Stylish looks were unleashed at Fashion to the Rescue. Hosted by Olivia Cohen outdoors at her gorgeous home, the fundraiser was sponsored by Charlotte Plastic Surgery. Proceeds benefitted the nonprofit Spay Neuter Charlotte, which provides high quality, low cost spay/neuter and animal wellness services to fulfill its mission of reducing the number of unwanted pets in the Charlotte area.
The models were Edwin Gil and Daniel Gonzalez, Terri and Mark Beattie, Kristen and Al Guarnieri, Dr. Jarrod Daniel, Zoe Kronovet, Catherine and Chris Manley, Toni Martin, Marcia Savage and Anna Cait Welch. The men wore clothing from Tabor and the women were dressed by Sloan and Our Place Boutique. Hair was by Varji & Varji Salon and Spa; the makeup was by Belda Carter.
Strutting down the runway were dog models up for adoption. The runway show was styled by Kevin Rice and emceed by Laronn McCraw and Amy Korta. Music for the fashion show was by Peggy and Chris Hicks of A&C Entertainment.
The fashion show was held in the morning so guests enjoyed a fabulous breakfast buffet courtesy of Chef Anthony. Guests were also able to shop for stunning pieces from Ellis Jewelers with 50 percent of the proceeds going back to Spay Neuter Charlotte. Raffle prizes were provided by Charlotte Plastic Surgery, Sloan, makeup artist Rudolph III, Jamie Scott from the Spa at Nordstrom, Pet Paradise and I.C. London Lingerie.
Fashion to the Rescue was just one of three fundraisers for Spay Neuter Charlotte held this Fall. The other two were Art Unleashed, an annual art sale, and Bone Appetite, a festive dinner at Sullivan's Steakhouse.
