Paws In The City Top Hat & Tails 2010

by Shari Peyser


DALLAS, TX – April 2010 – Top Hat & Tails, the annual fundraiser for Paws in the City, will be held on Saturday, June 12th at the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Love Field. The evening event brings in the most revenue for Paws in the City each year, saving more dogs and cats from the streets as strays and from being euthanized at the Dallas shelter. And it’s a fabulous social event, a chance to dance with some local “Stars.”

Judge Claudia Marshall, owner of the Arthur Murray Studio in Dallas and Plano, will serve on the panel of official dance judges, and the celebrities will be paired with several Arthur Murray dance instructors, who will teach the stars how to put their best performance on the dance floor. “We are honored to be a part of this great annual event both for judging and teaching the celebrities how to look great when they step out on the dance floor, like they know what they’re doing” said Claudia Marshall. “We had a great time last year at Paws and are looking forward to another successful fun filled evening. This year the competition seems to be even greater. A few of the Celebs have started taking some brush up 50’s Rock and Roll, Twist, and slow dance lessons at our studio.”

The Flight Museum will be transformed back to the 1950’s featuring a star-studded celebrity dance contest along with cocktails, and a live and silent auction. The dance floor will be open to all before dinner and after the dance competition…an excellent opportunity to dance with our local stars.

Dancers for 2010 so far are:

  • Carly Patterson: all around Olympic Gold Medalist
  • Dee Lincoln: Founder, Dee Lincoln’s Tasting Room & Bubble Bar, Del Frisco’s Steak House and The Dinghy
  • Gary Seith: CBS 11 Meteorologist
  • Michelle Witten: Wife of Dallas Cowboy, Jason Witten
  • Richard Chamberlain: Chef/Proprietor Chamberlain’s Restaurants
  • Jocelyn White: Texas TV and Radio Personality and President of Jocelyn White Media
  • Brendan Higgins: Television Anchor and personality
  • Kim Fischer: Reporter for KXAS NBC 5

Judge Claudia Marshall, owner of the Arthur Murray Studios in Dallas and Plano, is joined by fellow judges Charles Lewis Haley, five time Superbowl winner and Former Dallas Cowboy, and Kellie Rasberry, host of KDD’s Kidd Kraddick morning show. These three strong personalities bring their quick witted critiques, comments and “step by step-coverage” to highlight the evening. The judges’ scores are combined with guest’s votes to determine the winner, who is presented with the Lucy Award, named after a beloved dog owned by our emcee, Preston Pierson.
