2010 March 8 Muttville Fundraiser

The Mix
4086 18th Street (at Castro)
San Francisco 
6:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.

Drove up to beautiful San Francisco!

Beautiful weekend in San Francisco with my daughter. Three days of shopping, eating and sightseeing. And helping out senior doggies in need.

Jane and Gina took part in a Do or Die fundraiser to benefit - a senior dog rescue
group in San Francisco.

Muttville is dedicated to improving the lives of senior dogs that have been given up or not likely to find adopted homes. They have a great web site, please visit it to learn more.

Muttville was founded by Sherri Franklin about 2 1/2 years ago. Sherri has made it her mission to save as many senior mutts she can. (San Francisco Chronicle). 

The Mix is located at 18th St. and Castro, in the Castro district.

One could get an autographed picture or memorabilia item with the girls from 6 - 7 pm. Unfortunately I missed out on that opportunity. Actually - it was so crowded I couldn't make it over the photo-op area.

It was an evening of drag/lip sync, comedy and singing. 

The judges were Jane Wiedlin and Gina Schock of the GoGo's!

Master of Ceremonies Joan Crawford - Texas. Joan does Do or Die Mondays at the Mix.

The most exciting live auction item was lunch with Jane & Gina! In an effort to increase the live bidding amount - the girls promise the lunch date would include lots of GoGo gossip.

Jane doing her best as the auctioneer!

Lunch with the girls went for $1,500 -  which was immediately matched to bring it to $3,000!

Another big prize auction item was a framed memento made by Jane's sister. It included signed drum sticks and guitar picks. 

There were lots of raffle prizes such as; dog grooming gift certificates, dog collars, dog beds, and gift certificates for facials, restaurants, spas, massages and skin care products. 

All-in-all,  the girls help raise $5,000 for Muttville. Off course, the doggies are the real winners!

Hi - I love this page! What a great archive for the Go-Go's! I've bookmarked your page so I can come back and peruse your LA info - I have an unrequited love for LA. The Go-Go's were a HUGE part of my feminism of the early 80s (I'm 50 yo now). I LOVE them for so many reasons. Still do. Thanks for the fun jaunt.
