Charity, Events
Sep 27, 2013


It was a celebration of dogs at the Yorkie Rescue of America Celebrity Charity Event in Hollywood last night. Celebrities like MTV’s America Best Dance Crew judge and choreographer Shane Sparks, celebrity hairstylist Daniel DiCriscio, America’s Next Top Model star Chris Schellenger, actress Melanie Marden, and the handsome actor/model Fabio came out to support the organization which strives to rescue, foster, and give medical care to Yorkies and find them a safe home.

The moving event took place at Lure Hollywood on Ivar Avenue. Sparks, who is currently working on a new dance reality show and dance projects overseas, told Press Pass LA why he supports YROA, “I love dogs and I wanted to support a good cause and contribute to help save them”. The legendary Fabio mentioned that he has a soft spot for dogs, “I think Yorkies and other dogs are a unique kind of species and we have to think about them as people too. They need to be taken care of and given the right attention. This whole event is great and I think more people need to be aware of this growing issue”.

America’s Next Top Model contestant Chris Schellenger told us that he is a big supporter of the organization and that he was happy to be a part of the touching event, “I think we all need to stand up for dogs and other animals because they don’t have voice, and I am here to be that voice of a dog in need”. Schellenger exclusively told Press Pass LA that he is on board for another season of Top Model and is currently working on a feature film and debut album. All of the proceeds from the event went to YROA.
