Celebrate Spring NY

LAVO, 39 E 58th Street, New York

Celebrate Spring was first conceived in 2008 by G. Pennington Egbert III, his sister Missy Egbert Sheehan and their close friend Georgina B. Schaeffer.  The three, whose fathers both lived with Parkinson’s disease, joined together to create the Young New Yorkers for the Fight Against Parkinson’s committee, a group of nearly 100 New Yorkers dedicated to advancing a cure for Parkinson’s.  Each year the committee hosts Celebrate Spring in New York City, which has raised more than $750,000 since its inception.

ARF BOW WOW MEOW BALL

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. 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. 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.

Creative Time honoring Craig Robbins

Craig-Robins

Thursday April 28: 6 pm Cocktails 8 pm Dinner
MAST CHOCOLATE’S FUTURE FACTORY, BUILDING 28, BROOKLYN NAVY YARD

Once a year, Creative Time throws a show-stopping gala the New York Observer calls, “One of the art world’s top ten, break the mold spring fundraisers.” Your support of the Spring Gala helps to ensure millions of people have free opportunities to engage with the most trailblazing art of our times. This year, we are thrilled to honor Craig Robins, the visionary behind Miami Design District and Design Miami, and celebrate the inimitable artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, in a fantastical Brooklyn Navy Yard location.

Like Creative Time, Craig Robins ignites the public’s imagination, exploring ideas that shape society and engaging people around the globe. For more than three decades Robins has championed creative communities and fore-fronted public art through his professional life and philanthropy. He has proven himself to be an ever-inspiring cultural leader with an ambition to make the world a better place.

Rirkrit Tiravanija is an artist that embodies the ethos of Creative Time. Tiravanija creates socially-engaged art works that blur boundaries and bring people together, often using human interaction as his primary material. From the 2006 Whitney Biennial to the 50th Venice Biennale to the Museum of Modern Art and the Serpentine Gallery, Tiravanija is lauded the world over.

The 2016 Creative Time Gala is not to be missed. We promise you a night to remember!
