Last week Dana Spain had here PAWS annual fashion show at Saks 5th Avenue. It was the same night as Phasion Phest, but I knew it was one event not to miss as the guest list is always fashionable, well heeled and fun.
Greeting me at the door was this sleek, stylish Lisa Silveri with the sponsor of the evening, Ferrari.
Francesca Ruscio, Miss Philadelphia 2013 on the red carpet. Philanthropic, Ruscio just hosted “The Miss Philadelphia Golf Classic” which raised $22,400 All proceeds went to the Wounded Warriors Project (in honor of Col. Kevin McAleese,) and the Miss Philadelphia Scholarship Organization. Congratulations!!
Erin Ginsberg, Jared Kerr and Ally Spavento. As this event fell during September, my question of the evening remained “What is a fashion don’t?” Ellen is completely against wearing dresses with Adidas sneakers. Jared isn’t a fan of socks and sandals. Ally cringes when gals wear jean shorts, especially on stage like Taylor Swift.
is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving
Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is the
city’s largest no-kill shelter and operates a high-volume, low-cost
clinic serving pet owners and rescue organizations that lack access to
affordable basic veterinary care. Through its adoption locations,
special events, and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for
thousands of animals each year. PAWS is working to make Philadelphia a
place where every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
What a pleasant surprise it was to see Greta Russo, Chief Executive Officer at Lotus Event Designs, Inc. Greta has made good on the promise to spread the word about her organization – SupportUrPet.com
, (pet fashion show) where proceeds go to aiding the Humane Law
Enforcement and other Animal Rescue organizations, nationally. Lately working in NYC, and next year in LA. During the live auction, her generosity was on display as she purchased a chef dinner for $2,000 and a VIP Philadelphia Style Magazine meet, greet & get to know R&B singer John Legend at Parx Casino on October 9.
