We are still dreaming over the #TampaFashionFundstheCure sponsored by Mercedes-Benz! The show highlighted 14 featured models and their dreams for the future. The featured models have never participated in the show before and are either currently battling cancer or have recently overcome their battle.
The show also celebrated 49 alumni models. The alumni models have all walked in the show previously and 46 of them are cancer survivors. They walked the runway in groups based on the number of years they have been cancer-free. Each featured model then returned to the runway accompanied by a professional who represents their dream for the future.
It was a night to remember thanks to all of the sponsors, volunteers, committee members, board members, escorts and families who made the event so special. Thanks to you, we raised more than $540,000 for pediatric cancer research! These funds ensure that all pediatric cancer fighters can live out their dreams.
