On Tuesday, June 21, 200 animal lovers set sail on the luxury yacht Atlantis, with a buffet dinner catered by Swifty's Events, for the Third Annual Sunset Cruise with esteemed guest host, The View’s Joy Behar, raising money and awareness for Friends of Animal Rescue (FOAR.org). FOAR is a non-profit organization providing financial assistance to small animal rescue groups throughout New York State who do not have access to other financial assistance. 100% of the monies raised will go directly to save animals in need.

Accompanying Ms. Behar, the charismatic cast of National Geographic’s hit series, Rescue Ink rounded out a special evening bringing together celebrity supporters, animal advocates and individuals pursuing placement of adoptable pets into loving homes and those seeking to end the needless euthanisation of innocent animals.

Of the 40,000 animals who pass through New York City shelters each year, 16,000 of them never make it out. No animal deserves to die because it’s fallen victim to animal cruelty. Please help us continue our mission of giving every animal in need a second chance at life.

Wendy Carduner and the Doubles Junior members wanted to finish the Club’s 35th season with a bang. One loud enough to suit the sensational events that kept the club filled with good times all year long. So, co-chairs Christopher Breck, Michael Gilbane, Elizabeth Meigher, Nicole Hanley Mellon, Nick Papanicolaou, Tatiana Perkin, John Royall and Georgina Schaeffer came up with “Lilly or Louder.” “Lilly” refers to the popular Palm Beach designer Lilly Pulitzer, sometimes called the “queen of prep.” Her bold prints and bright colors have cheered up many a town, country club and soiree from Key West to Booth Bay and all across the country to San Diego and Seattle for the last 50 years or so.

Everybody seemed to get the idea. Take a look at the pictures and you will see what we mean. After all, a party just can’t be too bright or too bold.
