If we wanted to bring together animal lovers to help raise money for a great cause who would be the perfect host?


Let’s start with Brooke Shields as our Emcee for an Evening of Dinner and Dancing in the Hamptons…Next we need someone worth to honor… I’ve got it…this years Bow Wow Meow Ball will honor internationally acclaimed architect Peter Marino for his unwavering commitment to animal welfare and the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons.  A longtime supporter of ARF, Marino, also known for his knowledge and status as a collector, and for his impact on contemporary and twentieth century design, founded his eponymous architecture, planning and design studio in New York in 1978. Alongside his work with private clients, Marino has redefined luxury in the retail space, creating store environments around the world for brands such as Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Ermenegildo Zegna, Fendi, Graff, Guerlain and Hublot, often commissioning site-specific works of art for many of them. 




Pick Saturday, August 15th for this grand event with over 400 high profile guests from New York and the Hamptons expected to attend this magical night.  Of course All proceeds will benefit ARF, the leading animal adoption center on the East End of Long Island.


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.

Bidders will have the chance to make offers online from August 5 – August 26 by visiting http://www.charitybuzz.com/support/arfhamptons.


Be warned after a cocktail or two you might just be inclinded to adopt one of special select group of ARF cats and dogs that are currently available for adoption.


The Bow Wow Meow Ball event is an important evening as it raises funds that are vital to the organization and its mission and “its going to be a fantastic party”  “bring together our supporters and help raise funds for ARF while having fun”  said Lisa McCarthy, Board President of ARF.
