Show Your Soft Side (SYSS) and Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) will hold the seventh annual Pawject Runway, presented by Pet Valu, on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Royal Farms Arena. The fashion show features “Softies,” animal-loving professional athletes, entertainers and activists, who will strut their stuff on the runway “modeling” a range of adorable and adoptable dogs and cats in need of a home from BARCS. Proceeds from the event will benefit both BARCS in its mission to find forever homes for homeless and abandoned animals and Show Your Soft Side as it continues to work to change the mindset of a younger generation. The evening begins at 6 p.m. as guests are welcome to rub shoulders with some famous faces, as well as rub some warm, furry bellies of the adoptable pets. Guests can also enjoy beer, wine, cocktails and treats while browsing curated, high-end silent auction items. The fashion show portion of the evening, outfitted by Pet Valu, will kick off at 8 p.m.. Last year, the event raised 40 percent more than the prior year – $134,000 in 2017 to $185,000 in 2018. Over the past seven years, Pawject Runway has raised over $500,000 and has helped countless animals find homes by spreading awareness throughout the Baltimore community and encouraging adoptions. On-site adoptions of animals featured in the runway show are highly encouraged. General admission tickets to Pawject Runway are $35 and can be purchased online at https://www.pawjectrunway.org/. Food and drink will be available for purchase.
