Kidstock: A concert to raise awareness for Pets in Need!

What a magical day! Young fans converged on Belleayre Mountain to celebrate music and fun all for the good of animals in the community.  Sponsored by Gidget Gormley’s favorite non-profit “Friends of Snuffy” the event sponsored all sorts of fun including face-painting, games, music by School of Rock and Uncle Rock and a musical woodland journey where kids encountered rock and roll legends (impersonated by actors) in a magical walk through the grounds of Belleayre!  Click here to see amazing photos of that day by Franz Edlinger

CANINE STAR FROM SEX AND THE CITY MOVIE AT SUPER PET EXPO

 

Suffern, NY, October 31, 2008 –Gidget, the scene-stealing New Yorkie who played Baby, Samantha’s dog in this summer’s Sex and the City movie, will appear at two upcoming Super Pet Expo’s.  Super Pet Expo is a holiday shopping extravaganza and animal lover’s dream.

 

“Meet and Greet” Gidget on November 8 noon to 4 PM in Suffern, NY at Rockland Community College and November 15 noon to 4 PM at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center at Raritan Center, Edison, NJ.  Bring your camera.  Take a picture with Gidget and receive Gidget’s custom Pawtograph for a small donation.  Have fun, glam it up with Gidget, dress-up in fabulous sun glasses and boas (provided) so you can feel like a movie star for your photo opt!  Gidget’s person, Mary, will be happy to delight you with behind the scene movie Tails and, if we are lucky, Gidget may do a few tricks for us including the special trick she did in the movie!  Proceeds will benefit Tails of Hope Foundation which helps save the lives of pets diagnosed with treatable cancers.

 

As a melanoma cancer survivor, Gidget is featured in Tails of Hope Foundation’s new comparative medicine campaign, called “Gidget for Good™” and serves as Tails of Hope’s “Spokes Star” and “Dog of Hope”. 

 

Comparative medicine uses knowledge gained from the treatment of cancer in companion animals and people to help advance medicine for the good of both species. “Tails of Hope is a collaborative, pioneering effort among general and specialty veterinarians, experts in human medicine, and the public, each of whose roles is critical to making progress in combating dreaded diseases in both pets and people,” says Tails of Hope’s founding veterinarian Dr. Michele Steffey. “We invite you to join us in our efforts, so that together we can bring hope to companion animals and people suffering from these life-threatening diseases and to the families who love them.”

 

Gidget’s Super Pet appearances are being sponsored by Citizens Bank, Doggyspace, Friends of Snuffy, Super pet Expo and Words and Pictures.

MACY’S SPONSORS BENEFIT FOR TAILS OF HOPE FOUNDATION

 

Gidget, the scene-stealing New Yorkie who played Baby, Samantha’s dog in this summer’s Sex and the City movie, will appear at Macy’s in Palisades Center Mall on Saturday, September 20th. Her visit will be part of a benefit shopping day for Tails of Hope Foundation, where she serves as the “Dog of Hope.”
In honor of Gidget’s visit, donations from 20% discount tickets for that day will be donated to Tails of Hope’s comparative medicine campaign and Sponsor-a-PetSM program. The foundation’s search for cures for veterinary disease and oncology often applies to cures for human disease and oncology—for the good of all.
Besides being an actress, Gidget herself is a melanoma survivor. She will be appearing in a fashion show at 2:30 p.m. at Macy’s on Saturday, September 20th, and to meet and greet dog fans and supporters of comparative medicine immediately afterwards. Tails of Hope will have a crafts table at Macy’s from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., with pet-themed tote bags for kids to decorate and dog treats donated by DOGSWELL®.

As a cancer survivor, Gidget is featured in a new campaign, called “Gidget for Good™” for Tails of Hope, created by Words and Pictures, an advertising agency in Park Ridge, NJ. “We are very excited to play a role in a campaign that will benefit the well-being of pets as well as people,” according to Rhonda Smith, Partner and Creative Director of Words and Pictures. “We hope our creative contributions will motivate and inspire people to support this important, worthy cause.”

We can’t let this one out of the bag, (yet) but Gidget is in talks to do some amazing promotional work for Tails of Hope Foundation and her charity, Friends of Snuffy with a special Retail Partner!  Gidget’s movie role as Samantha’s dog in the film “Sex and the City” has put her in a unique position to help other dogs in need and to also raise awareness about canine cancer and treatment. This is the best use of celebrity that we can think of! Thanks, Gidget!

What a wonderful evening! Gidget worked the Red Carpet for “Paws for Style“, a non-profit  event that donates 100 percent of the proceeds to the Humane Society of New York.  She was in fabulous company hanging with Nikki Blonsky, Lauren Conrad, Rumer Willis, Nicky Hilton, Cornelia Guest, Robert Verdi and their puppies raising money for dogs in need.  The event was organized by Wendy Diamond, editorial director of Animal Fair Magazine and a  judge on the CBS television show “Greatest American Dog.” 

PS: The outfit Gidget is wearing was made especially for her wardrobe in the film “Sex and the City” by For Pets Only, the upscale pet clothing company based in Italy.
