This past Saturday evening, August 20th, the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons (ARF) hosted its annual Bow Wow Meow Ball.

This year’s honoree was filmmaker Katharina Otto-Bernstein (Director, Absolute Wilson; Producer, HBO's Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures) for her unwavering commitment to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons and animal welfare.

Katharina has long been a supporter of ARF as an adopter and supporter, but perhaps her greatest gift to ARF has been the gift of food to the ARF animals through an annual donation to underwrite the cost of food for the cats and dogs at the ARF Adoption Center while they await their forever homes. Theater director and visual artist Robert Wilson presented the ARF Champion of Animals Award to Katharina.

The evening’s celebration took place on ARF’s 22-acre campus in Wainscott. Guests enjoyed cocktails, followed by dinner catered by Glorious Food within an elegant setting created by David Monn and Alex Papachristidis. More than 400 high-profile guests from New York and the Hamptons attended this magical night. All proceeds will benefit ARF, a regional leader in New York for the rescue and adoption of cats and dogs.
