Strutt for a Mutt is an annual event showcasing a night of adorable pooches, glamour and fashion hosted by vintage couture-clothing store LONDON COUTURE and its fabulous owner Tina London. This year, LONDON COUTURE has teamed up with the Humane Society of Tacoma & Pierce County to give hope to the homeless dogs and cats within our community. With special guest MC Shannel from Ru Paul’s hit television show Drag Race they hope to raise more than $15,000 dollars to support the Humane Society of Tacoma & Pierce County in Tacoma, WA.
This evening, filled with sparkling fashion and Tacoma’s most adorable pooches, will take place at 8 pm on September 29th, 2012 in Tacoma’s historic Opera Alley: Court C, Tacoma, WA 98402. In addition to the fashion show, there will be magnificent performances by Shannel and other fabulous entertainment as well as raffle drawings throughout the evening. Thanks to a few local businesses, handmade and hand-decorated dog beds will also be auctioned off as another way to get donations to the Humane Society of Tacoma & Pierce County. Another great feature to this years Strutt for a Mutt is the privilege for guests to be able to adopt dogs, as well as cats, from the Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County during the event! The pets will be at the event with their paper work, ready to be sent home with their new family or picked up from the Humane Society following the event. Come socialize, possibly adopt a pet, and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres which will be provided by the newest vegan-raw restaurant in Tacoma, the AmeRAWcan Bistro. There will also be an opportunity to shop the looks seen on stage following the show.
