The event is co-hosted by Comcast SportsNet’s Julie Donaldson and Fox’s Steve Chenevey, and will feature amazing food, fashion, and entertainment all while supporting Becky’s Fund’s efforts in promoting the prevention of domestic and dating violence in our communities. In addition to the fashion show, Art Soiree Co. will add an artistic touch to the evening by presenting a special art exhibit of local artists’ work, as part of their Art Can Make A Difference project.
Tickets are still available, and it’s obviously a great cause. I’ll be out there tonight on behalf of the Redskins, covering the event. I’ll be wearing my blogger’s best, hope to see you out there tonight.
