Helen Woodward Animal Center’s (HWAC) posh pups and couture cats are feeling quite prominent as of late. It is all due to the swanky, high styled event created and hosted by My Sister’s Closet in conjunction with Pacific San Diego Magazine.
This 2nd Annual Fashion-Focused Fete took place almost a week ago on Saturday, June 22nd. It was a three-hour fun-filled celebration from Noon until 3:00 p.m. and all proceeds from the $10 entry fees from the event went to the ‘paw’-sh HWAC orphaned pets and the programs to support these pets.
The two hosts combined their efforts for the second year in a row to throw this chick clothing-centric celebration. It was entitled “Giving Back is the New Black” and it took place at My Sister’s Closet flagship San Diego store location; 8610 Genesee Avenue.
The affair was planned according to the first day of summer and thus it was quite appropriate that the theme of 2013 was of the beach variety; set to correspond with the latest trends for the hotter months. The attire displayed was perfect for the upcoming Surf Dog Surf-a-Thon scheduled for later this summer.
There was a D.J. present to enhance the shopping experience that was set up in the comfort of an elegant outdoor “beach” lounge. It was complete with two bars that served designer cocktails and delectable edibles.
In addition, attendees had a free nail, hair and makeup bar to visit, fun giveaways (including surfing lessons for your favorite pooch!), and a fashion show highlighting the latest in summer styles from My Sister’s Closet and its male counterpart, Well Suited.
There were fun cuddly canines and felines from the Center present at the fashion jubilee that never go out of style. They displayed the fact that rescue pets are a rewarding trend that is sure to stay in fashion! It was really a party worth barking about!
My Sister’s Closet is the nation’s largest designer consignment resale store and part of the Eco-Chic Consignment, Incorporated family of shops. Founded in 1991 by the Siner sisters, the chain was established with a goal of working for good. Not only do the stores sell consigned items at 60 to 90 percent below retail value, but the company has a history of hosting similar events to aid selected charities at each of their 13 locations throughout Arizona and California.
The Helen Woodard Animal Center is so grateful for organizations that give back for the sake of animal rescue. It is just one of the many ways that the Center is able to do all of the tremendous work that they do each year!
