Last night, Becky’s Fund hosted a charity fashion show on the rooftop of The Liason Hotel to raise awareness for domestic violence. The show, titled “Walk this Way,” featured Clinton Portis, among a dozen other Redskins and United players, modeling the custom clothes of “DC’s Best Custom Clothier,” Eric Finn.

In addition to the DC sports figures, the raised catwalk over the center of the hotel’s rooftop swimming pool featured female models demonstrating actions of domestic violence before charging forth on the runway. The final action: Becky Lee, the founder of Becky’s Fund, untying the hands of the model and removing her blindfold, before embracing.

Becky Lee has demonstrated incredible advocacy against domestic violence, and last night’s event was a huge success for her cause. We’re proud to have such a hard-working advocate here in DC, and we’re looking forward to featuring her soon to find out why “She Loves DC.”

Cathy was fortunate to spend a year in Paris – traveling to all surrounding countries and touring all that is worthy. Upon realizing that there is no place like home (she does hail from Kansas City – but did not click her heels to get back – thank you, Air France), she returned to America where she set out to explore every last inch of our massive country. From her base in the nation’s capital, she has worked in marketing and event planning for the past 4 years. Mail any and all DC related tips to Cathy (at) WeLoveDC (dot) com.
