Becky's Fund "Walks This Way" against Domestic Violence- 2011 Fashion Show Fundraiser

November 2, 2011-- Washington, D.C.  Lights, Camera and Action!  A sold out crowd greeted the beautiful models of the Becky's Fund 2011 Walk this Way fashion show fundraiser which raises money to end domestic and dating violence.  Entering its third year, the fashion show changed scenery this year and left the Liason Capitol Hill pool and instead embraced the grand statuesque Andrew Mellon Auditorium.  Co-hosted by Comcast Sportsnet's Julie Donaldson and FOX 5 morning show's Steve Chenevey, guests enjoyed the fashion event as it highlighted three eras that described the cycle of domestic and dating violence in a unique theatrical presentation. As part of Art Can Make A Difference, Art Soiree Co. displayed a special art exhibit of local artists along side an amazing silent auction that included stunning jewelry to sports memorabilia.
