NEW YORK, NY (Feb. 17, 2012) - This past weekend, the iconic New Yorker Hotel hosted the second annual New Yorkie Runway Fashion Show to benefit the Angel on a Leash foundation, a non-profit organization that creates therapy dog programs for hospitals and institutions. The event featured celebrities including the reigning Miss USA, Alyssa Campanella, and well-known New York personalities, along with their
fashionable dogs.

In addition to raising money through ticket sales and event sponsorship, Publishers Clearing House (PCH) and their famous Prize Patrol surprised David Frei, the legendary Voice of Westminster and author of the new book Angel on a Leash, when they presented him with a $10,000 check to benefit Angel on a Leash during the fashion show.

"New York City went to the dogs this week with the annual Westminster festivities and the New Yorkie Runway Fashion Show," said Sylvia Lima, general manager of The New Yorker Hotel. "The New Yorker Hotel was pleased to be hosting not only Westminster contestants but the fashion show as well. However, the most important thing of all was raising money for such an important organization - Angel On A Leash."

The New Yorkie Fashion Show event kicked-off at 5:30 pm on Friday, Feb. 10, with a red carpet cocktail party where dogs dressed in canine couture and their celebrity owners smiled for photographers and mingled with guests.

Following the glitz, glam and paparazzi excitement of the red carpet, Frank Basile, New York City opera singer and member of The Singing Sergeants (the official chorus of the United States Air Force), lead the crowd with the National Anthem before the four-legged models, and their two-legged owners, hit the runway at 7 pm.

When it was time to strut their stuff on the "catwalk," the crowd was wowed as doggie models displayed NYC's New Yorkie™ pet apparel. Emceed by David Frei and Elly McGuire, designer of the New Yorkie line and producer of the New Yorkie Runway Fashion Show, the event was a resounding success with more than 200 guests.

"Building on the pre-Westminster excitement as well as Fashion Week here in New York, the New Yorkie Runway Fashion Show was nothing short of a red carpet Hollywood premiere," said McGuire. "In addition to a fun night of seeing different dogs in fabulous outfits with their high-profile humans, we were able to raise money for a very important organization."

Show highlights include runway appearances by the following:

The reigning Miss USA, Alyssa Campanella
Matt Nordgren from Bravo's Most Eligible Dallas
Eden Wood from LOGO TV, Toddlers and Tiaras
Pat Battle, Weekend Anchor & Reporter for NBC4 New York
CBS Radio's 93.2NOW Rob Wagman and mascot Charlie Roo
John Monteleone, Celebrity dog trainer
Nancy Novograd, CEO and President of All Tame Animals Agency
Schmitty The Weather Dog and Meteorologist Ron Trotta (the official weather team for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show)

Other well-known personalities who were on-hand for the event included:

Oscar-winner and Broadway legend Celeste Holm presided as honorary chairwoman with her rescue dog, Barker
Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis, stars of TLC's DC Cupcake and their life size cupcake Taxi Cab.

The event was filmed by TLC and Logo TV for future airing in reality series programming.

NYC's iconic New Yorker Hotel, an official hotel for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and host of the New Yorkie Runway Fashion Show, is located at 481 Eighth Avenue (at 34th Street) across from Madison Square Garden and Penn Station in New York City.
