The Wild at Heart Gala, a benefit for Animal and Human Health by Veterinarians International will give attendees a night of living wild at heart, while funding Veterinarians International’s programs that advocate for humane treatment and care of animals, and help build capacity for better animal care and healthy living conditions in communities around the world to improve quality of life, reduce suffering, and mitigate the potential for disease contraction and transmission. Over 60% of human infectious diseases come from animals.
Attendees will be greeted with a cocktail reception hosted by Christie Brinkley and Belissima organic sparkling wine, then move into the dining room for a nourishing, sustainably sourced gourmet meal. Next on to dancing courtesy of DJ Alexandra Richards, and cap off the evening with a luxe beach bonfire featuring this year’s top rated whiskey and the finest cigars, courtesy of Davidoff of Geneva. All set against the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club, nestled on the beach with unobstructed ocean views. Moments from the evening will be captured for guests by The Collective You.
