Fashion in Glenwood has really gone to the dogs

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Aspen Valley Harley-Davidson and Colorado Animal Rescue are taking to the catwalk.

At 7 p.m. Saturday, the Glenwood Springs Harley dealer and CARE host the Fashion for Passion runway, a benefit for the valley’s animal rescue shelter.

“It’s going to be a very exciting, high-energy fashion show,” CARE executive director Leslie Rockey said. “It’s something new and different for the people of Glenwood.”

The idea for Fashion for Passion ” touted as a cirque-style runway show ” sprung after Aspen Valley Harley-Davidson expressed a desire to help CARE.

“Harley is so community focused,” Rockey said. “They’re all animal lovers over at Harley so they wanted to help.”

The runway show features Denver-area models sporting Harley fashions, some accompanied by a few of CARE’s top canine and feline models.

“It’s a big production,” Rockey said.

Rockey anticipates a strong turn-out Saturday. The event has already sold 200 tickets, a positive sign during difficult economic times.

“We’re hoping to sell a few more tickets,” she said. “We are definitely concerned about contributions going down. We’re hearing rumors of people looking for homes where they can have pets. And if people must surrender their pets, we wonder if people are going to be able to adopt.”

Fashion for Passion tickets are $100 per person and available by calling Steve at Aspen Valley Harley-Davidson at 928-7493, or Leslie at CARE at 947-9173. Admission into the event includes complimentary beer and wine, food, entertainment, the fashion show, a silent auction and photos with CARE cats and dogs.

“It’s going to be a fun night out,” Rockey said.
