Ah, a little love today from our friends at “Atlanta & Company,” the local morning show on NBC affiliate 11 Alive!
We would have liked a little more, but alas, we’ll take what we can get here at Project Q Atlanta.
A little background: Hosts Holly Firfer (photo) and Tom Sullivan opened the show this morning with a chat about her participation in Doggies on the Catwalk. The Jan. 17 event at Grady High School raised funds for Pets Are Loving Support (PALS) and showcased the fashion creations of seniors in the school’s Urban Couture program. Local celebrities, including Firfer, Monica Pearson from WSB, Rob Marciano from CNN and drag personalities Bubba D. Licious and Alexandria Martin, were paired with their dogs (or borrowed pups) and fashion from the students to strut their stuff along the runway.
Firfer, who served as emcee, recapped the evening on the show this morning and even wore the dress that student Perri Campis designed for her. Campis also designed a matching outfit for her dog.
During the discussion, the show scrolled through eight photos from Doggies on the Catwalk that showed some of the dogs and participants, along with a shot of Firfer chatting with Michael Knight, the Atlanta designer who gained some attention with his run on Bravo’s “Project Runway.”
What the discussion didn’t include was props to us here at Project Q Atlanta for providing the photos. Yes, they were ours. Firfer knew that, as we sent them to her on Tuesday. (View the entire photo album.)
We were on hand Saturday to shoot photos and support it as part of our sponsorship of Doggies on the Catwalk. Project Q Atlanta was one of several sponsors, including Piedmont Bark, Liz Lapidus PR, Tootsies, Sweet Pea Spa Carter Barnes Hair Artisans, Firfer Designs (see, we give props when props are due!) and Luxe Atlanta.
Firfer mentioned Piedmont Bark and PALS, but not us. So much for our 15 seconds of fame.
Oh, well. At least we know where the photos came from. And the important thing is that the fun evening raised $2,208 for PALS.
