Southampton Historical Museum and Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation are teaming up over Columbus Day weekend for a duo of new Hamptons happenings.
“The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation is proud to co-host Ties and Tales, an event to recognize and celebrate the importance of community,” shared Jerry Rosenthal, Executive Director Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. “We are grateful to Sean Deneny for spearheading this event to recognize the role non-profits play in the Village of Southampton.”
You can start Saturday off with a pleasant stroll to the Bathing Corporation beach in Southampton during Paws on Parade. The pet-friendly walk will depart from the Rogers Mansion (17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton) at 10:30 a.m. – registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. – and once attendees arrive at St. John’s Church, a “Blessing of the Animals” will take place.
“This is a great opportunity for everyone in the family – including Daisy, Lola and Duke – for an outdoor activity during Columbus Day Weekend,” shared Tom Edmonds, Executive Director of Southampton Historical Museum.
After participants make it back to the Southampton Historical Museum grounds, they can stick around for contests, an agility course, auctions, pictures with Bay Street’s Frankenstein Follies Halloween cast, face painting, a light breakfast sponsored by Town & Country Real Estate, and much more. Proceeds from the event will support the animals that reside at Southampton Animal Shelter until they find their forever homes and restoration programs at the Southampton Historical Museum. Registration is $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the event.
“Our shelter is so excited for Paws on Parade and Ties & Tails,” added Kate McEntee, Director of Adoptions Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. “Our shelter dogs will be participating in the walk and will be looking for their forever families. Support Team SASF! Join our team today.”
Later on, head to the Rogers Mansion for Ties & Tails, a Jazz Era themed cocktail party. From 5 to 7 p.m., partygoers will enjoy an open bar and hors d’oeuvres as they explore the 20-room mansion that was developed during Southampton’s Gilded Age. Proceeds will support Southampton Animal Shelter, Southampton Village Fire Department, Southampton Village Ambulatory Corps and SYS’s Stages Children Theatre Group. Admission is $125 until Wednesday, October 4 and $150 from Thursday, October 5 through Saturday, October 7. A Ties & Tails ticket includes two tickets to Paws on Parade.
“Hope to see everyone there!” added Rosenthal. Get ready for Paws on Parade!”
