by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Wednesday night, November 2, Andrew Mellon Auditorium was filled with people willing to stop domestic violence for good. Washington Redskins’ Brian Orakro, Anthony Armstrong, DeAngelo Hall, Capitals’ John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Nick Backstrom, DC United’s Ben Olsen, Former Redskins’ Gary Clark, Former Jets’ John Booty and others walked the runway to support Becky’s Fund in their biggest annual fundraiser “Walk This Way”.

Co-hosted by Comcast Sportsnet’s Julie Donaldson and Fox’s Steve Chenevey, this event featured amazing food, fashion,¬†and entertainment¬†all while supporting Becky’s Fund’s efforts in promoting the prevention of domestic and dating violence in our communities. In addition to the fashion show, Art Soiree Co. added an artistic touch to the evening by presenting a special art exhibit of local artists’ work, as part of their Art Can Make A Difference project.

To add colorful glamor to the evening, Maggy Norris Couture smashed the runway getting roaming ovations.

Enjoy the pictures and mark your calendars for Walk This Way 2012!
