Annual Furry Friends Fashion Fair held for Elkhart Humane Society

Posted:

The catwalk went to the dogs and their best friends at the annual Furry Friends Fashion Fair.

The Elkhart Humane Society hosted the event, considered one of their biggest fundraisers of the year, on Thursday night.  Traditionally, the event was held as a luncheon, but switched to the evening this year to allow more people to attend.

Subsequently, there were a lot of men there this year, too! And some of the dogs were decked out right along with their owners.

For about 10 years now, FOX28's Traci Capellman has helped emcee the event alongside Danny Reynolds of Stephenson's.

Bernice Simms is on the board of directors for the Humane Society and is also the event coordinator.  "Stephenson's has been with us the whole 10 years and they do a wonderful job with the models," Simms says. "And I tell them that nobody cares what the ladies have on because they like to look at the dogs because they're so cute!"

All of the money raised at the event goes towards the feeding and care of the over 4,000 pets at the Elkhart County Humane Society.
