Monica Pearson, Jenn Hobby, Cynthia Bailey at Doggies on the Catwalk fundraiser

This year’s Doggies on the Catwalk fundraiser was moved from Grady High School to a high-end furniture store Room & Board in West Midtown this past Friday night.

Local celebrities paraded dogs around for PALS Atlanta, which provides ongoing care and support to pets of Atlanta area persons living with HIV symptomatic/AIDS, and other critical illnesses or disabilities. Models and celebrities wore designer duds from Tootsie’s and Bill Hallman while Highbrow Hound dressed up the dogs. This year, the event raised $6,000, more than doubling last year’s total.

Here are some photos from the event. B98.5’s Vikki Locke hosted. Among the participants: Cynthia Bailey of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Jenn Hobby of the Bert Show on Q100 and Monica Pearson of WSB-TV.

He has been in the show before. But this year we decided to let Chief rest. Strike is a champion and a great cuddler. He snuggled up to me and just chilled. And I loved his hair do."

Great outfit on Jenn. Love that she has a rescue dog and understood that they take some patience amd work. Monica’s hubby is very handsome. Cynthia is just so beautiful, but why does she have a homeless bum walking behind her :)

Mr. $ Mrs. Pearson,

Congratulations MRS PEARSON, you have worked long and hard so it’s about time you retired. Mr. Pearson is to be congratulated as well for always standing behind his wife with his love and support. You two make such a nice looking couple. I wish you nothing but love, lots of traveling and fun together for the future.
