Rolling Hills Country Club is going to the dogs — literally.
On June 9, models and canines will take over the Newburgh, Indiana, club for the first annual Divas and Dogs event.
Guests will enjoy appetizers and cocktails as they vote on grumpy cat pictures and in an owner and dog lookalike contest, bid on items including a ring from Brinker’s Jewelers or a detail package from D-Patrick in the silent auction, and be bow-wowed by fabulous fashions as models strut down the catwalk wearing the latest trends from Glitters and Traditions.
Owners will walk their pooches in a dog show as they compete for first, second, and third place trophies.
Admission to the event is $40 at the door or $300 for a table of eight. Advanced tickets are available at Parkdale Animal Hospital and Glitters and Traditions. All contributions are tax deductible and all proceeds from the event go to PAAWS No-Kill Animal Rescue in Newburgh.
Glitters and Traditions’ owner Barbara Dye conceived the event as a way to combine her two favorite things — dogs and fashion — and to give back to the community. PAAWS was chosen as the recipient of the proceeds because of its commitment to dogs.
“PAAWS is a cage-free rescue shelter and is important because it creates happy and healthy homes for the dogs,” says Diane Masterson, the event’s chairwoman. “Anybody who has had a pet knows of that undying love for them.”
