YORK has never been such a dog-gone friendly town – especially if
you’re a fuzzy, four-legged creature.
The posh Pierre Hotel,
which usually opens its ballroom doors to royalty and celebrities,
entertained quite a “pedigreed” crowd, as Bide-A-Wee, one of the
country’s oldest humane organizations, celebrated its hundredth
The Have-A-Heart Centennial
Dinner Dance honored long time supporters Jerry and Elaine
Orbach and Fox TV’S John Roland.
The gala also paid special
tribute to hero animals, rescue dogs and pet therapy companions who
were among the attendees. The
cocktail reception was packed with animal lovers and their pets –
many dressed in evening wear and jewels to rival their human
Oscar winner Celeste
Holm sipped a glass of wine with one hand while treating new
canine pal Buster to some special doggie hors d’ouevres prepared
by the Pierre chefs!
The goodie bags distributed
at the party’s finale were a doggie-delight: silver collar charms,
doggie deodorant, skin care products, plush toys, and for madam
owner enameled Estee Lauder compacts in the shapes of cute little
canines and felines courtesy of Lauder honcho Sue Grundfest.
