Philadelphia's favorite philanthropic couple Chase and Jennifer Utley hosted the 5th Anniversary Utley All-Star Animals Casino Night last week. This invitation-only event was held at The Electric Factory, which for one night was exquisitely converted into a special red carpet affair.
Local celebrities, including several supportive Philadelphia Phillies players , made an appearance to help spread the Utleys' well-known mission to prevent animal abuse and neglect, in partnership with the Pennsylvania SPCA. The Casino Night, which over four years has raised over $1 million for the cause, treated guests to a full evening of cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, live and silent auctions, and fun competition alongside distinguished attendees. Notable media personalities Michael Barkann of Comcast SportsNet and Susan Barnett of CBS 3/The CW energetically led the evening as emcees.
