On Tuesday, December 17th, Animal Fair hosted their 10th Annual Toys for Dogs Holiday Benefit at XL NightClub. The festive event drew together more than 100 people who raised over $10, 000 for The Humane Society of New York. Guests included EXTRA’s A.J. Calloway, The Godfather’s Gianni Russo, Olympic Medalist, Tim Morehouse, The Humane Society of New York’s Ann Marie Karish and 50 of the most adorable pets dressed up in holiday attire.

Toys were brought to be donated to shelter animals. The Humane Society of New York had some of their rescued dogs in attendance for people to mingle with at the event. The party goers enjoyed Bootlegger Vodka Peppermint Muttinis by DR. Mixologist Darryl Robinson, photos with Santa and a holiday music set by DJ June D. In addition, there was a wonderful performance by Jeanne Bresciani and the Isadora Duncan International Institute’s dancers.
