The Fashion for Paws® (F4P) Annual Runway Show benefiting the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) launched in 2007 and, in just 11 years, has raised more than $4 million and has generated an incredible amount of national and regional media coverage. F4P continually sells out each year and has been named the #1 Fashion Event in Washington, DC eight years in a row!
ANYONE can participate! The participants walking the runway are Humane Rescue Alliance ambassadors who raise a minimum of $4,000 (hopefully more) to benefit HRA for the honor of escorting their fashionably dressed dog down the runway. Participants compete in a friendly fundraising competition, which launches January 22, 2018, for 15 weeks leading up to the event. The three top fundraisers will be recognized with awards on stage prior to the runway show.
The Runway Show Event:
There are VIP seated tables ranging from $3,500 to $7,000 and a very limited number of special $10,000 tables that are located right next to the runway (the best seats in the house). Table guests are served a three-course vegan meal and are invited to arrive early for a VIP Reception beginning at 7:00 PM. VIP Tickets ($220) are available and will be located behind the tables - guests will be seated at high-top cocktail tables. General Admission Tickets ($120) are available and will be located in a standing-room-only special section.
