PSPCA’s First Annual Bark & Whine Gala

More than 300 guests gathered at the Horticulture Center to advocate for animals.

The evening's other honorees were Mickey and Larry Magid, who have collaborated with PSPCA board member Jen Utley and her husband, Phillies second baseman Chase Utley, to host the successful annual Utley All-Stars Casino Night at Magid's Electric Factory. The Magids also talked about the importance of giving a forever home to their two dogs who they adopted through the PSPCA.
