For the first time ever in D.C., the lavish Liaison Hotel was home to an "over the pool runway show" featuring several players from Washington Redskins and D.C. United in support of Becky's Fund, which raises awareness to help prevent domestic violence in the community. The rooftop runway for Becky's Fund: Walk this Way was hosted by the Redskins' Clinton Portis & Custom Clothiers' Eric Finn. Other Redskins in attendance were Jason Campbell, DeAngelo Hall and Chris Cooley, joined by United players Bryan Namoff, Devon McTavish and Santino Quaranta. The event also marked the beginning of a new strategic partnership between George Washington University Hospital Women's Board and Becky's Fund to work together to spread the message of respect, hope, and empowerment.
