Saturday, June 2, 2018 at the Greenberg Traurig Office at Terminus 200 in Buckhead, Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia – Doggies on the Catwalk returns this year for its biggest show to date. Celebrating 11 years of philanthropic success, Doggies on the Catwalk's founder and notable Atlanta personality E. Vincent Martinez is thrilled to take this year's event to the next level - 25 levels to be exact. Moving the annual affair to Greenberg Traurig’s Atlanta office at Terminus 200 in the heart of Buckhead, attendees are invited to experience a crowd-pleasing runway lineup that includes adorable pups, local personalities and coveted luxury brands. An unforgettable evening of fashion, fun and philanthropy, Doggies on the Catwalk will be held on Saturday, June 2, 2018 at 7 p.m. and benefits Canine Assistants, a non-profit organization which educates and provides service dogs for children and adults with physical disabilities or other special needs.
"In addition to raising much-needed funds for Canine Assistants, it’s also our mission to raise awareness about the organization and these incredible dogs that not only provide loyal companionship, but help those in need with essential everyday tasks – from turning lights on and off and opening and closing doors – to pulling wheelchairs, retrieving dropped objects and summoning help,” says Martinez. “We also simply cannot wait for patrons to see our new location, that will provide a more intimate and elevated experience and absolutely stunning views of the city. This year’s event promises to be our best yet.”
Emceed by beloved media icon Monica Pearson, the event will feature a cocktail reception and a high-energy runway show featuring the season’s most sought after looks from top designers and brands found at SAKS Fifth Avenue such as Gucci, Prada, Givenchy, Saint Laurent and much more.
