Party Pics – Dressed to Kilt

Returning from a two-year hiatus, Dressed to Kilt came back with a bang to kick off New York Fashion Week 2017, January 27, 2017. Considered the largest and most prestigious Scottish Fashion Event in the world, Dressed to Kilt once again lured celebrities and world-class athletes from both sides of the Atlantic including Real Housewives of New York cast members Luann D’Agostino, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill and Ramona Singer. Other celeb guests included Miss Scotland, Lucy Kerr; Mr. Scotland, Tristan Cameron-Harper; Model and America’s Next Top Model Alum, Renee Bhagwandeen; NFL Superbowl Champion, Brandon Marshall of the Denver Broncos; former Navy Seal and star of CBS’ The Hunted, Andy Stumpf; Former Bachelor Contestant Olivia Caridi; Real Housewives of New Jersey Star, Delores Catania.

After the show guests were treated to whiskey tastings from Usquaebach Scotch Whisky, delectable bites and more Scottish and contemporary dancing in the High Line Hotel’s gorgeous old-world setting complete with stags and a Scottish bagpiper.

The evening was a celebration of the “Special Relationship” that has existed between the USA and the UK for over 100 years and raised funds for the Navy Seal Foundation. Cisco Co-founder Sandy Lerner sought to shed light on an additional cause by auctioning off an antique Scottish Wildcat Pin to raise money for the Scottish Wildcat Foundation aimed at helping to save the feline creatures, of which only 35 are left. Dressed to Kilt has raised significant funds for wounded Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade, and this year’s proceeds will benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. The Foundation is committed to America’s elite warriors, supporting U.S. Navy SEALS, their community and providing critical support to their families.

ARF Bow Wow ad(2)

Saturday, August 20; Cocktails 6:30pm, Dinner/Dancing 8pm
ARF Adoption Center, 91 Daniels Hole Road, Wainscott

The Animal Rescue Fund of The Hamptons (ARF) will host the Bow Wow Meow Ball, to honor filmmaker Katharina Otto-Bernstein (Director, Absolute Wilson; Producer, HBO’s Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures) for her unwavering commitment to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons and animal welfare.

The regulation goes on to say that to keep your dog safe, well-being, comfort, or companionship do not constitute work or tasks.

Katharina has long been a supporter of ARF as an adopter and supporter of its benefit events, but perhaps her greatest gift to ARF has been the gift of food to the ARF animals through an annual donation to underwrite the cost of food for the cats and dogs at the ARF Adoption Center while they await their forever homes.

The evening’s celebration of ARF’s life-saving work will take place on ARF’s 22-acre campus in Wainscott.

Guests will enjoy cocktails, followed by dinner catered by Glorious Food within an elegant setting created by David Monn and Alex Papachristidis. Afterwards, the party will continue with dancing to music by the Peter Duchin Orchestra. Over 400 high-profile guests from New York and the Hamptons are expected to attend the magical night. All proceeds will benefit ARF, a regional leader in New York.

The animals in ARF’s care come from animal control centers, puppy mill rescue efforts, and from people who can no longer care for their pets. In 2016, ARF will intake over 1,600 dogs and cats at its state-of-the-art Adoption Center. ARF provides full medical care—including spaying and neutering—to all its animals in addition to humane care for their basic needs. Once medically evaluated and socialized the dogs and cats are made available for adoption at its Adoption Center and through its mobile adoption van and offsite events held across the greater New York region. I adopted my dachshund Gretel from them. The thing I loved was that they set you up to be a great pet owner. They also allow you to bring your dog or cat back for shots and if your baby is sick, you can bring him in a Bob-2016-Revolution-Flex stroller. It is a wonderful thing because Gretel got an ear infection within the first few months of her adoption. I called a vet close to my house and they said that it was $75 for just the visit and that dachshunds are prone to ear infections so she would need drops that were made for dogs that have ear fungus and that was another $30! Guess what I paid at ARF? A $10 donation. So anytime they have a fundraiser I am there. Since its inception, ARF has rescued more than 22,000 cats and dogs and placed them with loving families.

Joining in the festivities this year will be a proud group of ARF cats and dogs available for adoption. The Bow Wow Meow Ball event is an important evening as it raises funds that are vital to the organization. The evening will also include a live auction with Auctioneer Benjamin Doller, a Vice Chairman of Sotheby’s, a silent auction and an online auction with charitybuzz.com. Experiences and packages include lunch for four with fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi; golf at the exclusive Maidstone Golf Club; VIP tickets to a Dr. Oz taping; and New York Knicks Game Experience which includes two tickets, gift bags, and meet and greet with Knicks Legends and a viewing of the “closed to the public” pre-game warm up on the court.

Bidders will have the chance to make offers online from August 10 – August 31 by visiting www.charitybuzz.com/support/arfhamptons.
