In 2012, we held the first Pawject Runway at a bar on the harbor. The runway was lit by our cell phones and the stage was so flimsy that two of our plus-sized models, John Rallo and Frank Remesch, flipped a coin to see who was going to test its strength first. By year two, our attendance had outgrown the venue and we moved it to the Royal Farms Arena. Since then, it’s become a favorite for animal-loving sports fans from Washington, D.C. to New York and a highlight for our growing team of Softies.
Thank you to the more than 1,200 attendees, 58 sponsors and 37 Softies who made Pawject Runway 2017 the best one yet. In one beautiful night, we raised over $200,000 in cash and in-kind donations to support the animals at BARCS and the Show Your Soft Side campaign, and found forty-six cats and dogs fabulous forever homes. There’s nothing else like it in Baltimore and we’re happy to say, Pawject Runway will be returning in May of 2018.
