David Patrick Columbia's New York Social Diary

21 May 2007

Invitations all around

The ASPCA celebrated its 10th annual Bergh Ball “Tails of Time” sponsored by Chopard and hosted by Isaac Mizrahi on May 10th at the Mandarin Oriental. Chopard, celebrating its second year as sponsor of the evening, created an exclusive limited-edition “Happy Paws” charm bracelet which is available at their Madison Avenue boutique and from which a percentage of sales will benefit the ASPCA.

This years' “Tails of Time” auction featured artwork donated by some of the world's most notable photographers including David LaChappelle, Bruce Webber, Roberto Dutesco and Ross Bleckner . 

Among those attending were Matt and Annette Lauer, Chuck and Ellen Scarborough, Andrea Roth, Lake Bell, Nicole Miller, Kate and Andy Spade, Cindy Adams, Richard Meier, Hana Soupkova, Jonathan and Somers Farkas, Ben and Linda Lambert, Nerik Lundqviset of the New York Rangers, Silvana and Marisa Marchetto, Dixon and Arianna Boardman, James Nederlander and Margo McNabb, Lonneke Engel.

The ASPCA was founded 141 years ago and was the first humane organization established in the Western Hemisphere. Today it has more than 1 million supporters. But as large as that number is, the work of the society in helping, rescuing, caring for and placing animals is enormous. You can help even with a small donation, or by adopting one of the beautiful pets they are harboring, or volunteering or by all three ways. Animals in your life bring you love, the likes of which many of us go without almost all of the time.
