ARF will honor Nan Bush and Bruce Weber with the Champion of Animals Award at the 2017 Bow Wow Meow Ball. Nan and Bruce are long-time ARF supporters who have so frequently incorporated their love for animals (including ARFans) into their celebrated projects in film and photography. Their award will be presented by past honorees Katharina Otto-Bernstein and Peter Marino.

Celebrated decorator and ARF Board Member Alex Papachristidis will again join the nation’s leading event planner, David Monn, to transform ARF’s Adoption Center in Wainscott into paradise. Cocktails begin at 6:30, followed by dinner – catered by Cloud Catering & Events featuring sustainable fish and vegan specialties – and dancing with the Peter Duchin Orchestra.

Special guests will naturally include the cats and dogs of ARF, with their incredible stories of resilience and hope.

Expect to fall in love.
