Cruise the East River in Style, Benefit Animals

Friends of Animal Rescue cruise
C'mon, how can anyone resist an invitation that looks like this?

If you’re cruising down the East River at sunset on a luxury yacht while sipping a cocktail, you must be some sort of celebrity or rich investment banker, right? Not necessarily. In fact, you could just be a really great person with a soft spot for homeless animals.

On Tuesday, June 22, Friends of Animal Rescue (FOAR) is hosting a charity sunset cruise from 7-10 PM aboard the beautiful 145-ft. luxury Atlantis yacht. The cruise boards at the Water Club (East River at 30th Street) and offers attendees, cocktails, a buffet dinner, a silent auction, breathtaking views… and peace of mind in knowing that their good time benefits a good cause: pets in need of a little shelter and a lot of love. And it’s all for the bargain price of $100 per ticket (in advance; tickets on the boat are $120) — not a bad deal considering how much peace of mind goes for on the black market these days.

All proceeds go to FOAR, a registered 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization that provides funds to rescue groups and individuals — including veterinarians, dog walkers, medical boarding facilities and pet supply stores — that help save homeless and abandoned animals.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s not every day one gets the opportunity to party like Brangelina for an evening and simultaneously help some cute and cuddly little critters.
