Guests had a hot doggity time at The Astorian at the Friends For Life Among Friends Gala benefiting the no-kill adoption and rescue organization, founded by Pat Larson and Salise Shuttlesworth (pictured, from left). Co-chairs Christine and Michael McWilliams and Terri and Roger Peak, along with underwriting chair Don Sanders, were happy about the $500,000 raised to help expand FFL’s programs. Guests were greeted by Cassie, a tutu-wearing FFL-alumni dog. Before the reception, guests enjoyed cocktails along with potato aloo samosas and coconut curry carrots.
