Melissa Claire Egan was here…she stars on ‘The Young And The Restless' and plans to auction items from the show to raise money for a group that helps sick pets and their owners.
Melissa is a huge animal lover and has a dog named Sophia
The Riedel & Cody Fund (Riedel is pronounced like beatle) is a charitable organization that provides funding and support to people whose pets have been diagnosed with cancer and can't afford treatment
The Riedel & Cody Fund just launched the 12 Million Dog March which aims to raise awareness that 12 million dogs and cats are diagnosed with cancer every year and to raise money so that animals with cancer can get treatment
Viewers can sign up online for the virtual march at riedelcody.org - Blue Buffalo will donate $1 for everyone who joins and there are also events throughout the country (Melissa attended the LA event a few months back and the next event will be in Chicago in May.)
Melissa is auctioning off a personally guided tour of 'The Young & The Restless' set - highest bidder (and guest) will get the chance to go behind-the-scenes, watch a taping of the show, meet the cast members - go to riedelcody.org for more info. Auction starts next month.
