Thank you to all of our wonderful attendees, vendors, sponsors, volunteers, and patient families that made the 27th Annual Fashion Show a success. With your support we raised over $400,000 for our Educational, Emotional, and Recreational programming. A record breaking success!
The 27th Anniversary Fashion Show & Boutique was a day focused on 30 special kids; a day full of fun, smiles, laughter and memories. To witness true strength is to attend this fundraiser and see these kids get up on that stage and walk the runway with big smiles on their faces. Many of these kids are exhausted, in pain and weak, but they do not let cancer define them. We can all learn something from their incredible perseverance and positive attitudes.
From the minute the kids arrived at The Ritz Carlton on Monday morning, they were pampered with gifts specifically chosen for them, met with their model partners and fueled up with breakfast. After a little down time, the kids hit the runway for a dress rehearsal, followed by hair and makeup and the luncheon show.
Our Kiddos Rocked the Runway with the St. Louis Blues
Can you imagine walking next to team captain Alex Pietrangelo or dancing with Ryan O' Reilly and Jaden Schwartz down the runway? The kids loved it and their smiles were contagious on and off the stage! http://bit.ly/2RoV4Ha
