You Can Wag It … On the Fashion For Paws Runway!
Have you ever wanted to hit the Runway like a model? The Tommy Show has your shot! Be listening the rest of the week at 8:25AM for your chance to win a spot to strut your stuff on the Fashion For Paws Runway!
Fashion for Paws benefitting the Washington Humane Society in just six years has become one of the premiere fundraising events and evenings out in Washington DC. Started by several friends as a way to gain awareness for the animals of WHS and raise funds that support their vibrant programs around the district grew rapidly into a mega-party-with-a-purpose. Wanna go? This year Fashion For Paws will take over the National Building Museum on Saturday April 14th. Over 90 do-gooder-fundraising-model-hopefuls set out to raise at least $5,000 for a spot on the catwalk … the tickets are sold out, the runway is closed, and over 1700 people are ready for one of the most exciting evenings of the year.
NOW, THE ONLY WAY IN, IS TO WIN!
You’ll grab a pair of general admission tickets from Tommy, Kelly and Jen at 8:25AM. One of our peeps will be randomly selected to hit the Runway! You’ll borrow designer threads from Tysons Galleria [retailers like Elie Tahari, Nicole Miller, Betsey Johnson , 7 for all Mankind , Karen Millen, Sarar] and receive the full model hair and make up treatment from Toka Salon the day of Fashion For Paws. Once primped, prepped and ready you’ll take THE WALK in front of photographers, media, and over 1700 spectators. Fashion For Paws — produced by the magicians of SyZyGy Event Productions – looks like nothing else in Washington, DC. This Bethesda based firm puts their heart, soul and industry connections behind the set. Fashion for Paws couldn’t happen with out them!
