THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all your support of Fashion for Paws!
Together, we raised more than $725,000 for homeless animals, and I individually raised more than $43,000! WOW!
The event was a huge success – I was honored to walk down the runway with my friend, Peter’s dog Milo! He was such a good boy the entire time! Thanks to Nicole Miller and Tyson’s Galleria for providing the adorable skirt and top I wore, Judith Bright Jewelry for the gorgeous jewels, and on and on and on!
But this could not have been done without, of course, the beautiful, talented and passionate Tara de Nicolas. This woman is the brains and the beauty behind the production. Aba Kwawu of the Aba Agency, Syzygy Events for the production and stage, TOKA Salon for fixing our hair and makeup and SO SO many more!
And for the celebrities that showed up! Marie Osmond, who actually adopted an adorable puppy from Washington Humane! Ashlan Gorse of E! who served as our emcee for the night and many other notables in attendance. If you made it to the event, you know how much fun it was! But don’t worry – here are a ton of pictures! http://nikkibontv.shutterfly.com/1020
Although it was not about me, I do have to mention that thanks to all your donations, I was named Washingtonian Fundraiser of the Year for raising the most money ever by one person for the event. So thank you!
The event also got a TON of press! Here are just a few from the likes of Washington Post, Elle, E!, People, Bloomberg,
