The ASPCA will be holding their 14th Annual black-tie Bergh Ball on Thursday, April 14, 2011 at NYC’s The Plaza Hotel. This celebrity-filled event draws a passionate crowd of animal lovers and features a dinner, dance and auction to support of ASPCA’s mission of preventing cruelty to animals throughout the United States. The Bergh Ball raised over $1 Million in 2010 for the ASPCA. And, this is really spectacular, the Empire State Building will be lit up in orange the night of April 14th in honor of the ASPCA!
