Second Annual “Walk This Way” Charity Fashion Show

Help Becky’s Fund fight against domestic violence

Last year’s **Walk This Way** was the first event of its kind in the DC area as having the first over-the-pool runway fashion show in DC!

The signature event was an evening to remember as the best of DC fashion was modeled by the best in DC …sports and brought together celebrated philanthropists, celebrities, and community members to raise awareness of domestic violence.

Matt Landsberg, founder and owner of Eric Finn, the luxury men’s clothier, agreed to showcase his collection, modeled by local professional athletes, including current and former Washington Redskins Clinton Portis, Jason Campbell, Gary Clark; and Bryan Namoff, Devon McTavish, Ben Olsen, and Santino Quaranta of DC United. NBC4 sports anchor Lindsay Czarniak was emcee to a crowd of guests that included WUSA’s Angie Goff, CBS’s Kaylee Hartung, DC Councilmembers Kwame Brown, Vince Gray, Michael Brown, Survivor winner Yul Kwon, Redskins Chris Cooley, DeAngelo Hall, Albert Haynesworth, Santana Moss and other professional athletes.

Well-covered by the press, **Walk This Way** was successful in bringing light the fact that 1 in 3 women are affected by domestic violence today:

  • DC This Week described it as “spreading the message of respect, hope and empowerment. With sponsors such as Ferrari & Maserati of Washington, Alchimie Forever, Morton’s, Sports Club LA and many others, this is one event you won’t want to miss!”
  • The Washingtonian commented, “The glitterati were out in full force to fight domestic violence.”
  • Gary Clark of the Washington Redskins described the night as “Simply one of the best events that has ever taken place in the District.”

We hope you will join us for this exciting evening while supporting us in raising awareness about domestic violence and supporting the victims who need our help.
