For the eighth year, Bethesda Row is gearing up for a weekend of fashion-filled festivities. Unlike previous years, however, Bethesda’s The Front Row event will not be a multi-day bash—rather, the revelry will be contained to Sunday, June 5, with a compacted full-day schedule of events.
Additionally, though the event has come to be known for its out-of-town celebrity guest appearances—Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly, and Christian Siriano have all popped up at past Front Row events—this year’s special guests will include all local names. DC NewsBash—the breast cancer charity organization made up of local women who are news anchors—will bring Laura Evans, Autria Godfrey, Angie Goff, Alexandra Limon, Jummy Olabanji, Lauryn Ricketts, Andrea Roane and Shawn Yancy as The Front Row 2016’s special guests.
The day will kick off with mimosas and browsing through Bethesda Row shops starting at 11 AM, followed by a runway show at 12:30 featuring looks from Bethesda boutiques and hosted by the DC Newsbash anchors. Following the runway show, attendees will be released to visit the VIP parties at participating boutiques for freebies and treats.
The event is geared to benefit the DC Newsbash Breast Cancer Charity. The $25 tickets include a seat at the fashion show, two mimosas, a shopping bag, and a bingo card that can be stamped at Bethesda Row boutiques to be entered to win a $250 gift card to Bethesda stores.
The event will run from 11 AM to 3:30 PM on Sunday, June 5, at Bethesda Row, 4950 Elm St., Bethesda. Tickets may be purchased here.
