Top Dog Gala

2022 Top Dog Gala

On Tuesday, December 13, 2022, the Schwarzman Animal Medical Center hosted its Top Dog Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street. We are proud to honor Stephen and Christine Schwarzman with the Top Dog Award in recognition of their unprecedented contribution to our Gift of Love capital campaign and their fervent belief in the human-animal bond. Proceeds from Top Dog, our preeminent annual fundraising event, enable us to pursue all aspects of our non-profit mission—education, research, and the provision of compassionate, collaborative care for animals in need.

Online ticket sales have now closed. For information about tickets, please call Kristin Hokoyama at 212-329-8662.
