More than 600 people gathered Saturday night for the Joy in the Cause Gala, raising money to help the non-profit that brings joy and care packages to those going through tough situations.
Mavis Pearl, the bulldog, is the mascot who goes into hospitals, nursing home and hospice programs. These Mavis Pearl dogs are part of the care packages given to bring joy others.
The third annual event was held at the Hard Rock with a Mardi Gras theme. Lisa Bain is the founder and executive director, and I was honored to serve as emcee for the night.
Joy in the Cause counts on hundreds of volunteers - truly the heart and soul of the organization.
