Mardi Paws: A New Orleans-style Fashion for Paws Fundraiser

On March 6 Dr. Katy Nelson held the first ever New Orleans style event, Mardi Paws, benefiting the Washington Humane Society and Fashion For Paws. A heavy rain would not deter guests as they came out in support of their friend and this worthy cause.  Local band The Silent Critics entertained guests with a mixture of original songs and some classic hits from Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and a few late 90’s radio favorites.

Making the afternoon even better were Katy’s own Mini King Cakes, which were very hard to put down. Those who missed out can only hope she makes these again next year!

Once again I am honored to be a part of Fashion For Paws, and honored that Katy included me in her event.
