Glowing cassette tapes (remember those?) were strung from the canopy of P.O.V's prized terrace in keeping with the '80s theme of the night.
MTV might have killed the radio star, but that mattered little to the hundreds of animal-loving partygoers who ascended to the top floor of the W Washington D.C.
hotel on Friday evening, for a special Halloween benefit celebration.
A decidedly ‘80s-themed affair, the party served a dual purpose as a fundraiser for the Fashion for Paws
program of the Washington Humane Society, much as it did at last year’s sold-out event
Boasting a playful ‘Neon Nights’ title, guests to the blowout bash took full advantage of the occasion to sport some of the loudest colors of the season (circa 1984), although a handful stuck with more tried and true, scary costumes.

At approximately 11:00 p.m., a talented group of break dancers – engaged specifically for the throwback event – took to the center of P.O.V’s famed lounge overlooking the Washington Monument for an energetic performance, as the crowd cheered them on.
One lucky partygoer even walked away with a pricey hotel sleepover package, champagne and breakfast in bed included, as the winner of the evening’s costume contest.
Talking about barking up the right tree.
