This year on March 9, Linking Events will be in Tampa celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Fashion Funds the Cure event. Mercedes-Benz, a major contributor to the cause, will once again team up with the Pediatric Cancer Foundation to help host the occasion.
The Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization that dedicates itself to funding research to finding the cure to childhood cancer. More than 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year and despite this fact, this is a consistently underfunded cause. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
Fashion Funds the Cure has been helping dreams come true for the past decade. This celebration brings together young girls who battle cancer every day and rejoices unsurpassed strength and courage. Celebrity host Carson Kressley joined the girls, on February 10th at Neiman Marcus, for a day of pampering away from treatments and hospital visits. After being chauffeured to the store, volunteers helped the girls enjoy manicures, pedicures and a full day of relaxation! In preparation for the fashion show the girls were treated to lunch and had a chance to choose outfits from the store.
Linking Events would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to visit thewww.Fastercure.org and learn more about the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
