On August 27th, FINE Magazine hosted the 1st Hot Diggity Dog fashion show. The event showcased fashion, food, and good company in an effort to raise money for Helen Woodward Animal Center, a charity that saves the lives of shelter canines and other pets. Helen Woodward Animal Center is a unique, private, non-profit organization in San Diego County that, for over 40 years, has been committed to the philosophy of people helping animals and animals helping people. Located on 12 acres in Rancho Santa Fe, the nationally recognized center provides a variety of services that benefit the community through educational and therapeutic programs for people and humane care and adoption for animals.

The Carlsbad Forum was surely dressed to the nines last night... from human to pooch! With the check-in line wrapped around the fence as guests clamored to enter, the festivities began early in the evening at 5pm. Food and cocktails greeted our guests as they tried samples and wine tastings. A full list of our lovely food and beverage vendors is down below! With beautiful fashions for humans, adorable fashions for pups, and a cute doggie costume contest, Hot Diggity Dog was a fun family affair.
