Maurices shines spotlight on pets in need

Maurices at the Viking Plaza Mall in Alexandria will host a Rescues and Runways fashion show on Thursday, September 24 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The show will take place at the mall across from Alex Travel. Fashion management students from Alexandria Technical College will assist with the coordination of the show and modeling.

The show will feature models walking the runway wearing the latest fall looks from Maurices and featuring photos of pets that are available for adoption.

Maurices has launched Rescues and Runways nationwide to support local shelters. More than 700 Maurices stores in 44 states will host pet-themed fashion shows in September.

Maurices is also introducing a limited edition friends for life charm. Women can wear half the charm while the other half is worn by their pet. The charm is $5 and will be sold at all Maurices stores from mid-September through October 31. For every charm sold, $2.50 will go to support the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
