DC Event: Capital Catwalk

4 06 2009


This Friday June 5th, the 5th Annual Capital Catwalk Salon with Byron Lars will take place in Washington, D.C. The event, presented by Simone’s Butterfly, is a fundraiser for the Washington High Tea Society. The High Tea Society (HTS) was founded in 1997 by the Honorable Judge Mary Terrell and uses “afternoon tea” as a vehicle to teach girls that success in the 21st century requires certain life skills, not just street skills. “Exposure,” Judge Terrell says is, “the key that allows a person to feel comfortable not only in their house but in the White House.”

Tickets for the event start at $100 for general admission and $150 for VIP pricing. The Capital Catwalk will be held at the historic Omni Shoreham Hotel (2500 Calvert Street NW, D.C.) and starts at 7p. To purchase tickets and learn more about the event, visit
