Hundreds, including Congressman Bob Filner, were in attendance at the eighth annual Strut for Sobriety! event―a fashion show hosted by A New PATH (Parents for Addiction Treatment & Healing). PATH is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization of people working to increase awareness of drug addiction and to increase access to treatment.
The fashion show featured seasonal styles from Macy’s, which were modeled by men and women of all ages–from veteran firefighters to one toddler who insisted on high-fiving everyone within reach as she bounced down the runway.
The event was held on Saturday at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina and emceed by several local TV and radio personalities like NBC San Diego’s Rory Devine and Channel 10 News’ Geni Kavit. KYXY 96.5’s Little Tommy Sablan and Laura Cain also made an appearance.
