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®.
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.”
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.”
