Rescue to runway: featuring Boston's finest

Our signature annual fall fundraising gala! A fun and one-of-a-kind fashion show and charity event designed to develop community support and raise critical awareness and funds for local rescue and shelter organizations.  Guests are treated to food, cocktail, music, stellar auction items, and FUN but the highlight of the evening, the runway show, features an array of Boston notables, each “strutting their stuff” down the runway with the best accessory of all… an adoptable dog!
