What could be better than saving an animal's life AND getting a VIP tour of your favorite soap opera by one of its stars? THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS' Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) is making both of those things happen!
Egan is donating a personally guided tour of the Y&R set to benefit The Riedel And Cody Fund, a charitable organization that provides funding and support to people whose pets have been diagnosed with cancer and can't afford treatment. The highest bidder (and guest) will get the chance to go behind-the-scenes at Y&R, watch the taping of the show and meet cast members, all while giving a remarkable gift of health to an animal in need.
"I was always a huge animal lover growing up, but now that I have a dog, I have an extra sensitivity to it," says Egan, who has a five-year old CavaPoo (King Cavalier / poodle mix), named Sophia. "There are 12 million dogs and cats every year that are diagnosed with cancer. I was shocked by that number. I kept thinking about families who love their animals just as much as I do but can't afford surgery, medicine. How heart wrenching. Any way that I can help raise a dollar for them, I will. We thought by auctioning off a tour of Y&R that all the money could go to The Riedel And Cody Fund and their families who need support for their animals that are sick."
The auction will be live until Monday, February 18 and you can bid by going to : https://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/334704.
