DEAR READERS Spring marks a happy time at the Boston Design Center. In our continued commitment to support New England charities like HEADING HOME TO DINNER and the Junior League of Boston Show House, we are introducing something unexpected: The BOW WOW BLITZ, a dog extravaganza like no other, will benefit Second Chance, a no-kill animal shelter (www.secondchanceanimals.org), and will take place on May 9th as part of our Spring Showcase. The day will kick off with a keynote at 11:00 a.m. by legendary event designer and author of David Monn: The Art of Celebrating, who will share how he spins magic and creates some of the most memorable events of our generation. That afternoon we welcome back BDC favorites Susanna Salk and Stacey Bewkes for a behind-the-scenes look at their new book, At Home with Dogs and Their Designers: Sharing a Stylish Life. They will showcase how A-list designers like Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Hutton Wilkinson, Jonathan Adler, and Bunny Williams embrace and celebrate their beloved dogs. The day will culminate with our BOW WOW BLITZ, complete with cocktails, canapĂŠs, canine treats, and a silent auction featuring dog beds and accessories that leading designers have created using fabrics and trimmings with partner showrooms. We hope you will all come out in celebration and join us in giving back to our canine friends. Did we mention that Second Chance will be bringing their adoption van?!
