What’s the one thing that can improve pretty much any party? Puppies! And there were plenty of them at the Southampton Animal Shelter’s Unconditional Love Gala, which happened this Saturday at a private residence on Gin Lane in Southampton.

Gala chair Jean Shafiroff welcomed over 300 guests to the event, which featured a dinner catered by Pinch Food Design, music played by Chris Norton’s band and puppies everywhere. All proceeds benefited the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation.

Guests included: master of ceremonies, Chuck Scarborough, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Howard Lorber, John Catsimatidis, Beth Stern, Jill Rappaport, Jean Remmel Little, Deborah Hearst, Mayor Michael Irving and his wife Ellen, Leesa Rowland, Larry Wohl, Martin Shafiroff, Sandra McConnell, Steve Bernstein, State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright and Julie Ratner.
