Cupcakes for Paws

From cupcakes to Capitol Hill, everyone is buzzing about the Fashion for Paws 7th Annual Runway on April 13, 2013 at the National Building Museum to benefit the Washington Humane Society (WHS).

This year’s event will honor Congressmen Jim Moran (D-Virginia) and John Campbell (R-California) with the 2013 Humane Hero Award, which recognizes individuals in media, politics and entertainment who have displayed a passion for animal welfare. Washingtonians can follow their example by picking up Fashion-for-Paws-inspired “pupcakes” at any DC-area Georgetown Cupcake location through April 13. 100% of proceeds will benefit WHS.

Crunch time for Fashion for Paws Models

Start your countdown! We are just 3 weeks away from DC’s elite fashion event of the year: The Washington Humane Society’s annual Fashion for Paws show.

Fundraising models like April Jones Firoozabadi have to raise $3,000 to walk their dog down the catwalk during the event. April held a charity event at Salon Daniel in McLean and raised more than 2-thousand dollars, the most money made ever in the show’s history by a single model at one event! Last year the show raised nearly $350,000 for animals in need.

Fashion for Paws will be at the National Building Museum on April 9th and expected to attend are DC’s A-List media personalities,  athletes, politicians and business leaders.

General Admission is sold out but you can still get VIP tickets at fashionforpaws.org
