Runway to Hope


ORLANDO, Fla. - Join WFTV 9 Family Connection for the Runway To Hope Spring Fashion Soiree May 11th, 2013 at Rosen Shingle Creek at 6pm.

The Runway To Hope Spring Fashion Soiree is Runway To Hope’s signature charity event of the year. This year's event is hosted by USA Gold Medalist, Gabby Douglas and The Twilight Saga actress, Ashley Greene.

Festivities will include a cocktail party with cuisine from Orlando's finest local restaurants and caterers and a truly fabulous live and silent auction, taking place from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The highlight of the evening will be a special fashion show featuring approximately 30 incredible and brave children, ages 2 to 18, all who are currently battling or have overcome their cancer. Modeling much more than clothing, these courageous children make their fashion debut arm in arm with one of our dozens of national and local celebrity escorts as they show off the truest beauty of all – their unwavering spirits. The Runway To Hope Spring Fashion Event 2011 is a celebration of these children and their incomparable strength and courage.

All proceeds will help fund clinical trials, research, technology and family assistance in the war against pediatric cancer at both Florida Hospital for Children and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and ultimately benefit all children with cancer, indirectly nationally and worldwide.

Your involvement is so important as fundraising is essential to curing pediatric cancer. Sadly, not enough money is dedicated to research for its cure. You will be inspired and touched as you participate in this all inclusive community event. Participation by both pediatric hospitals, representatives from all local media outlets and inclusion of both political parties makes a resounding community statement. When it comes to helping these amazing children and their families, we are all joined in this important common cause.
