NYC: Attend Matilda The Algonquin Cat's Feline Fashion Show On August 3
New York, NY: where you can order delivery food practically any time of day, catch a Broadway caliber performance in the subway, and attend cat fashion shows. This is why we're here, people!
Well.... not really, but it IS a perk of living here. If you, too, are a NYC-area local, you should come out to Matilda's Annual Celebration & Cat Fashion Show, taking place at the Algonquin Hotel on Thursday, August 3, 2017.
Matilda is the Algonquin Hotel's famous resident feline - she's even been immortalized in a children's book. The Algonquin cat has been around since the 1930's and is an ongoing hotel tradition - and on August 3, Matilda is throwing a pawty to remember!
The event will feature a fashion show with eight fashionable felines strutting their stuff in designs made specifically for them by certified animal fashion designer Ada Nieves. (OK, please tell me if you have a new life plan now that you know that's a job you can have.)
The theme this year is a tribute to Tony award-winning musicals and will include:
- Cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and desserts
- Cat fashion show
- Special performance from Cats (the musical)
- Silent auction
- Gift for all attendees from Cat Sushi
- On site cat and kitten adoption
