The Humane Society of the United States presents To the Rescue! New York to benefit and celebrate the organization’s animal rescue efforts.

Responsible for saving and rehabilitating thousands of animals each year, The HSUS travels across the country to help animals in need from puppy mills, dog fighting, neglect and natural disasters. The event is chaired by Howard Berk and is supported by HSUS’ Friends of Finn. Guests will enjoy a three-course vegan meal prepared by Candle 79 and Cipriani, a live auction and entertainment.

Hosted by Ali Wentworth, and with entertainment from Christina Grimmie, the event will honor Anjelica Huston with the Humanitarian of the Year Award, Heineken with the Corporate Consciousness Award and Jennifer and Alan Fournier and family with the Compassion in Action Award.

Expected to attend are Boomer, (formerly Snowball, who was rescued from South Korea’s dog meat trade), Prince Lorenzo Borghese (ABC’s The Bachelor), Abigail Breslin (Fox’s Scream Queens), David Mazouz (The CW’s Gotham), Wayne Pacelle (HSUS president and CEO), Kick Kennedy (actress), Allie Rizzo (model), Ariana Rockefeller (designer), Katie Sturino and @ToastMeetsWorld (Instagram star), Jack Welch (former CEO of GE and author), Suzy Welch (former editor-in-chief of the Harvard Business Review and author), and more to be announced.
