American singer, actress and family personality Marie Osmond adopted a puppy last night at the 6th Annual Fashion For Paws Runway Show to benefit the Washington Humane Society (WHS) at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. The star named her new pup George, after her late father George Osmond who passed away in 2007. Notable guests such as E! News Personality and event host Ashlan Gorse and her boyfriend and friend of ours CNN correspondent and environmental advocate Phillipe Cousteau. Redskin Tim Hightower also walked the catwalk. The sell out c rowd was wowed by the breathtaking event decor, with walk-ways bedecked in flowers and accents of pink throughout the VIP runway tables, glowing with light by Digital Lighting. Dinner and hors d’oeuvres were served by Design Cuisine, all atop grand centerpiece tables with flowing bottles of Moet & Chandon Imperial.
Since the event’s February 6th fundraising launch, F4P models, sponsors and committee members raised over $700,000 for the cause, exceeding the organization’s 2012 goal of $625,000. Photos by Moshe Zusman and Rich Kessler.
