Tickets are going fast for tonight’s 2nd annual Greyote Gala at the Clam Shack on Wapatusset Harbor. Thanks to emcee Scrim Shaw, keynote speaker Liam O’Liam and event planner extraordinaire Trixie Morton, the gala is sure to draw a colorful mix of animal lovers, townies, socialites and social misfits.
Jane Peyton, volunteer outreach coordinator for the Greyote Rescue League, will oversee the Feline-Canine Fashion Show (to benefit the local chapter of Animal Hoarders Anonymous). Highlights include Persian cat hair wigs, hair extensions and shoulder bags modeled by Shari Bing (author of the Vegan Margarita Diet Cookbook) and a song-and-dance tribute to “Cats” by local politician and pianist Dina Canady. Rumor has it that ambulance-chaser/stand-up comic Craig Barkin might make a surprise appearance (leaving his own birthday party) to do his famous dog jokes and Huckleberry Hound impersonations.
TMG fashion correspondents will be on hand with updates from the "red carpet" outside the Clam Shack, beginning at 5:00 p.m. today. Here's a sneak peek at some of designs we're expecting to see from party-goers and models alike. Hope to see you there!
