On Thursday, October 30, amid a media storm and public outcry critical of bad behavior by NFL players, Washington-area professional athletes will step out as fashion models and step up as role models at the 6th Annual Walk This Way Charity Fashion Event. DC-based nonprofit organization Becky’s Fund, returns to the Italian Embassy (3000 Whitehaven St. NW) to host its highly anticipated annual fashion show, featuring global luxury clothing brand, GANT. Washington Redskins’ wide receiver Pierre Garçon and Washington Nationals’ pitcher Gio Gonzalez are just a few of the stars confirmed to hit the catwalk in support of this year’s event. Ticket sale proceeds will benefit Becky’s Fund’s “Men of Code” program — training high school athletes to become leaders in the movement to end violence against women. The show will also showcase cocktail and black-tie attire from notable designer, Karen Millen.
Moët Nectar Impérial Rosé and Belvedere will serve as the official spirits for the VIP and Players’ Lounge, adding an air of elegance to the always beautiful main atrium at the embassy.
Attendees will have the chance to rub elbows with the DMV’s favorite professional athletes, Grammy award winning performers, politicians and elected officials, business leaders and fashion influencers. Tickets for the high profile event start at $150 for general admission and $300 for VIPs, and will include specialty drinks, gourmet food and tasty desserts, as well access to the night’s buzz-worthy feature show.
