Sponsored by the Friends of Akron Children’s Hospital, led by President Madeline Bozzelli, the event will showcase the latest in kids’ styles while raising money for the hospital’s patients during the holiday season. It’s the second fashion show hosted by the Friends.
“Over the years, we’ve noticed that older hospital patients can be hard to buy for,” said Gia D’Andrea, who co-chairs the event with Lori Churchman. “We’ve found that they really appreciate gift cards, which lets them purchase something special for themselves.”
Models between the ages of 8 months and 10 will model some of the latest seasonal fashions, courtesy of Gymboree®. They also will showcase some furry friends from Build-A-Bear Workshop®.
“It’s such a unique opportunity to raise funds for Akron Children’s Hospital, and a fun event that the whole family can enjoy,” adds Gia.
