of Art will once again welcome DC’s well-heeled animal lovers and their four-legged friends to an evening filled with the world’s finest sparkling wines and over-the-top sugary confections.

The metropolitan area’s most talented pastry chefs will dazzle the senses with visionary works of edible art and gorgeous gourmet desserts. Free-flowing champagne will mark more than a decade of wags and whiskers supporters who came out in honor of our local crusaders against animal cruelty. A celebration not to be missed for both animal and dessert lovers!

Tickets to the General Reception are $90. VIP tickets to the Chefs’ Tasting Room are $150 and include a special two hour savory reception prior to the unveiling of the desserts.
