   Screen legend Doris Day is celebrating a landmark birthday with an auction to benefit her favorite cause: ANIMALS. The nonprofit Doris Day Animal Foundation will mark her 90th birthday in April with a bash in Carmel, CA.  She has devoted herself to animal welfare since stepping out of show business.

   A sold-out fundraising celebration at Day’s Cypress Inn and the Quail Lodge will include a doggie fashion show, adoption event, and an April 4th tribute dinner for fans and friends. Items autographed by Day and celebrity pals, including Paul McCartney and Tony Bennett, will be auctioned off online and at the dinner. All items are accompanied by a personalized thank you note, commemorating the birthday weekend, signed by Doris. Online bidding ends April 1st. Please click on the link below to make a bid:


   Day starred in more than three dozen films from the 1940s to the 1960s, such as Pillow Talk and Calamity Jane; and recorded dozens of hit songs. Her biggest sellers were Secret Love and Que Sera, Sera. She released the compilation album My Heart in 2011.

   In a statement, Doris says she doesn’t care much for celebrating birthdays with cards or gifts, inviting fans to help animals instead. Her devotion to this cause has lasted for decades.
