Runway and Rescue Fundraiser for Shelby Co. Humane Society



The Shelby County Humane Society, in partnership with Glasscock and Chic Boutique, will host the first annual Rescue and Runway fashion show and dinner on March 26, 2011, at The Henry Clay. Tables of 10 are available for $1,000 by calling Georgia Bulmer Ferreira at (502) 655-6095.

The Shelby County Humane Society offers a no-kill shelter and refuge, the only one of its kind in the region. In 2010, the Society opened the Mary Gaylord McClean Clinic through private fundraising efforts. The Shelby County Humane Society is not eligible for federal or state funding because of the "no kill" policy.

Glasscock, a long standing fashion institution located in St. Matthews, is once again set to bring the New York runway to Louisville. Most recently, Glasscock underwrote and coordinated "Butterflies & Bling" for the Heuser Hearing and Language Institute. Once again, Glasscock will be bringing the stunning runway samples of Douglas Hannant, Christian Siriano, Badgley Mischka, Kevan Hall, Anita Ford, Stephen Yearick, Georges Chakra, Tangerine Jill and other fashion notables to Louisville for a very special fashion presentation.

Glasscock will also be hosting a trunk show at the boutique located at 153 Chenoweth Lane through the following week, with a substantial offering of the sales proceeds benefitting the Shelby County Humane Society.

All proceeds from Rescue and Runway will be used to complete the wildlife refuge located outside of Simpsonville, KY. Rescue and Runway will be produced by In C’Inc Marketing Solutions with the same attention to detail that was given "Butterflies & Bling." The event is being sponsored by Glasscock, The Silver Spoon, The Henry Clay, Brown-Forman, and many corporate and private table underwriters.

The Shelby County Humane Society was founded in 1978 as a no-kill shelter. The Society is funded entirely by private donations and fundraising efforts.

Tickets may be purchased by calling or emailing Georgia Bulmer Ferreira at Georgia@monningtonfarm.com or (502) 655-6095.
