The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation will auction off a British automobile classic; a beautifully restored 1952 MG TD at their 10th Annual Unconditional Love Dinner Dance on Saturday, July 20th, 2019. Proceeds from the sale of this unique car will go toward the Foundation’s mission to support the more than 5,000 animals who enter the shelter’s doors each year. The 1952 MG TD is one of the most desirable MG models produced. It is light, nimble and a pleasure to drive. The car that will be auctioned off is British racing green with a tan interior—an excellent representation of a British Sports car. It has been fully restored and is in great running and driving condition.
The Unconditional Love Gala will take place under the tents at Wickapogue and Old Town Roads in Southampton, NY – starting with a cocktail hour at 6:30pm, followed by dinner and dancing. Entertainment will be provided by Elan Artists’ Nation with dinner catered by Stone Creek Inn. A live auction will feature fabulous items that include packages for five-star European hotels, group golf outings at the East End’s most prestigious golf courses, and more.
The Event Chair is Jean Shafiroff and the Honoree will be Aimee Sadler, Founder & CEO of Dogs Playing for Life. The event’s Host Committee includes: Antonella Bertello, Amy Cosman, Missy Hargraves, Sharon Kerr, and Randi Schatz. The Junior Chair is Kate McEntee, and Junior Co-Chairs include: Kingsley Crawford, Jenny Dwork, and Merritt Piro. This year’s Media Sponsor is Hamptons Magazine. Gregory D’Elia will be emceeing the event.
Proceeds from the event directly support the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation’s mission. Whether caring and finding homes for stray and abandoned animals to providing low cost veterinary care and dog training so that animals can remain in their home, the Southampton Animal Shelter has become a vital resource in their community. With the generous support of donors, they can continue to provide lifesaving programs and services.
Individual tickets for the gala are $1,000, with a limited amount at $500. Junior tickets (for under 35) are $300.
The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation is unique on the East End, taking in animals from all 7 villages and 18 hamlets in the Township. With its “open admissions” policy, it accepts all animals – no matter what breed, physical or medical condition, special needs, or what age. The shelter also takes in animals from neighboring towns and beyond. Shelter services are broad-based. It provides low-cost, mobile veterinary services throughout the region. Plus, it conducts educational classes in local schools on humane animal care. The Southampton Animal Shelter is the true “community” shelter on the East End.
Most significantly, the shelter’s Medical Services and the Behavior & Training program are unsurpassed. These, along with the professionalism and “match-making skills” of the Adoption Department, are the key to the shelter’s extraordinary adoption rate of 96%. Shelter staff, and its fabulous volunteers, make sure that no animal is left behind.
