The ASPCA’s Annual Young Friends Benefit is an opportunity for a new generation of animal advocates to show their support for the ASPCA’s mission and help animals in need across the country.
This annual benefit attracts 500 to 600 of New York’s upwardly mobile young professionals. Notable participants have included celebrities, industry leaders, sports figures and NYC tastemakers, including Josh Lucas, Katie Lee Joel, Brooklyn Decker, Lake Bell, Dylan Lauren, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Georgina Bloomberg, Maria Menounos and Lorenzo Borghese.
The 2013 Annual Young Friends Benefit, Copycat, was held on Thursday, October 17, at the IAC headquarters in Chelsea. The benefit featured cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, music by DJ Kiss, a silent auction and special appearances by some of our adoptable animals in need of loving homes. A screening of The Dog Walk, a new short film from Ralph Lauren, in honor of Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, was also featured at the event.
Many thanks to all the attendees and our sponsors:
