Francis Battista, Co-Founder of Best Friends Animal Society, hosted a cocktail reception honoring Today Show Correspondent and animal crusader Jill Rappaport. The event, to benefit Friends of Animal Rescue, was held at Peter Tunney Gallery on Crosby Street. Displayed on the walls, was a stunning exhibit of Robert Dutesco’s photographic series: “The Wild Horses of Sable Island.”
Rappaport had focused on entertainment news for 17 years, but instead of celebrities, her stories now focus on animal issues. "My heart, my passion, has always been my animals," she says. "Doing animal welfare stories, about medical advancements in animal cancer, adoption, rescue is what I love."  She is also an author, and two of her books, Jack & Jill: The Miracle Dog with a Happy Tail to Tell and 500 Cats, were available at the event.
Among the guests enjoying delicious hors d’oeuvres by Swifty’s Catering were Betsy Goldman, President of Animal Rescue, Blaine and Robert Caravaggi, Jane Hoffman, Head of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC Animals, Tazz Latifi, interior designer Jennifer Bradford Davis, Pat Attoe, David Lacey, Wendy Diamond, Monica Swendsierd, Jason Grant, Allison Utsch, Caryn Zucker, Mara and Anna Millich, Jay Jolly, Christine Hahn, Howard Bellin and Kandis Koustenis, Roger Webster, Katy Hansen, Robert Nathan, Lisa Sposato, Dylan Davis, Nancy Clark and Chris Dewey, Mickey and Peter Bickford, Kim Wiegard, Patrick Kilkullen, Libby Freidman, Antonio Chitatti, Ann Fredlin, Jennifer Coffey, Kial and Laine Blumenkopf, Michael Leofle, Lee Fryd, Marcy Roth, Dana Lutt, Lisa Sposato and Kelly Rubin. Joe Panz and Big Ant of Rescue Ink, a gang of macho motorcycle-riding tough guys who have bonded together to fight animal cruelty, stopped by to support the cause.
Friends of Animal Rescue was created as a direct response to the growing need of individuals and rescue groups who may not have access to large grants or other financial aid. They provide funds for medical treatments, boarding, transportation, and other animal emergencies. By making payments directly to veterinarians, medical boarding facilities, dog walkers, pet supply stores and more, they can support smaller rescue efforts. Individuals can make a difference. At the event, over $25,000 was raised to help keep the dream alive.
