News & Updates from LOLA’s Four-Legged Resident

Greetings from LOLA the Dog

7.2.2014

Hi, Everyone. This is LOLA. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen everyone, so I want to give you an update about me and what’s going on at LOLA.

1. I just attended the Wags & Wine event recently where we helped raise a lot of money for my less fortunate four-legged friends. I hope with everyone’s kind donations, we’ll be able to help find them really great caretakers and homes.

2. I’ve been really busy this Summer keeping everyone company at the new LOLA House (aka my palace in Napa Valley). Can you tell that I’m really excited and happy to live in my new home?

3. I’m currently on a camping trip with my friend, LOLA Wines founder and winemaker Seth Cripe and his really cool friends. There are tons of activities that I can’t participate, such as abalone hunting and surfing, but I’m pretty happy here to just help them keep an eye out at the camping site.

I hope you are having just as great of a Summer as I am.

Mr. Morgan’s Summer Soiree at the Morgan Library and Museum

6.25.2014

– The Morgan’s Library and Museum in New York –

The Young Fellows of the Morgan Library & Museum held its annual Summer Soiree on Wednesday, June 25. We were among the hundreds of guests who attended the event and enjoyed a night of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and live music beneath the recently unveiled Spencer Finch installation in Gilbert Court. The unforgettable moment was having a glass of wine in Mr. Morgan’s Library and looking through his collection of first edition books and scripts.

LOLA Wines Spring Garden Party at the Frick Collection New York

5.28.2014

– The Frick Collection New York –

We were among the nearly 500 guests who attended the Frick’s Spring Garden Party, Sprezzatura: A Celebration of Italian Renaissance Poetry and Style. As the evening began, we headed outside to the beautiful and rarely open Fifth Avenue Garden, which was landscaped to resemble gardens of the Italian Renaissance. Guests enjoyed the art, drinks, conversations, and ended the night with a lot of music and dancing. Needless to say, it was a magical evening!
