Tuxes & Tails
This weekend, I was thrilled to be a part of Seattle Humane Society's annual fundraiser, Tuxes & Tails. I got to experience this event both as a volunteer as well as a guest for the gala and it was incredible. Over $665,000 was raised in just a matter of hours. So many people with big hearts, wanting to help the animals as well as families who have difficulty caring for their animals. It makes you feel pretty good inside to know there are so many people who care. It was also the first time since moving to Seattle that I actually wore a dress, and that felt pretty good too!
Here are some pics from the Animal Fashion Show:
And here's a pic of me and Tom posing under the "Catsino Royale" sign. Looks like Prom night:
Here's a shot of some of our table attendees - the 2 gentlemen in the middle are our dear friends Mike and Gary. We met them shortly after moving to Seattle through our friends David and Mark in LA (Karyn's Mark):
Gary's tie matched the back of my dress so we had to snap a pic together, even though it's kind of hard to see the details of the dress, which was embroidered with pretty pink roses:
I'd also like to thank my friends at Fresh Wave for supplying the most fantastic auction baskets for the event. I started working with Fresh Wave back in 2003 when they launched their consumer line and now here we are 7 years later still going strong!
Good people and a great cause, all rolled into one.
