An elegant evening of dinner and dancing at the ARF Adoption Center in Wainscott.
August 20, 2017: The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons honored Nan Bush and Bruce Weber with the Champion of Animals Award at the 2017 “Bow Wow Meow Ball.” The two are long-time ARF supporters who have frequently channel their love for animals into their celebrated film and photography projects. Their award was presented by past honorees Katharina Otto-Bernstein and Peter Marino.
Decorator and ARF Board Member Alex Papachristidis worked with David Monn, the nation’s leading event planner, to transform ARF’s Adoption Center in Wainscott into a stunning environment.
Cocktails began at 6:30, followed by dinner – catered by Cloud Catering & Events featuring sustainable fish and vegan specialties – and dancing with the Peter Duchin Orchestra.
Everyone fell in love with ARF’s special guests, the cats and dogs available for adoption, and their incredible stories of resilience and hope.
