The Cowboy Catwalk was a kick-off to the WCA’s annual fund raiser, “Boots & Bling” held in spring 2012. “Cowboy Catwalk is a fun way to bring attention to a very serious issue in Houston,” said Valerie Delafosse, executive director of WCA. “This mix and mingle/fashion show will bring awareness to the WCA’s commitment to ending homelessness in Houston. Our fund raiser in the spring, “Boots & Bling” raises money for HomeAid Houston, a charity that fights homelessness on a daily basis. We are honored to have the mayor and a host of other industry professionals on the catwalk for this important cause.”
