Tish & Snooky helped ignite the late '70s PUNK scene with MANIC PANIC and its evolution as the internationally renowned hair color and cosmetics company it is today. It all began in 1977 when two New York born sisters Tish and Snooky, (at the time singers in the original Blondie lineup) added some extra ambition to their rock 'n' roll lifestyle and opened America's very first punk-style boutique on NYC's infamous St. Mark's Place. Tish and Snooky watched their hair dye worn proudly by high fashion models and celebrities of all kinds. Suddenly MANIC PANIC exploded in the magazines, television, and major motion pictures. With the millennium came major international distribution for the line. The sisters still continue to rock out with their punk band Sic F*cks reuniting for special occasions. Tish & Snooky also make frequent guest appearances accompanying greats like Robert Gordon, Ronnie Spector, Tony Visconti, and Patti Smith.
Frankie's Friends is a 501(c)(3), non-profit foundation dedicated to finding cures and saving pets with cancer and other life-threatening illness and injuries. The foundation was started in 1998 by veterinarian Neil Shaw who found that few alternatives exist for the large number of pets from loving and responsible families who simply are unable to pay fully for an unexpected illness. Based on each individual case, families always provide some contribution of funds for their pets' care. Funds raised through Halos & Heartbeats will assist families who demonstrate substantial financial need and whose pets have a good prognosis for recovery to a normal quality of life for a reasonable period of time. In the NYC metropolitan area, pets being assisted by Frankie's Friends are treated at BluePearl Veterinary Partner in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. BluePearl further discounts the cost of treatments for pets funded by Frankie's Friends.
