Good Dog Foundation Square Dance at Carolyne Roehm’s Barn
Once upon a time, in the 1980s, fashion designer-turned-lifestyle guru Carolyne Roehm presided over gala fundraisers at places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Lincoln Center. Now, she spends much of her time at Weatherstone, her estate in Sharon, CT, which has a equestrian complex that would make Ralph Lauren envious. On Saturday, June 19, she hosted a benefit hoedown at her stables for The Good Dog Foundation a non-profit group dedicated to many types of animal-assisted therapy for human beings. Guests ate at tables made of bales of hay covered with checked tablecloths and danced on a lacquered red dance floor painted with silhouettes of dogs that also hung over them with strings of white lights. A buffet supper of ribs, chicken and salads from nearby Serevan restaurant in Amenia was served on paper plates, and dessert came from a ice cream truck that pulled up outside the barn as the sun set over the Taconics. It was as stylish as any grand New York City charity party Roehm ever masterminded, but much more laid back, friendly and fun.
