The event will be hosted in the hotel’s retail space on West 63rd Street from 11am to 4pm and is free and open to the public. Several shelter dogs currently in need of homes for the holidays will be in attendance.
Donations will be accepted from visitors, and the photos will be on sale for $50 each. Proceeds directly benefit AC&C. The exhibition will kick off tonight with an invite-only opening night reception of VIPs and tastemakers. Champagne will be generously provided by Cliffton Dry.
Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) is one of the largest animal welfare organizations in the country, taking in approximately 30,000 animals each year. AC&C is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that rescues, cares for and finds loving homes for animals throughout the five boroughs. AC&C is an open-admissions organization, which means it never turns away any homeless, abandoned, injured or sick animal in need of help, including cats, dogs, rabbits, small mammals, reptiles, birds, farm animals and wildlife. It is the only organization in NYC with this unique responsibility. Visit www.nycacc.org for more information, and follow AC&C at facebook.com/NYCACC and @NYCACC.
