It’s our biggest goal yet! $625,000. But I don’t think it’s a goal we can’t reach: In the past 5 years of F4P, we’ve raised $524,000 for the Washington Humane Society. So for 2012, we’re reaching for the stars.
This is just a heads up, so you can start saving your $$ for this amazing cause!
Interested in attending the big event in DC on April 14th? Stay tuned for the official launch of ticket sales. And make sure to buy your tickets from me, it’s helps me reach my goal of $6,000!
The 6th annual runway show will be at the National Building Museum to benefit the Washington Humane Society. This year, the event will be Co-Chaired by Michelle Benaim, Tommy McFly, Dr. Ashley Hughes and Sara Nielsen.
About Fashion for Paws:
The fashion show and fundraising event features 60 notable personalities as the models on the runway. On February 8th models will set out to each raise a minimum of $5,000 in the eight weeks leading up to the event in order to secure a spot in the runway show. To date, F4P already has 73 models signed-up to raise funds for a chance to model in the runway show. Models also compete in a friendly fundraising competition, in 2011 Sara Nielsen secured the top female fundraiser title raising $20,000 and Tommy McFly secured the spot as the top male fundraiser, raising more than $12,000.
With the rapid expansion of the F4P platform over the course of five years there has also been a change of venue for the annual spring Fashion for Paws Runway Show from its previous venues – the French and Italian Embassies, each with an 800-person capacity – to the National Building Museum in 2011, with a 1700-person capacity. Notwithstanding its recent doubling in size, the 2011 F4P Spring Runway Show sold out with 900 guests in general admission, 400 in the VIP runway style seated section and 400 in our seated dinner table section.
Tickets will go on sale February 8th, the same day that the model fundraising campaign begins. Tickets will range from $95 for general admission, $250 VIP seat, with tables starting at $3,000 for a table of six people, to VVIP tables for 10 people for $10,000 next to the runway.
