The 2010 Mutts and Models fashion show and benefit
The ninth annual Mutts and Models charity event trotted through the EXDO Event Center in Denver last night, raising over $100,000 in benefit for Harrison Memorial, Colorado’s largest nonprofit animal hospital.
Despite this year’s theme being “The Wizard of Pawz,” it wasn’t magic that helped raise funds, but rather the huge hearts found within the crowd. A very large portion of the money was made through a live auction that featured several prestigious gifts, from all-inclusive VIP vacation packages to VIP packages for this year's upcoming Mile High Music Festival among many more. Bidders paid well over face value to help support the cause.
After the auction, the event featured some of Denver’s biggest personalities walking side by side down the runway with their own furry friends.
