SUNDAY APRIL 24TH AT TLAQUEPAQUE
Sedona, AZ February 21, 2022 – Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Village and pet boutique BowWow Sedona in Tlaquepaque North are teaming up again to help save local homeless animals at the Humane Society of Sedona by hosting the second annual Paws Rocking the Runway furbaby fashion show and online auction on Sunday, April 24th from 11:00am – 1:00pm at Tlaquepaque North.
Wendy Lippman, General Manager & Resident Partner of Tlaquepaque stated “We are thrilled to host our second canine fashion event to benefit local Shelter animals. Last year was a sell-out and a huge success and this year will be even more entertaining! Inspired by BowWow Sedona’s Kathy Louderback, the event highlights local community members and their animals as well as Shelter animals and many of our partners.” Glenn Scarpelli of SedonaNow will host the festivities as fur baby fashions from BowWow Sedona will be modeled by adoptable animals from the Shelter, as well as online celebrity Walk-e-Woo pet fashion spokesdog Mr. Woo and other special guests. Attendees to the event will receive a goodie bag filled with discount coupons and items from Tlaquepaque shops and other animal-related local businesses.
The Artist’s Kitchen Shop and BowWow Sedona will be offering 10% off their purchases to attendees to the event. The Humane Society of Sedona will also have volunteers and staff available with information on how to adopt the dogs featured at the event and how you can help support the Shelter’s different programs. Bespoke jewelry from The Lily Collection that benefits the Shelter’s Emergency Medical Fund supporting animals with critical medical needs will also be available for purchase.
The online auction will open for bidding on April 18th and conclude on April 23rd and then the items will be available to bid on in person at the event on the 24th. The auction will feature gift baskets from BowWow Sedona and other Tlaquepaque vendors as well as local artists, certificates for local shops and restaurants, and animal-themed items. To register to bid in the auction, text the word FASHION to (928) 223-7276. Seating includes outdoor single seating along the runway at $25 each and VIP tables (4 per table) around the Tlaquepaque North fountain at $45 per seat that include food and refreshments from The Pump House. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Shelter to support their efforts to find loving homes for lost, injured and homeless animals. Tickets can be purchased by going to the Humane Society of Sedona’s website HumaneSocietyofSedona.org/fashionshow/
From Monday, April 25th until Saturday, April 30th the Humane Society of Sedona will be hosting a special adoption event following the fashion show where all animals 6 months and over will have only a $50 adoption fee.
