Hair of the Dog Hot Dress or Hot Mess Hot Time Benefiting Autism

Hair of the Dog Hot Dress Hot Mess Hot Time Benefiting Autism

I’m tardy getting this up after all the Eagles excitement last week.  Saturday, January 20, 2018, the Hair O’The Dog annual event, celebrated twenty-four years of partying in style and giving back through its philanthropic endeavors at the Hilton Hotel at Penns Landing. Nearly 1200 guests came out to support the hottest party of the year, and as always they didn’t disappoint in their fashion sense.

Today’s affirmation says Carmena:
God is going to do amazing things in my life this week. #morningaffirmation #mondays change your mind frame, you change your life.

Cash Cash entertained the crowd as did the Eagles Pep Rally Band, and DJ Casper.  Hair O’ The Dog always benefits a local deserving charity, and as this year’s beneficiary was The Center for Autism, the oldest Autism treatment center in the country.

Longtime friends Dan Cronin (r) and Rob Molinaro created Hair O’ The Dog in 1995 as a way for friends in the industry to celebrate the new year together a few weeks after New Year’s Eve, and each year since this glamorous-gala has grown in size and importance.

Josh Whisler and Kass Dahlquist (oh I was running to a shoot request by my client and didn’t do justice to Kass’ dress. She looked amazing. You know I was in a hurry, she still has a drink in her hand and you know I don’t allow too many people to keep drinks in their hands)

I signed up for Enterprise Car Share, I need wheels to get me to the studio every week. I used to be with Zipcar, but when I went to their office on 12th Street I found they recently left and everything has to be done online. It wasn’t fun trying to get a human on the phone to explain all the levels. Bye Felicia!

It was as I said, an amazing day, with an amazing crowd.
See you tomorrow….
