Community Humane Heroes Honored 10th Annual Sugar & Champagne Affair

What do Nationals’ pitcher John Lannan and DC Councilmember Mary Cheh have in common?  They are both being honored by the Washington Humane Society for their commitment to helping WHS end animal cruelty and pet homelessness. To celebrate a decade of Sugar & Champagne, this year for the first time ever, WHS is celebrating these special individuals and businesses with Humane Hero Awards.

“WHS is honored to have amazing community partners who advocate for animals. These men and women truly care about our mission and their work to support us has made a huge impact on the animals were care for.  These Humane Hero Awards are just a small token of our gratitude,” said Lisa LaFontaine, WHS President & CEO.
