Magic Under the Moonlight

On Saturday, August 13th the Animal Rescue Fund of The Hamptons (www.arfhamptons.org) hosted Magic Under the Moonlight, an evening of dinner and dancing on the ocean at the Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club.

Over 200 high profile guests from New York and the Hamptons attended the magical evening to celebrate ARF and raise important funds for cats and dogs in need. The event was chaired by Rachel and Gary Sumers and all proceeds benefitted ARF, the leading animal adoption center on the East End of Long Island.

Guests enjoyed a raw bar and cocktails, followed by dinner and magic by magician JB Benn. Afterwards, the party continued into the night with music by DJ duo AndrewAndrew and a beach bonfire under the stars. The evening honored Dr. Lewis Berman, Veterinarian and Founder of Park East Animal Hospital, for his 50 years of outstanding veterinary practice and service to the animal welfare community. Longtime animal rescue advocate and renowned New York Post columnist and NBC commentator Cindy Adams introduced Dr. Berman and presented him with his award. Joining in the evening’s festivities was a selection of ARF cats and dogs available for adoption. By the end of the evening nearly $250,00 had been raised in support of ARF and Phoebe, a 3 month old dachshund mix had found a loving new home.
