The event will be hosted by “Mr. Staten Island” himself, Vincent Medugno, and the lovely Priscilla Mennella of the Oxygen Network’s “Bad Girls Club”. The star of VH1's "Mob Wives" and "Miami Monkey", Angela "Big Ang" Raiola, will do a meet and greet at the event to support the cause. Pop and dance artist Reina, the “Queen of Dance Music,” known for her Billboard hits will perform, as well as recording artist and activist Lori Michaels, another Billboard artist, who will perform her single, “Unconditionally” live at the event in honor of the unconditional love a rescued animal brings into our lives. Louie’s Legacy is a non-profit animal rescue with locations in Staten Island, NY and Cincinnati, OH that specializes in rescuing, rehabilitating, sterilizing and rehoming pets into loving, responsible homes. The Blue Gala is the rescue’s only large gala of the year and funds raised are used to support the continuation of the organization’s many programs in the community. Your support means more animal lives saved through the New York Metropolitan Area and beyond. One year ago, when Hurricane Sandy struck, Louie’s Legacy’s Ohio and New York locations collaborated to acquire and deliver over 90 skids of cat and dog food and supplies for distribution in the Staten Island and Jersey Shore communities. It was one of the largest pet food distributions in the area. Their work was followed by reporters from MSNBC, PIX 11 and the Staten Island Advance. Also of note, in 2013, the rescue has surpassed 1,000 animals saved in the course of one year. Each year since its inception in 2009, the group’s annual total of rescued animals reaches near, but hasn’t broken the 1,000 animal mark. President and Founder, Emily Gear, who spends part of her time in Cincinnati and part of her time in Staten Island, attributes these accomplishments to the many volunteers and growing staff at the rescue. “We’ve been given the opportunity to grow in ways I never envisioned four years ago. Without the incredible people who have been attracted to our cause in both New York and Ohio, there is no way we could have served our community in the way that we did after Sandy, nor could we have saved as many pets as we do throughout the year.” Additionally, volunteer Stacey Maida of Bayonne, NJ will be honored at the event, receiving the second-ever Louie’s Legacy “True Blue Award in Volunteering”. Stacey has been with the rescue for roughly a year and a half, and in that time, she has played a significant role in the growth of the organization in the NYC area. She has served in a fully volunteer capacity as "Foster Coordinator", but also fosters animals herself, transports, runs adoption events, helps with fundraising and literally any other needs that arise. She is the right hand of the NYC Coordinator, to whom she has been a godsend. Stacey handles the extreme pressure of her volunteer position with grace and poise, and balances its constant needs with a full-time job and her own pets and family. She says, "I do this because I feel this is something I was truly meant to do." Tickets to the Blue Gala include dinner, open bar, appetizers, dessert, performances, mingling with the celebrities, dancing, a silent auction, raffles, special guest admission to the after party at Above and more. Silent auction items include vacation getaway for two, a Bon Jovi Drumhead, Lady Gaga sheet music, a pink limited edition guitar autographed by Taylor Swift, an original one-of-a-kind Spiderman comic sketch made especially for Louie's Legacy by Don Perlin and more. Tickets are $90 per person, $170 per couple and $850 per table of 10. If you plan to party at the gala, The Hilton is offering discounted room rates.
