For the second year in a row, Linking Events will be joining Mercedes-Benz for their activation at the 9th Annual Bright House Networks Fashion Funds the Cure in Tampa. The event is presented by Neiman Marcus and Mercedes-Benz, and features a fashion show of young models that have battled cancer. The models will be escorted by local celebrities, all there to support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The store will be closing for this private evening of shopping, dining and a fashion show featuring spring season trends. The event will occur on February 29 and will be hosted by Carson Kressley of “Dancing with the Stars” and “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.”
A similar event, Rally on the Runway – Fashion Funds the Cure, will take place March 24 in Atlanta for its third year. Linking Events will also be there organizing and detailing the event logistics for the Mercedes-Benz activation. This event is hosted by the Rally! Foundation for childhood cancer research, and is sponsored by Mondavi Winery and Mercedes-Benz. Twelve young cancer survivors and battlers will model the runway alongside professional models at this event hosted by honorary chair Curtis Lofton of the Atlanta Falcons.
