Actress Morgan Fairchild fundraises for metro Atlanta animal shelter
ALPHARETTA, Ga. - You know Morgan Fairchild as the glamorous star of numerous television series and films, including "Falcon Crest" and "Flamingo Road." But what you might not know is that the Emmy-nominated actress is also a tireless advocate for animals — and it’s that passion that brings her to metro Atlanta this week.
Fairchild will appear at a pair of events this week benefitting Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters, the Atlanta-based nonprofit which rescues animals and helps find them forever homes.
First up, the actress will take part in a panel discussion called Timeless Beauty (also featuring our own Joanne Feldman!) at Dillard’s North Point Mall on Thursday evening at 6 p.m., during which 10% of sales will benefit Furkids. Then, Fairchild will appear at Paws for Cocktails, the annual Furkids fall fundraiser, happening Saturday evening at 6 p.m. at the organization’s campus in Cumming.
"I’m very excited because it’s for Furkids," says the actress of the metro Atlanta events. "I love the work they do. They’re the largest no-kill shelter in the Southeast [for cats] … and then Sadie’s Place, which is for rescued dogs, and so I just love the work that they do."
