At ARF Hamptons: July 2022

Animals of the Month

Sandy Cheeks: Sandy Cheeks is one of our most recent arrivals. This nine-year-old friendly kitty was one of six adult cats that came to ARF from the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. She is quite the looker with her gorgeous green eyes and her beautiful black tail! Sandy Cheeks gets along well with other cats, enjoys a good scratching post and a good scratch behind her ears. She might play coy to start, but take out a wand toy and you will see her quickly warm up. She should be an easy fit for any feline-friendly home.

Kipper: One-and-a-half-year-old lab mix Kipper is a sweet, smart boy who likes other dogs. Just like most of us, he has found the last two years really strange, and can be on the shy side when meeting new people or experiencing new things. Once you’ve earned his trust, Kipper is a complete love who is eager to please. Kipper needs a patient family who will go slow with him, but it will be worth the wait.

All ARF animals are vet checked, spayed/neutered, microchipped and up to date on all vaccines.

ARF Designer Auction Preview Party

ARF Volunteers

On Saturday, May 28th, ARF Hamptons hosted a preview cocktail party at the ARF Thrift & Treasure Shop in Sagaponack to launch the benefit designer online auction, chaired by ARF Board members Lisa McCarthy, Alex Papachristidis, and Katharine Rayner. Guests got the first look at the online auction which ran from May 28 through June 7 and featured furniture and decorative items for the home donated by longstanding friends and ARF supporters, including some of the most admired designers, artisans, and dealers in the country.

Guests from the Hamptons social and design community attended the special evening. Friends enjoyed wine donated by Kontokosta Winery and hors d’oeuvres as they got the first look at the auction items and shopped exclusive merchandise. The cocktail party also showcased beautifully arranged tablescapes, featuring handpicked décor by top designers and tastemakers David Monn, Everyday Elegance, Cathy Kincaid, Kim Seybert, and Katharine Rayner.
