Mark Garrison Salon to Host "Primping for Pups" Styling for Charity Event to Benefit the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals®

New York, NY – Wednesday, February 2, 2011 – Join the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals® for an evening of haute coiffure for people and their dogs when stylist Mark Garrison and Mayor's Alliance spokesperson Stephanie Mattera host a special I Love NYC Pets Month event at Mark's Upper East Side salon at 108 East 60th Street on February 23 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Humans can enjoy styling by Mark Garrison's professional staff, while their four-legged friends undergo their own transformations by award-winning dog stylist Olga Zabelinskaya and her team of celebrity dog stylists. A photographer will be on hand for "after" shots of beautified dogs and humans.

The excitement continues with special appearances by the stars of NYC life's new reality show, Doggie Moms, which follows five women whose lives revolve around their dogs and provides valuable information about City resources for dog owners.

Other highlights of the event include adoptable dogs from Posh Pets Rescue, an Alliance Participating Organization, gourmet snacks for dogs provided by Evermore Pet Food, wine and delicious vegan delights from Candle Café for humans, and a dog boutique featuring clothing designed by Olga Zabelinskaya, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Mayor's Alliance.

More Information & Tickets

Tickets are $35 for general admission, while the prices of salon services for people and pets vary. All proceeds benefit the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. Tickets can be purchased via PayPal.
