Model with puppyFORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- A favorite event among the fashion-minded, animal-loving supporters of the Humane Society of Broward County, Fashion Forward for PAWS wowed the crowd at Neiman Marcus Fort Lauderdale. The sold-out October 14 luncheon and fashion extravaganza had it all: the latest trends in fashion, playful puppies for adoption, delicious fare and plenty of socializing. Chairpersons Christy Gumberg and Julie Strauch were thrilled with both the support from everyone who attended and the tally of over $33,500 raised for the Humane Society's programs and services. And yes, one sweet puppy found a new home right then and there!

Upon arrival, attendees enjoyed a cocktail hour while indulging in a Chinese auction. Prize drawing tickets were also available for purchase, with lucky Marcy Kronrad winning a $1,000 Neiman Marcus shopping spree! A highlight of the day was clothing designer, White Tulip, being on hand to sell from their line.

Neiman Marcus fashions were beautifully received by all Fashion Forward for PAWS guests, and wrapping up the show was the always-adorable "walk of the puppies" as models carried adoptable furry little bundles on their finale walk down the runway.
