Desires by Mikolay invites the animal lovers in the community, and their furry friends, to a unique opportunity to do some good this holiday season. On Thursday, December 20th from 5-8pm, Desires by Mikolay will be hosting a Charity Shopping Cocktail Event benefitting Pets Alive Westchester, a local no-kill animal sanctuary.
Tara and Scott Mikolay are truly passionate about philanthropy and, as the owners of three rescue dogs, this cause is especially meaningful. “Our impact must be greater than our entrepreneurship,” Tara says of their charity work. Scott adds, “Each step for Desires by Mikolay is also an opportunity to give back to our world, raise awareness about critical issues, and alleviate suffering. Together with our wonderful community of friends and supporters, we hope to continue doing just that.” And that community has come through to support this important event. Mount Kisco’s Wine Enthusiast and Chappaqua’s Gail Patrick's Cafe have graciously donated all the wine and food for the evening. Fellow jeweler Alex Woo, known for her sleek and sophisticated pendants, contributed an adorably fitting paw print necklace for raffle in which 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Pets Alive.
In addition, the event has received endorsement, and an RSVP, from singer Rob Thomas and his wife Marisol of the Sidewalk Angels Foundation. They wrote, “It’s the bonds we build within our community that are the seeds we plant to make a better world. Your contribution will help Pets Alive provide year round support for the rescue and care of thousands of defenseless animals. During these cold winter months they need you more than ever.”
Choosing December 20th from 5-8 pm to do holiday shopping at Desires means having a great time while making a huge difference. There will be fabulous cocktails and company (both two- and four-legged), and for each gift purchased, a portion of the proceeds will help dogs and cats in need. Additionally, one can help by spreading the word, bringing and item from the Pets Alive wish list, or by sponsoring a pet.
