Helen Woodward Animal Center is receiving a generous donation in high-style with a swanky, fashion event hosted by My Sister’s Closet and Pacific San Diego Magazine. The two businesses have selected the Center as their chosen charity for the chic clothing-centric affair, titled “Giving Back is the New Black,” taking place at My Sister’s Closet’s flagship San Diego location (8610 Genesee Avenue) on June 23rd from 1 to 3pm.
Attendees are invited to check out the latest in summer trends at a live modeling of hot looks from My Sister’s Closet and its men’s counterpart, Well Suited, in the comfort of a posh outdoor lounge, complete with a DJ and two bars serving designer cocktails and delectable edibles. Cuddly cats and dogs never go out of style and Helen Woodward Animal Center adoptables will join the festivities, proving that rescue pets are a rewarding trend that is sure to stay in fashion. The cost to attend is only $10 with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Helen Woodward Animal Center.
The first 50 guests will receive a custom designed reusable bag filled with goodies from My Sister’s Closet and other sponsors. And be sure to tell your friends! Whether you’re fashion-focused or puppy-passionate, this is a party worth barking about!
