The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) honored Board Member and supporter Linda Lloyd Lambert at the 20th annual ASPCA Bergh Ball last night at The Plaza Hotel (770 Fifth Ave.). Acclaimed fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi served as Master of Ceremonies, and Samantha Ronson kept the crowd dancing throughout the evening.
The evening’s celebration also premiered the ASPCA After Dark party, a cocktail event following the Bergh Ball, which featured music by The Misshapes and a silent auction for young professional supporters of the ASPCA. Actress and star of Freeform’s hit show “Pretty Little Liars” Lucy Hale hosted the event. Notables on the After Dark orange carpet include ZZ Ward, Leigh Lezark, Bregje Heinen, Jerrod Niemann, Kimiko Glenn and Lo Bosworth. The After Dark event was supported by Bandier and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and décor was provided by David Beahm Experiences.
“I was honored when I was asked to be the host of [the ASPCA After Dark] event. It’s a room full of animal lovers – there’s no better place to be,” said Hale at the ASPCA After Dark party. “I’ve always been an animal lover. I grew up with all sorts of pets – from turtles to hermit crabs, to fish, to a cat, to dogs – so I sort of grew up with that love.”
