Denim Dogs Fashion Blast 2015 Adds Additional Sponsors
Five New Sponsors Include Home Depot, Old Gringo Boots
TUCKER GA (3 November 2015) – Mister Migs, a Georgia non-profit organization that designs and produces high-quality couture dog wear and gear while providing employment opportunities for marginalized young adults, announced today the latest additions to a growing list of corporate sponsors of its upcoming “Denim Dogs Fashion Blast 2015” fundraiser, scheduled for Saturday, 7 November 2015, 6 to 9 p.m., at Ambient Plus Studio in Midtown Atlanta. Home Depot #175 in Tucker, Old Gringo Boots, AgoraTV, Pet-Fixer Mobile Veterinary and Bark Fifth Ave. have all committed support, bringing the total number of sponsors for the event to twenty.
“This event wouldn’t be possible without the support of our very generous sponsors,” said Karen Lynn, founder and president of WOW In-Sync, Mister Migs’s parent company. “Through their generosity, we can not only show how Mister Migs’s products celebrate dogs and their owners, but promote its larger mission to help young adults develop career skills and grow in self-confidence.”
Home Depot will be supplying the materials for the dog walk at the event. Old Gringo has donated $1000 worth of boots for the silent auction. AgoraTV will be providing a robotic real-time videocam during the show, designed to capture the audio/visual impact of the event. Atlanta veterinarian Dr. Danielle (Dani) LaMarr, founder of Pet-Fixer Mobile Veterinary, will be onsite with the mobile unit to handle pet medical needs and to answer questions. Buckhead boutique and Mister Migs vendor Bark Fifth Ave. has committed financial support as well as providing items for the silent auction.
The ticketed event will spotlight couture canine designs from Mister Migs’s debut collection, modeled by local celebrity dogs accompanied by runway models. The Westin Hotel Buckhead announced in August that it had come on board as the official hotel. Other sponsor commitments include Simon Property Group, owners of Atlanta malls including Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza; Arel Group Wine and Spirits, Atlanta-based distributors of the Candoni de Zan family wines; Pet Resorts in Dunwoody; Atlanta Dog Trainer in Alpharetta; Georgia Power; Eidé Magazine; magazine Modern Dog; Pet Pages Atlanta; Factor Women; and Star K9. All proceeds from the event will benefit Mister Migs’s mission to provide real-life work experience for marginalized young adults, many with developmental disabilities and autism.
The runway production will be produced by Michelle Lynch, owner of Poshe Productions and Macy’s national show event planner; Star K-9 will provide many of the four-legged models, including several television and film stars along with show dogs and community heroes.
In addition to the fashion show, event guests will be treated to a dinner with unique cuisine, provided by J'aime Sweets & Savories, live jazz music and a silent auction.
