WILLIAMSBURG, Va. and DENVER, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Betty White, Emmy award-winning TV star and Morris Animal Foundation trustee, will celebrate animal health in style in historic Williamsburg, Va., on Saturday, October 16. White will arrive in an antique horse-drawn colonial carriage as she makes a personal appearance at Binn's of Williamsburg from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. to sign a collection of European handcrafted ornaments, called The Pet Set, created by Joy To The World Collectibles.



The signing will be followed by a black-tie fundraiser for Morris Animal Foundation at the Williamsburg Lodge, starting at 7:00 p.m. Special guests include cast members of Food Networks' Ace of Cakes. Charm City Cakes will be donating and presenting White with a one-of-a-kind Betty White-themed cake. Presentation of the cake will be featured on an upcoming episode of Ace of Cakes.

"I am honored to be celebrating a day all about the animals with the city of Williamsburg," said White. "Morris Animal Foundation is dear to my heart, and I look forward to celebrating a healthier tomorrow for all animals."

White has endorsed the Joy To The World ornament collection since 1998, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of The Pet Set will be donated to Morris Animal Foundation. More than 200 different styles of ornaments are available that benefit the Foundation, including the largest dog breed-specific glass ornament collection on the market.

The signing is open to the public. Tickets to the black-tie fundraiser are $195 and are available through Binn's. For additional information, please contact Joy To The World Collectibles at 888.367.5889 or Binn's of Williamsburg at 757.229.3391.
