Pups play poker for City Critters | thepupdiary.com

Toyota of Manhattan turned their second-floor showroom floor into a poker parlor last night for the second annual Ante up for Animals benefit with Bulldog Poker Events. We strolled over in our Jeep to see what it was all about.

We were greeted by a cute kitten from City Critters. The little tyke was looking for a home. Event proceeds were donated to City Critters to help them with their mission to find loving homes for cats and kittens abandoned in New York City, so hopefully this beauty will go home soon. Many City Critter adoptable cats stay at a local Petco and PetSmart while they search for homes. The organization also has a network of foster homes and volunteers.

Great prizes (a SCION car lease, a cruise, and more) were at stake, so folks were serious about the Poker. We were happy to check out the vendors, enjoy the music, chat with friends, and bid on raffle prizes.  We’re not sure if anyone did win the car since we left before the end of the tournament, but everyone seemed to have a great time.  Or maybe that was partly due to the flowing vodka and tequilla drinks.  BOL!

We did find out that several guests had expressed an interest in the cute kitten, so hopefully she will have a forever home soon!  Thanks to Dana from Whitegate PR for organizing a fun and philanthropic evening!  Can’t wait for the next one!
