What could be more fun for you and your Little Pampered Dog than fashion and celebrities? Jennifer Bartok, the Founder of Celebrity Catwalk, has been producing events that meld together fashion, fun and fur since 1999 in order to help raise funds for local animal welfare charities.
The next event for Celebrity Catwalk is Paws in the City which takes place on May 30, 2015 at the Copacabana in New York City. The Paws in the City event will showcase the work of several fashion designers for pets modeled by notable furry fashionistas. While most of the models are dogs, there is a “Cat-lebrity” – a cat model – in the show for the first time ever! Local charities will be on hand at the event to promote awareness.
In this podcast we get to meet Jennifer Bartok and learn all about the event. She shares how she started Celebrity Catwalk in 1999 when she lived and worked in Los Angeles. Through Celebrity Catwalk, Jennifer was able to merge her passions and increase donations and awareness for local animal welfare organizations
If you are in New York (or can get there) make sure to get advanced tickets at the Celebrity Catwalk website as the show is very popular. Otherwise, if you want to simply support the event efforts, you can make a donation on the website.
Jennifer encourages all of us to support our local animal charities. If you’d like to follow her lead in your local community she suggests starting small. Perhaps host a “Yappy Hour” and make sure to get local dignitaries involved to help you to promote your event.
