Now that I am all recooperated from FFP, I want to do a recap of the event. It was a huge success! Not only did I not fall when I walked on the runway, I also found out I am an ambi-turner! Who knew? But most importantly, we raised more than $255,000 for the animals of DC. There were 1,100 people in attendance…all for the love of our 4-legged friends! Thank you all so much for your support. And get ready for next year, I am sure I will solicit you all again for donations!
I cannot blog about the event without mentioning the people who made it happen: Miss Tara de Nicholas, the head honcho of FFP. Eleanor Blackford of the Washington Humane Society along with her volunteers. Aba Kwawu, the fashion show producer, Toka Salon who did our hair/makeup and Michael Saylor the chairman who matched the donations! And many, many, many volunteers and donors!
