SUPPORT GOOD CAUSES ONE FASHION AT A TIME

Now in its 11th year, Doggies on the Catwalk returns June 2 with its mix of furry friends and fashion-forward models to raise funds for Canine Assistants, a nonprofit that trains and provides service dogs for persons with physical disabilities or special needs. Since its creation in 2007 in founder E. Vincent Martinez’s fashion classroom at Grady High School, Doggies on the Catwalk has become a favored annual event.

After a milestone 10thyear celebration last year, the goal for 2018 is to take the event up a notch. “We are thrilled to be hosted this year at the beautiful, chic and modern penthouse offices of Greenberg Traurig in Buckhead, 25 stories up in the Terminus building,” says Martinez, adding that attendees can expect an upscale evening of runway shows by partners Saks Fifth Avenue and Click Models. Some adorable canines will strut their stuff down the catwalk as well. “Guests will also have access to an impressive contemporary art collection of original, privately owned works on display throughout the space,” says Martinez. “VIP guests will have rooftop access with their own private bar.”

Attendees also can sample bites from several Buckhead restaurants and go home with gourmet candies from Pop! Events.
