Dog lovers: I'm honored to have been invited to participate in this wonderful fundraising event for Animal Aid USA. Founded by Prince Lorenzo Borghese, Animal Aid USA relocates animals in kill-shelters to loving homes through its large network of rescue groups and volunteers. I have friends who volunteer for this group (i.e. the fabulous Jen Bush) and believe me, they work hard. Each weekend they travel to remote areas in the US and lovingly rescue hundreds of dogs. Read about them here http://animalaidusa.org/about/mission-statement/
Anyway, this event will basically be a hip NYC party, featuring books, music, authors, princes, and dogs.
a short author Q&A moderated by Ms. Bush, I'll be performing covers
of Pete Townshend's song "Sleeping Dog" and Heart's "Dog and Butterfly"
with songstress Jen Bush. Jen will be singing some songs as well. I
believe "Hound Dog" by Elvis (duh) and "I Love My Dog" by Cat Stevens
are on the list.
You might know Lorenzo as "The Bachelor." We in the
animal rescue world know him as a great champion of animals with a big
and generous heart. By coming and supporting Lorenzo's foundation, you
are DIRECTLY saving the lives of animals in need.
magazines and free copies of the acclaimed memoir "Rex and the City,"
--plus big hugs of gratitude - will be given to the first 60 attendees.

The facebook copy reads:
us for a tail wagging evening of chat, song and fun with writer,
singer, editor of BARK Magazine and dog lover extraordinaire, LEE
HARRINGTON! The evening will begin with a lighthearted interview, then I
will join Lee for a short musical performance and the evening will end
with a meet and greet and book signing. Did I mention that the first 60
people will receive a copy of Lee's book, Rex and the City? Well, you
will and you can even have some wine and light refreshments. Lee lives 2
hours away and graciously agreed to give her time to this fundraiser to
help animals in need. Let's make it a nice showing for her. Tickets
must be purchased in advance using this link:
