On Tuesday, November 12th, Douglas Elliman hosted a special event at the Douglas Elliman Gallery at 980 Madison celebrating some of the “Fabulous About Town Moments” of our beloved city with an exclusive book signing and gallery show by internationally acclaimed author Elizabeth Frogel of her book, Charlie Girl: “Tails” of a Very Original Poodle. Douglas Elliman agent Susan Sondag curated the event, which included signature fresh juice aptly named the “Charlie Temples” from Organic Avenue and signature Charlie Girl cookies baked by New York’s Eleni’s bakery.
The author was there with “Charlie Girl,” the real life standard poodle who inspired the series, signing books. All original drawings were on display. To benefit the ASPCA, there was a raffle for a framed original drawing and the author’s ten-year old daughter raised a large amount of money by selling tickets with her friends. Mr. Matthew Ruffi was the lucky winner.
Guests of the event included Catherine Adler, Broadway producer and Board Member of the ASPCA, Dennis Buonagura, Vice President of the Central Park Paws in conjunction with the Central Park Conservancy, agents from Douglas Elliman, and friends of the author as well as fans of Charlie Girl.
Bergdorf Goodman is the exclusive department store retailer for this first book, all sequels and branded products to come.
