On Friday, August 11th, our Third Annual Trunks of Love Gala was held at Dopo La Spiaggia East Hampton. That night, nearly 275 of the Hamptons' art, business and cultural luminaries came together to do something truly wondrous: raise the funds to support Veterinarians International's community programs.
All told, this unforgettable evening raised $170,000. Thank you to our sponsors and donors for helping us get closer to our mission of healthy, sustainable communities through their generous support.
2017 Gala accomplishments:
1. The purchase of an animal ambulance that now serves as an emergency response vehicle and trailer for animals affected by natural disasters in Chile
2. Delivery of life-saving medications for 5 baby elephants infected with the fatal EEHV disease (each baby costs ~$15 000 to treat)
3. Stockpiling of medications and supplies for 200 elephants in the Surin Elephant Kingdom, Thailand
