Beth Stern & Friends “Bash for the Bulldogs” For Long Island Bulldog Rescues-2016

Animal advocates Beth Stern, actress and wife of radio legend Howard Stern; rapper, actor, reality TV star Ice-T and wife Coco Austin; Talk Stoop Host Cat Greenleaf; Jason B. Hurwitz, producer of The Dog Wedding; and best-selling author Jill Rappaport are among the VIPs that will appear on the Red Carpet on Monday, December 12th at The London NYC Hotel, to help the ground-breaking, New York-based Long Island Bulldog Rescue (LIBR) raise urgently needed funds and help, heal and home the skyrocketing number of loving English Bulldogs in desperate need of their forever families.

A live online Auction will be filled with fabulous Holiday gift items such as Hamilton on Broadway Orchestra Tickets, iPhone SE, Baccarat Crystal Dog, Jacob & Co. Diamond Watch, Chanel Lace Sunglasses, Stay at Resorts Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, Michael Kors Rosegold Watch, Ralph Lauren Polo Gift Set, NY Rangers Tickets, Marc Tetro Dog Print, and much, much more!

The event includes live jazz music, buffet dinner, cocktails and wine donated by Chatham Imports.  Sponsors include Bulldog Gin, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, novelist Patricia Cornwell and Staci Gruber, The RTA Store and The Honest Kitchen.

WHY NOW?  LIBR founder Laurette Richin says, “It is the height of the Holiday Abandonment Season — when people leave puppies, injured and senior dogs to attend this year’s parties or go on vacation.  Also, when they are forced to surrender them because of expensive health costs and other circumstances that make it impossible for them to keep their dogs — LIBR responds NOW.”

Whether abandoned as impulsively as they are purchased, or surrendered by heartbroken families, these loving dogs face imminent death.  LIBR can only save as many as they can afford to help, heal and home.

Exclusive Interview with Sheynnis Palacios Miss Universe -2023

Sheynnis Palacios is a 23-year-old mental health advocate and audiovisual producer from Managua, Nicaragua. She usually prefers to be behind the camera, but she’s come out of the wings because she believes in finding solutions for as many of the world’s problems as she can.

As a problem-solving kind of person, she put herself through the communications program at her university by working in her mom’s snack business.

When the business faltered in an economic crisis, her mother migrated north to find a better job, and she became the economic and emotional support for her grandmother and young brother. Her cause this year will be mental health, which stems from her own experiences with anxiety.

Coming from a country where this issue is rarely addressed, she started an accessible initiative called “Understand Your Mind,” in which she interviews a specialist on emotional care in her television segments.

She has also produced events and other audiovisual projects on this theme. Her goal in life is to work in the service of humanity, by running a newsroom and producing content and commercials for international brands.

In her spare time, she rescues cats and dogs, and loves a good mental game and puzzle. Miss Nicaragua Sheynnis Palacios won the Miss Universe competition late Saturday night in El Salvador, the first to wear the crown from her country.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Miss Universe 2023, Sheynnis Palacios at the Empire State Building New York city on the 86th floor. See her exclusive interview in our World Liberty TV , Fashion Channels by clicking here.

Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade-2023

BY: Adal Hussain, Chief Editor,  Thompkins Square Park NYC Oct 21st 2023

In addition to the traditional parade activities, an “experiential area” will be added this year across from the parade route on Avenue B and 7th St. with activities, services and sample stations.

The event is already the largest Halloween dog costume contest in NYC—and perhaps even in the world—and now it’ll be bigger than ever before.

The Tompkins Square Park Dog Run announced the news on Instagram this morning, writing “Keep working on those costumes…THE PARADE! IS! BACK! ON!

Their announcement thanked sponsor Get Joy, a local dog wellness startup, for saving the parade. Parade leaders also thanked Mayor Eric Adams and Councilwoman Carolina Rivera “for quickly jumping into action.”

For more than three decades the Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade has been a tradition welcoming hundreds of dogs in adorable outfits.

“It’s a celebration of joy, creativity and the unbreakable bond between humans and their four-legged best friends,” Fern Watt, dog author and communications officer of the Tompkins Square Park Dog Run, said in a press release.

“It’s basically the Met Gala for the Canine Community. We’ve been overcome by the amazing display of support from our community, so call the pup-arazzi: the show will go on!”

Watt will serve as a judge for the event, alongside Get Joy founder/CEO Tom Arrix, Get Joy’s Veterinary Advisor Dr. Brett Levitzke of VERG Brooklyn, and others.

Expect incredible prizes for winners of various costume contest categories, including best in show, people’s choice, most creative and more.

Year after year, the canine costumes prove remarkably elaborate and conceptual, so get creative. Some of our favorite looks from past years include Phantom of the Opera, Starbarks, and even an NYC garbage can. The ingenuity knows no bounds.

This isn’t the first time the parade has faced cancellation, by the way. Amid the pandemic in 2020, the parade paused, but it came roaring back in 2021.

What started as a small gathering among friends has ballooned into a cornerstone of New York City’s Halloween season, drawing thousands of spectators to the East Village to marvel, coo and laugh at creations that somehow become more elaborate every year.

When everything runs smoothly, Garrett Russo, who created the event and organized it for nearly 30 years, said the parade can raise more than $50,000 for the Tompkins Square Park dog run, where dogs can run around off-leash in a gated area. It was the city’s first.

The money goes toward resurfacing the dog park and regular maintenance, and many of the city’s dog parks have arrangements with private groups to take care of such areas.

Thousands of people attended the 2023 Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade-2023, see more in our World Liberty TV, Political Channels by clicking here.
