Kellie Pickler to Host Dog Fashion Show With Nashville Humane Association
Kellie Pickler will be playing host for the Nashville Humane Association's second annual Unleashed: Dinner with Your Dog event, taking place Jan. 21 in the grand ballroom of the Hutton Hotel. The event will raise money for the many animals at the Nashville Humane Association in need of good homes.
Setting the standard in "canine couture," the night will feature dinner and drinks, as well as a dog fashion show featuring local clothing and jewelry designers and interior decorators, all of whom have created specifically themed pieces for the fashion show. After the runway portion, the night will bring a live auction of all the items benefiting the association.
Also in keeping with the theme of the night, several dogs will be up for adoption, walking the runway in hopes of winning their way into loving homes. They will be walked by celebrities including Jimmy Wayne, Sarah Darling, Karla Lawson, Allison DeMarcus, Shane Talent, Margaret Ellis, Heather Byrd, Mike Smith, Jeffrey Garner, Dean Miller and more. Ty Herndon was originally scheduled to take part as well, but has had to cancel his appearance at the event due to knee surgery. Russell Hitchcock, also on the original lineup, has had to cancel due to a scheduling conflict.
To attend the Nashville event, tickets can be purchased for $80 for general admission and $150 for Catwalk admission, and tables for groups of 10 can also be purchased. In the general ticket, $50 is tax-deductible, and in the catwalk $120 is tax-deductible. Tickets are available at Nashville Humane Association's website.
