Models for Mutts fundrasier!

What a day!!!!!

The Models 4 Mutts fundraiser was a smashing success, raising over $23,000 for animal rescue! It was such a fun-filled day with adorable dogs sharing the love at the kissing booth, incredible auction items donated by so many generous businesses and people, delicious food donated by local restaurants, and of course all of the fabulous models who strutted their stuff to show off fashions from local businesses. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this day the huge success that it was, and to everyone who attended and supported the rescues.

An extra special thank-you to Lesley, Dawn and Donna who worked tirelessly to organize this event. They did a fantastic job putting this all together. And of course, a million thanks to our amazing groups of models who kept smiles on their faces and a spring in their step even when we had them wearing wool sweaters over flannel on a 30 degree day! We always have a fun time with our group!
