Fashion Funds the Cure
The 11th annual AGW Capital Advisors Fashion Funds the Cure presented by Neiman Marcus, Mercedes-Benz, and Bright House Networks took place on Saturday, February 22, 2014, at the Tampa International Jet Center, Hangar #4. It was a celebration of incomparable strength and courage as girls battling cancer made their debut on the runway escorted by celebrities including players from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rays, and New York Yankees. Carson Kressley of Dancing with the Stars served as the celebrity host and guests enjoyed fine wines and delicacies from top area restaurants while raising funds for critical pediatric cancer research.
On January 19, 2014, in preparation for Fashion Funds the Cure, the featured models and their mothers experienced the ultimate day of pampering full of relaxation and time away from the rigorous treatments and hospital visits. The girls were picked up in Mercedes-Benz and chauffeured to Neiman Marcus. Volunteers from The Junior League of Tampa greeted the girls upon arrival and the fun continued inside with manicures, makeovers, lunch, outfit selections for the fashion show, and a goodie bag. It was an unforgettable day of smiles and laughter for the girls and their mothers.
