Wow! This year’s Yappy Hour broke records for attendance and fundraising for the 20-year event. Guests gathered at ‘The Waves’ on Ledge Road where they met animals available for adoption at the Potter League and supported the organization’s work by joining in for a ‘Paw Raise’ to support the Nuala Pell Animal Care Fund.
The Nuala Pell Animal Care Fund ensures that homeless animals receive everything from basic care to treatment for serious medical issues. Thanks to these generous donors the thousands of animals that walk through our doors every day will continue to receive veterinary care, surgery, extensive rehabilitation, and life-saving medications often required before they can be placed in a loving home.
We cannot thank our generous hosts, Marc Lewinstein, Xana O’Neil, and the guest of honor Maalouf, who opened their home to fellow animal lovers enough. Their generosity, love and kindness for the Potter League and our animals is immensely appreciated.
We would also like to thank our Presenting Sponsor, Randal W. Poirier, ChFC, Financial Planner of Independence Financial Partners, our board of directors, our “Party Animals” committee, our volunteers & staff, and our in-kind sponsors Peak Event Services, Glorious Affairs Boutique Catering and Event Design, Wild Season Florals, Photography by Jessica Pohl, Lainey Dionne (musician), and Perfection Valet Parking for never-ending support and kindness.
We hope that you all had an incredible evening as we did. We were so grateful to be able to gather and see so many of our generous and wonderful friends. Thank you so much for making Yappy Hour a howling success!
