Bad to the Bones: Rescued on the Runway
A fashion show fundraiser benefiting the Humane Society of Louisiana will be held Saturday, October 16, 2010, from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m. at Eiffel Society, 2040 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana. There will be three cash door prizes ($150.00, $100.00, and $50.00). The first two hundred guests will receive doggie bags full of treats for pets and great giveaways for their humans.
The doggie fashion show starts at 7:00 p.m., and all the canine models will be up for adoption with the hope to be rescued on the runway! After the fashion show, our guests will have a chance to participate in a Costume Contest for best-dressed pet, best human costume, and best pet/person pair.
Prizes include a private Zephyrs’ Box Suite party for twenty of your closest friends and family, a six month supply of Natural Balance dog food from Petcetera, a three month supply of Nutro dog food from Petcetera, gift certificates from many wonderful local businesses such as Slim Goodies and Hands on Therapeutics and several local restaurants…as well as other prizes.
Café Atchafalaya, Joey K’s, Eiffel Society, The Harbor, and Mahoney’s Po-boys will have tasty samplings of food. The Humane Society is cooking a vegan dish. All food sales from these restaurants will be donated to one of the six local rescue groups who are presenting pets for adoption at the event. These groups are Animal Rescue New Orleans, Louisiana SPCA, SULA Foundation, Used Dogs, Tater Tot Big Dog Rescue.
Pet photographer, Scott Stuntz, will be available to take party pics of the participants. This New Orleans' style party will feature local live music from Juice and Kirk Joseph.
