An outstanding time was had by all at 'Stand Up for the Troops' presented by one of my charities: Stand for the Troops. The evening of comedy featured Lewis Black in the presence of Major General John Batiste (ret) and SFTT co-founder Eilhys England Hackworth. It was a huge success not only raising the profile of SFTT, but also funds and support.
Bridgehampton, NY. September 8, 2011. I attended the Hampton Classic Horse Show and once again it was a great success, despite a delayed start due to Hurricane Irene.
Not only have millions of people been impacted by the hurricane, but many animals as well. Sadly, as a consequence, the Hampton Classic Adoption Day in partnership with the ASPCA (I'm a member of the board) was cancelled. The event was a huge success last year: every animal brought to the show was adopted and we had hoped for the same this year. But all is not lost, the First Annual Hampton Classic virtual adoption month, also in partnership with the ASPCA, is off the ground.
