And  the event was jam-parked!

Gathering at Beacon Rock, with its breathtaking views of Narragansett Bay and Fort Adams, supporters of the Potter League'“Yappy Hour” gathered for a vertiginous party and fundraiser benefiting the League’s care and adoption services for animals.  Guests were greeted by hostess Bekki Schenker and her dog Gatsby, both blondes!

New Executive Director   of The Potter League, Brad Shear, spoke to the assembled guests about the League’s mission, introduced by Joan Johnson-Freese.  A call for donations to the League was answered, by many bids from generous guests, the Nuala Pell Animal Care Fund, and general expenses received three bids of $5,000 each from generous attendees.

A pet up for adoption, the adorable black nine- month old Bear, who needs hip surgery, was introduced  and cheered, his expenses met.

 

The gracious dining room


Delicious hors d’oeuvres were served in the dining room, and guests lounged in the lovely living room  and gathered around the pool. 

Seen were co-host Brian Cunha, Anne Hamilton, Rene Cohen, Ann Mencoff,  Happy van Beuren, Holly Bannister, Jim Moore, Carolyn DuPont, Lisa and Ronald Oliver, Robert and Pamela Chapman, DeDe Wilsey and David Thalmann.
