Mutt & Merlot…For A Good Cause In Brookhaven June 8!

June 5, 2012

Kitteh sez unwanted and injured kittehs are considered mutts by the peasants…erm, humans, and need just as much love as the dogs.

Let’s face it, we live in a very privileged world, where we tend to live much better lives than our parents, or grand parents, or, well, you see what I mean. However, with our privileged lives comes a downside: unwanted animals.

People will often treat animals as nothing more than a cute present, the latest accessory or something that’s an adorable baby but who cares when the Next Big Thing comes along.

Animals are living, breathing, caring, loving, needing creatures. They’re like us but better as they don’t judge, hate or bully. They just love us, sadly no matter what (even when a cruel human doesn’t deserve that love and hurts the animal).

Luckily places like the Brookhaven animal shelter and adoption centre exists, along with their partner in this fun and important night, the Guardians of Rescue.

They are throwing a wonderful shindig on June 8, called Mutts & Merlot to bring together people to help the abandoned, homeless, injured and abused animals of Long Island live better lives, get better and find forever homes.

So, they’re having an eve of wine, hors d’oeuvres, entertainment, raffles and song. (And animals for adoption will be making a stunning appearance.)

It starts at 7pm, ends at 11, and the whole shindig takes place at Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard, 2114 Sound Avenue, Calverton, NY 11933.

For tickets, (and they’re a complete steal at $20!!!) contact Brookhaven Animal Shelter or or call: (631) 286-4940

Join Edie Falco & Lorenzo For The Animal Haven Benefit June 7

June 4, 2012

On June 7, Prince Lorenzo Borghese and friends will be taking part in the 2nd annual Animal Haven benefit, ‘Performance for the Animals’. TV star Edie Falco will be there and music will be provided by Matt White.

The event is to be held at the City Winery on 155 Varick Street. You can choose to attend the special VIP wine tasting first (held from 6.30 til 7.30) or just go with the flow of general admission, which is from 7.30 til 10pm.

Performance for the Animals is not only celebrating over 10,000 pet adoptions, but to raise money to celebrate at least 10,000 more.

Like all good causes Lorenzo attaches himself to, this one also has its fair share of fun. There’ll be cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, great music and company and an auction.

Lorenzo hopes to see you there. For more information, or to get your ticket, either go toAnimal Haven, or call212 274 8511.

Home For The Holidays…With Lorenzo!

December 6, 2011

Join Prince Lorenzo Borghese this Saturday night (12/10/11) for fun, festivities, cocktails (all the holiday trimmings!), and cat and dog adoptions.

The event, held at 228 West 28th St (between 8th and 9th Avenues) is not only to raise awareness for homeless cats and dogs and raise money, but it’s to find a home for 30 cats and 25 dogs, because they all deserve to find a home and get to be in that home for the holidays.

Tickets are a mere $20 each, so rally yourself and your friends, and join Lorenzo in helping these loving animals find their forever home. After all, didn’t you always want to be Santa (admit it, you did – the whole sleigh and reindeer at your command, getting free drinks, cookies and cakes at every home….bringing joy to kids the world around…as jobs go, it’s pretty good, even if you do have to wear a long white beard and perhaps a pillow tummy under the red suit…)? Well, now you can.

Tickets are available at, and are tax deductible. The event starts at 6pm and ends at 10pm, so you’ll be able to attend and paint the town Santa red afterwards!

So do yourself a favour (and those little cats and dog who are searching for a home), and buy your ticket tonight. Lorenzo is looking forward to seeing you. Spread the word.

AC&C’s Animal Care Affair 50s Gala

November 1, 2011

Our very own Prince Lorenzo Borghese will be attending Animal Care and Control’s upcoming Gala, to be held at the Union Square Ballroom in NYC on November 3.

The Gala, a real sock hop, is from 6.30 until 9.30, and 50s attire is a must. There will be cocktails, a buffet, dancing and a silent auction. You can purchase tickets here, or make a donation, or even become a sponsor.

The evening is not only going to be an evening of fun, and of rubbing shoulders with stars like Lorenzo, people who really care about animals.

So hopefully you can make it, or if you can’t, you can make a donation of any sort. These animals deserve and need all the help we can provide for them. Check it out, now.


To The Rescue Gala!

October 4, 2011

Tomorrow night you can rub shoulders with the stars, eat amazing food, sip delicious cocktails, and help the Humane Society of the United States help our furry friends in need.

The gala is held at Cipriani’s in NYC, you’ll enjoy dinner, entertainment, and a live auction. While Prince Lorenzo Borghese is usually at the gala, this year he can’t make it (he’ll be in Florida, preparing for his latest appearance on HSN, and sharing the wonderful Royal Treatment with the world), he’d love for you to go if you can.  UPDATE! Silly me! Lorenzo WILL be attending the gala. He’s that dedicated to helping animals – and, isn’t this even more incentive to go? I thought so!

At the gala, you’ll be among the likes of Jill Rappaport, Will Estes and mayor of Newark, NJ, the honorable Cory A. Booker, and Prince Lorenzo Borghese.

We hope to see you there. For more information and to RSVP (and book your ticket) click here. Remember, every little bit helps, so if you can’t make it, check out the HSUS’s site for ways you can make a difference.

Lorenzo’s Starting The Humane Society Walk With A Bang!

September 15, 2011

And you should join him if you can!

This Sunday, from 9 until noon, is a fabulous Walk Humane event in Montauk – the event is a way for people or groups to raise money and bring awareness (and help) the plight of homeless pets.

But to launch the whole shebang in Montauk is the gorgeous beneficial cocktail reception at the Montauk Yacht Club, which is nice, because every charity walk should start with a little party – it makes things so much more fun, accessible, far reaching and appealing…not to mention a party puts everyone in a good mood.

And Lorenzo will be there. In Person. In Montauk. Personally I feel like it’s going to be an uplifting version of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. But with animals, and fun, and none of the gorgeous angst and existential questions, but in Montauk…see?

Anyway, Lorenzo is attending the reception tomorrow night at the Montauk Yacht Club, and if any of you pet loving, Royal Treatment adoring, Royal Pet Clubateers want to go along, hang with Lorenzo and help homeless pets, then click here to find info on tickets.

Lorenzo says he hopes to see you there.

Princess Borghese’s Rockin’ Horse Fundraiser 09/10/11

September 6, 2011

If you are in the NYC area please come on Saturday night to Hamilton Farms Golf Club in Gladstone, NJ (1 hour from NYC) for a party my sister is hosting. All money raised will help save horses. Should be a great time.

The above is what Lorenzo posted on his Facebook page this morning.

The Rockin’ Horse event is to be held at the Hamilton Farm Golf Club, and it should be an awesome time.

Personally I love these kind of soirees. It’s going to be gorgeous and fun with lots of hobnobbing (in denim and diamonds, no less!), and fab music courtesy of Daddy NoBux and Eric Hayes. Of course, no soiree worth its salt would be without delicious food and this one has a buffet dinner (the best), with drinks and both a silent auction and myriad auctions throughout the night! And there will be dancing!

But that’s not really why I love these things – I love these things because you get to have an amazing time, living it up, rubbing shoulders with some of the finest royalty we know (hint: Borghese!), and you’re doing it for a simply wonderful cause!


In this particular case, it’s for horses, and the event is fundraising money for the Mylestone Equine Rescue. Which is great. Because while most of us worry about dogs and cats, there are so many beautiful and intelligent horses that need help, and Mylestone offers the abused, neglected or otherwise deemed ‘unadoptable’ horses a loving and safe home for the rest of their lives.

All animals deserve the right to a happy, safe and peaceful life, and so many horses are treated terribly. So if you can make it, go and have fun, and help some beautiful horses live their lives the way they were meant to: majestically.

The event is September 10, 19.00 to 23.30,at the gorgeous Hamilton Farm Golf Club.

And we hope to see you there!
