The ticketed event will spotlight couture canine designs from Rubio's fall collection, modeled by his dogs, along with dogs from the Foundation guide and service dog programs. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Guide Dog Foundation's mission to improve the quality of life for people who are blind, have low vision, or have other special needs.
In addition to the fashion show, event guests will be treated to a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres hour, dinner, and a Guide Dog Foundation program graduate who will speak about their increased independence, enhanced mobility, and companionship with their new guide dog.
This year special guest, CSM Gretchen Evans, USA, Ret. will come down the runway in her dress blues alongside her hearing dog Aura. Aura will be wearing a design created by Anthony Rubio of Anthony Rubio Designs.
