We had such an amazing time working with 30 beautiful ladies from Sonoma County who have been through treatment for Breast Cancer and have BEAT IT! These SURVIVORS steal our hearts every year with their strength and grace. It was truly an honor to doll them up for their walk down the runway.
This was the 12th year of Catwalk for a Cure, Sutter Medical Foundation’s annual fundraiser. The event starts with a champagne reception and raffle, moves on to a luxurious full luncheon, live auction, and then to the main event… a fun, high energy fashion show featuring volunteers from many of our own community organizations “strutting their stuff” for this great cause. All proceeds benefit Sutter Cancer Screening and Support Services. For information about participation in the 2015 event contact Sukie Gill at (707) 521-8883.
Special thanks to Will Bucquoy for many of these beautiful photos. Also to three ladies from La De Da Salon in Santa Rosa – Melinda, Christina, and Kate – who were responsible for all of the beautiful hair styles on our group. Also to Kelly Glass who did makeup with us. And to Ana Becker who played hostess for the day and took great care of ALL of us! We couldn’t have given the stars of the show this incredible experience without all of you!
…the random, hunky, half naked fireman is just a treat for scrolling all the way through 🙂
