J.McLaughlin was proud to present their Second Special Shopping Spree to benefit the Animal Medical Center (AMC). The event, a kick-off party to celebrate AMC’s Top Dog Gala, was hosted by Alison Minton and Guy Emile Harley, Top Dog Gala Benefit Committee Members. Despite the wet, windy, wintry weather, guests arrived ready to shop for the cause, among them: Kevin McLaughlin, co-founder and creative director of J.McLaughlin, his wife Barbara McLaughlin, Robert Liberman, AMC’s Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Janet York-AMC Trustee, Karen Klopp, Martha Glass, Grace Meigher and Joanne Andrea.
A percentage of all sales from the Top Dog Gala kick-off event, as well as all online sales through December 1st, will benefit the AMC. “Kevin and Barbara McLaughlin have truly embraced the extraordinary work that goes on every day at the AMC and their partnership will help AMC in its mission to advance veterinary medicine, education and research into naturally-occurring diseases,” said Robert Liberman, AMC’s Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
Guests at this exciting pet-friendly shopping soiree enjoyed wine and hors d’oeurves as they shopped J.McLaughlin’s holiday and resort collections, while their canine companions -among them, an adorable Pug and King Charles Cavelier, scooped up their own special treats.
The AMC’s Top Dog Gala will take place on December 13th at Cipriani-42nd Street. For more information about the Top Dog Gala, contact: Ali.Fine@amcny.org
