On Saturday, August 6th the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons will host the Bow Wow Meow Ball @home. The evening will celebrate ARF’s life-saving work and honor Kathleen and Charlie Marder with the Champion of Animals Award. Kathleen and Charlie Marder started their landscaping business in 1975, just a year after ARF was founded, and they have been supporting ARF’s work in the community for 30 years. Through adoption events, garden tours, Thrift Shop donations, silent auctions – not to mention landscaping – their contributions to ARF tell only part of the story of their dedication to our community.
While the ARF campus remains under construction, the public is invited to join the celebration virtually and watch wherever they might be or to host a private viewing party (big or small, fancy or simple). The evening’s program will premiere a 15-minute video about Wink and Buddy, two local animals in need who found their forever families with the help of the ARF Hamptons community. The program will also offer a look at progress on Forever Home, the project to renovate, re-build, and expand ARF’s campus, and the ever-popular Parade of Animals returns, filmed on location this year in East Hampton Village and presented by Lexus of Southampton and Mercedes Benz of Southampton.
Show your support by watching on Saturday, August 6. More details, and to watch the program at www.bowwowmeowball.org.
All proceeds from The Bow Wow Meow Ball @home will benefit ARF, a regional leader in New York for the rescue and adoption of cats and dogs. Since its inception, ARF has rescued more than 30,000 cats and dogs and placed them with loving families.
