Just one week before Washington's biggest night, the Fashion for Paws Runway Show at the National Building Museum -- benefitting the Washington Humane Society -- we'll kick off the celebration with the best thing to happen to brunch since, well, eggs, with "Dayside Brunch" at the brand-new, ultra-chic Cities restaurant at 19th and K.
The event will run from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., with bar and food service available continually. General admission seating is first-come, first-served; VIP tickets include guaranteed seating.
SOMEONE WILL WALK AWAY WITH:
- Tickets to see Charlie Sheen at DAR Constitution Hall
- VIP tickets to a taping of NBC's Meet The Press in Washington
- VIP tickets to Good Morning America in NYC
- A family pack of tickets to the Newseum
- An exclusive DC Spy Experience from the Spy Museum
- VIP passes to an invite-only 2011 White House Correspondents Association Dinner After-Party
- An Old Town Alexandria "Staycation," including hotel and dinner
- A weekend in Southeastern Virginia, including hotel stay and entertainment
- Business Class, Round-Trip airline tickets to Paris from OpenSkies
- "Become a Pundit in Three Easy Steps" media consulting package
- Kinect for Xbox 360, from Microsoft
If you've ever thought that the brunch experience could use a little more dancing, or that a night on the town would be great if it came with waffles, Dayside is the event for you. Join hosts Tommy McFLY, Brendan Kownacki and Chris Brown as they raise funds -- and raise the roof -- for WHS's Fashion for Paws.
On April 2, 2011, Cities will be the center of Washington's charity world and party circuit. For the first time, guests will be able to enjoy Cities' 96-seat patio -- one of DC's largest -- and dance the afternoon away.
What's more, a silent auction of impossible-to-buy events will guarantee the chance to bid on once-in-a-lifetime Signature Experiences -- including VIP tickets to the invitation-only events, trips to "other Cities," and excursions.
A portion of proceeds from food and drink purchased will benefit the Washington Humane Society's Fashion for Paws.
When & Where
Tommy McFLY, Brendan Kownacki and Chris Brown
The Washington Humane Society (WHS), the only Congressionally-chartered animal welfare agency in the United States, has been the area’s leading voice for animals since 1870. As the only open-access shelter in the Nation’s Capital, the Washington Humane Society provides comfort and care to nearly 30,000 animals each year through its broad range of programs and services including sheltering, adoption, spay and neuter, CatNiPP, Humane Law Enforcement, lost and found, human–animal therapy programs and Humane Education.
Charted by Congress 140 years ago, WHS established the city’s first public housing facility for stray and unwanted animals. A year later, WHS pioneered the creation of the District’s first ever animal cruelty law and for a period of time in the late 1800s, WHS also was given the power to investigate cases of child abuse.
Throughout the years, the organization has helped spearhead new legislation to protect the animals that live in the nation’s capital. In the 1960s and 70s, WHS helped DC create laws to prevent animal hoarding, and better health standards for pet shops and medical research clinics.
In 2001, after years of upholding and enforcing District animal cruelty laws, WHS was successful in its campaign to make animal cruelty a felony level crime. Just months after the law was enacted, a man was convicted of felony animal cruelty in Washington, DC and was put behind bars for two years for stabbing and killing his pet dog.
WHS operates two shelter locations; our private shelter at 7319 Georgia Avenue, as well as the District of Columbia Animal Care and Control Facility (under contract by the Department of Health) at 1201 New York Avenue. In addition to the two animal shelters, WHS operates a low-cost, high-volume spay and neuter facility. The National Capital Area Spay & Neuter Center serves the entire Washington, DC metro area and is located at 1001 L Street, NE, in the heart of Capitol Hill. WHS also has a new animal training facility called the Behavior and Learning Center, located at 7315 Georgia Avenue, NW.
The organization’s administrative offices are located at 4590 Macarthur Boulevard, NW.
WHS has nearly one hundred dedicated employees, twenty-two distinguished members on the Board of Directors and more than three-hundred active volunteers.
