On Thursday, October 12, I enjoyed attending the ASPCA’s Young Friend’s “Lucky Dog” Benefit at the IAC HQ building. The event took place on the ground level, which featured a large space with two bars. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeurves, music by DJ Chachi and a silent auction with included tons of great prizes. The event is held every year to raise awareness for young professionals to make a difference in the lives of animals. It is in support of ASPCA’s mission to provide means of prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States. This year’s benefit was sponsored by Bank of America, The Slater Foundation, Barrymore Wines and The Rose Foundation.
