How many times have you attended an animal-rights function where they served guests meat, fish or poultry? Or visited a zoo or an aquarium venue (we're not naming names) that dish up burgers, chicken fingers or tuna sandwiches? Tacky. You won't find any dead animals served at the Much Love Animal Rescue Bow Wow Wow Howlywood celebrity fund-raising party. Instead, you'll see Priscilla Presley and other celebs honored for their charitable, animal-saving efforts. Along with silent and live auctions, Karen Rumora's animal artwork, DJs and comedians Bill Burr, Matt Braunger and Laura Kightlinger, there will be a gourmet vegetarian buffet. Now that's using their horse sense.
