HUCK and Ellen Scarborough along with Kristen and Richard Thompson co-chaired the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons annual Chow Chow Bow Wow benefit at their residence in Southampton, raising more that $250,000 for the no-kill shelter.
The NBC anchorman and his wife welcomed over 300 guests who came to honor Lisa and Brian McCarthy's adopted Chow Katrina, a survivor of the New Orleans hurricane.
ARF supporters at the party included Muriel Siebert, Sandra McConnell, Betty and Virgil Sherrill, Katharina Otto Bernstein, Charlene and James Nederlander, Whitney and James Fairchild, Anait Bian, Jason Grant, Elaine Sargent, Dr. Peter Theodorou, Ralph Destino Jr., Christopher Robbins, Plum TV host Alison Chace, Bentley Meeker, and fashion designer Jackie Rogers who hosted ARF's kickoff party and created signature dog collars to benefit the worthy animal cause.
In a bow to the Chinese year of the dog, Chick played the harmonica while his dog, Oliver, howled in tune.
ARF board member Frances Hayward and her rescued Shepherd Amigo presented Katrina and the McCarthy family with the Ambassador of Good Will Award.
In October 2005, Hayward and a team of ARF volunteers brought back Katrina and dozens of other animals left homeless by the hurricane to their shelter in Wainscott.
