- CHARITY BENEFIT
The Animal Medical Center (AMC) located on the Upper East is a non-profit veterinary center that has been a national leader in animal care since 1910. As an academic veterinary hospital, The AMC promotes the health and well-being of companion animals and sets standards for quality medical care, research breakthroughs and education.
On May 9th, The Animal Medical Center held its Fourth Annual Living Legends Luncheon at The Harmonie Club located at 4 East 60th Street. More than 150 attendees celebrated the amazing stories of two companion animals: Ruby, a Domestic Short-Hair cat and Blueberry, a Chihuahua. Both animals suffered complex neurological disorders and received ground-breaking treatment at the 510 East 62nd Street facility. The Living Legends Luncheon was hosted by Kathryn Coyne, AMC’s Chief Executive Officer, along with event co-chairs Barbara Hoffman, Kane Nussbaum, Helene Stein and Eva Usdan.
Welcome remarks were provided by Robert Liberman, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. AMC veterinarians Dr. Chad West, DVM, DACVIM provided an overview of Ruby’s case, while Drs. John McCue, DVM, DACVIM and Joshua Greene, DVM outlined details of Blueberry’s case.
Guests recognized that neither pet would be alive today without the treatments and care they received at The AMC and celebrated both Ruby and Blueberry as true Living Legends.
Funds raised from the Living Legends Luncheon will continue to support The AMC- a teaching institution which is universally
recognized as one of the world’s most comprehensive hospitals for companion animals. With a distinguished 101 year-old legacy, The AMC cares for pets 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For more information about The AMC, visit: http://www.amcny.org.
