Frances Hayward Hosted her "Art For Animals" Dinner
In Honor of Russell Simmons
& HSUS President Wayne Pacelle
at Grey Gardens on July 27, 2008

BeKind founder Frances Hayward welcomed guests into her home and out of the torrential rain for her Art For Animals' dinner in honor of Russell Simmons, CEO of Rush Philanthropic, and Wayne Pacelle, President of the Humane Society of the US at Grey Gardens in East Hampton on Sunday, July 27th. Hayward set up a sumptuous vegan buffet for her animal-loving guests who included Frank and Victoria Wyman, Patrick and Elisabeth Gerschel, Richard and Isabelle Furlaud, Chuck and Cathy Gropper, veterinarians Robin Brenner and Jay Kuhlman, stunner Beth Ostrosky
(sans fiancé Howard Stern), HSUS's Samantha Haas and HSNY's  Sandra Defeo,
who all weathered the storm to come show their support.

Upon entering, guests including Eva Beale (whose husband Bouvier is a direct descendant of the Beale family), Lionel Larner, Campion and Tatianna Platt, Jackie and Anya Robertson, Sharon Sondes and Geoffrey Thomas, interior
designers Tony Ingrao, Randy Kemper and Cynthia Clift, designers Michael Mione and Jackie Rogers, lighting master Bentley Meeker and ARF's Sara Davisson were greeted by a large painting of Frances¹ beloved Shepherd-mix
Amigo, the inspiration for her Foundation, who she just lost to cancer this year.

Prominently featured in the foyer was a 12 X 9 oil Masonite painting of an endearing bunny entitled The Hutch, donated by famed American artist Hunt Slonem, whose brother Jeffrey Slonim and his wife Fiona admired upon entering. The beautiful dark carved wood framed artwork, valued at $3,800,
will be up for auction online with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to helping animals. Bidding will begin August 1, 2008 online at the Humane Society of New York¹s web site


http://www.hsny.org> )and on eBay, and will continue through September 1, 2008. Sharon Patrick took initiative and placed the first $1,000 bid, but Liz Fondaras, attorney Salvatore Strazzullo, who attended with his wife Jodie Fanelli and her twin Diane, art aficionado Michele Gerber Klein and
Hunt Slonem collector Wendy Diamond, host of CBS Greatest American Dog, all expressed interest in the piece.

In the beautifully decorated main room Dr. Robert Schwalbe and his wife Janie chatted with R. Couri Hay, Joan McGivern and James Oxnam about his new book Sixty, Sexy, and Successful,  and his reading at East End Books that
Friday. Anne Dexter-Jones was showing off her new bracelet designs to a group of guests and admitted she had named the line after herself as Cartier was already taken! Russell Simmons' new girlfriend Paige Butcher, dressed casually in a sweatshirt with skinny jeans, mingled with Vera and
Donald Blinkin and Debbie Bancroft and her young daughter Serena, who is already a big animal fan!

While supporters dined on an extensive buffet menu, Wayne, Russell and Frances took a few moments to thank everyone for coming out to support such a worthwhile cause despite the raging weather. While Pacelle addressed animal farming and the HSUS's new campaign to stop livestock, such as
cows, chickens and pigs, from being confined so tightly that they are unable to walk, even move, Simmons addressed cruelty to animals in general. The music mogul said that it is criminal the way some people treat animals and to better humanity, we need to respect all living creatures and allow them their dignity. Frances concluded the short dialogue by adding that there is a connection between art and animals, and really their work together is sure to benefit all living creatures. The hostess concluded the speaking by encouraging everyone to help any way they can, from adoption to volunteering, to donating time, products or funds, as animals cannot fend
for themselves and need any help we can give.

This past year, Hayward, Simmons and Pacelle worked together on different initiatives to raise awareness and funds for animals, including their national Public Service Announcement to stop dog fighting and the horrific
practice of dog baiting. The party allowed the dynamic trio the opportunity to exchange new ideas while relaxing with friends and supporters. Frances¹ next trip will be to New Orleans for the Pet Memorial, which honors all thepets lost in Hurricane Katrina, on August 29th.
