Doris Day to turn 90 with benefit auction for animals

Doris Day is to celebrate her 90th birthday on April 3, and she will be ushering in her newest decade with a benefit for her favorite cause. Doris Day will be doing an auction for animals. Her nonprofit charity, the Doris Day Animal Foundation, will be holding an event in Carmel, California, according to an ABC News report on Tuesday.

The fundraising celebration – which, incidentally, is already sold out, will feature a “doggie” fashion show and an adoption event, as well as a tribute dinner for her fans and friends on April 4.

Autographed items by Doris Day and some celebrity friends – including Tony Bennett and Paul McCartney – will be auctioned online as well as at the dinner celebration. April 1 is when the online bidding ends.

Doris Day says, in a released statement, that she is all about the “four-leggers,” and therefore is inviting fans to help animals instead of sending cards or gifts for her milestone birthday.

Some sources claim that Day was born in 1923 instead of 1924 – which would make her 91. However, her spokesperson, Charley Walters, says that she was really born on April 3, 1924. Day reportedly provided different ages in the past in order to get work – which, naturally, has led to the confusion about her actual age. Her real name was Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff, and she was born in Cincinnati, Ohio.

In the 1940s through 1960s, Day starred in more than 30 films including “Calamity Jane” and “Pillow Talk.” She is also very well known for having recorded the song “Que Sera Sera.”
