Out on the rooftop, guests shopped vendors and enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails – including The Salty Dog, courtesy of event sponsor Tito’s Handmade Vodka – while taking in picturesque views of the Hudson River. Canine companions were welcome to join the party and Animal League America chihuahua mascot Levi was happy to pose for pictures with everyone.
Even a little drizzle did not dampen any spirits. As one guest commented, “For the cost of a dinner out in NYC, we can have great food, drinks and entertainment, but we get the added bonus of supporting a cause we love!” Giving Day, celebrated by Animal League America annually on June 10, was established to commemorate our founding in 1944, and most importantly the 1.1 million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens saved to date. This year, with the help from generous donors, every Giving Day contribution was matched up to $100,000.
