Betty White will arrive in style to raise funds for animal health

Betty White, the lady we just can't seem to get enough of, will arrive in an antique horse-drawn colonial carriage as she makes a personal appearance at Binn's of Williamsburg in Virginia on October 16th.

White will be attending an event to sign a collection of European handcrafted ornaments called The Pet Set, created by Joy to The World Collectibles. The Golden Girl has endorsed the ornament collection since 1998 and, in typical Betty White fashion, a portion of the sale proceeds will be donated to the Morris Animal Foundation.  Over 200 different ornaments styles are available including the largest dog breed specific glass ornament on the market.

"I am honored to be celebrating a day all about the animals with the city of Williamsburg," said White. "Morris Animal Foundation is dear to my heart, and I look forward to celebrating a healthier tomorrow for all animals."

The signing will be followed by a fundraising event with special guests from the Food Network's Ace of Cakes.  Additionally Charm City Cakes will be presenting White with a one-of-a-kind Betty White themed cake.

For more information and ticket prices for the fundraiser, please contact Binn's at binnsonline.com.
