Guests gathered at LymeAid Benefit Event on May 22nd at The Toyota of Manhattan Dealership to Celebrate Lyme Disease Awareness Month .
May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and during this time Americans are reminded of this very common tick borne disease. It’s an important month to encourage people to take the necessary steps to protect themselves and their families and pets from these potentially deadly critters. To celebrate Lyme Disease Awareness Month, the events purpose was to kick off a night of awareness for people and pet parents.
The Lyme-Aid Benefit was held on May 22, 2013, from 7-10pm at Toyota of Manhattan Dealership where attendees and their pets enjoyed a fun night of networking with petlovers and pet companies. The event's aim was to educate the public about how to prevent Lyme Disease as well as raise money for two non-profits: LymeDisease.org and Stray From the Heart, a local NYC pet charity.
"As someone who has suffered with the neurological form of Lyme Disease for years, I know the horror of this illness, which most people believe is easy to cure, but it's not, and it can be deadly if not identified in time," said Nikki Moustaki, author, dog trainer, and co-host of the event. "It's crucial that people be made aware of how to protect themselves and their pets from this debilitating disease, as well as how to treat it when and if they are bitten by an infected tick."
Special guests included: Richard Blanco, Inaugural Poet 2013; Benjy Bronk and Elisa Jordana as "BENJELISA" music, dance and comedy performance; Live band: Damn Glad; DJ DLITE; Al Chernoff, “Alley Cat” from Rescue Ink; Couture Dogs of New York Fashion Expose; fun photo booth from Royal Photo Booth; Kevyn Matthews the Gourmet Dog Chef; fashion contest for pups in fab green attire. Guests and supporters enjoyed cocktails, open bar, and food in the Lyme Lounge, yummy eats, pet and people vendors to taste and explore, prizes, a huge raffle table and more. Each attendee received an amazing goody bag too, a $75 value!
Four sponsors contributed towards this year’s event: Tick-SR, CritterZone Air Naturalizer, Natura, and PetCareRX. In addition, Freekibble.com gave 5,000 meals of Halo Spot’s Stew to Stray From the Heart in honor of the event.
Tick-SR is a new, patented tick removal product. It safely, easily and conveniently removes ticks. With Tick-SR, you also never need to touch the tick, and the entire tick is removed. The tick releases into a wipe to be disposed of cleanly and without the drama of tweezers. Consumers who purchase tick prevention products should also be prepared to remove a tick because dogs get ticks despite the use of prevention products. For more information, visitwww.tick-sr.com.
After winning first place at the SuperZoo National Show inLas Vegas last year, the CritterZone Air Naturalizer has gone on to earn praise from animal experts and homeowners with pet odor problems. The CritterZone is a compact, powerful device that removes pet odors from the air, rather than masking them. It works great for everything from cat and dog odors to unpleasant smells from hamsters, guinea pigs, birds, ferrets, rabbits, cages, litter boxes and more. Bill Converse, CritterZone president, said the affordability and small size represent the next leap forward in modern, air-cleaning technology. For more information, visit:www.critterzoneusa.com.
