The 2017 Animal Medical Center Top Dog Gala

Last night was the AMC Top Dog Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street. What an amazing night it was raising money for the Animal Medical Center and Honoring Georgina Bloomberg with The Brooke Astor Award along with 3 canine honorees who happily barked and wagged their tails much to the delight of everyone.
I have been binge watching The Crown and so it was with great interest that  I found myself in such an elegant and gorgeous space with such a well dressed celebrating crowd.
David Monn transformed the space with hanging balloons and bark topiaries that were 15 feet tall. On each table was a sculptured dog covered in silk rope that could be taken home with a donation to AMC. It was fun at the end of the night watching the center pieces finding new owners.
Mrs Kissinger looked stunning in all black. While Lisa Schiff was deep in conversation with Clive Davis her husband David was on the dance floor spinning Kathie Lee Gifford in her 6 inch heels.
Ina Garten was greeted by an eager guest who told Ina she was a big fan.
Dogs barked, people laughed and the food was delicious. Mary Hilliard and I got a table of our own and we sat and ate quickly and caught up while the guests were being served. Then we both raced out to photograph the awards and then the guests once the tables were cleared.
