Nearly $300,000 was raised for cancer research at the 8th annual Friends of Winship Fashion a Cure Fashion Show held at the St. Regis Atlanta on March 9th. The event, which has raised over $1.8 million since 2013, increases awareness and provides funding to advance research in cancers that affect women.
The luncheon, organized by the Friends of Winship, was attended by 500 guests. The event featured fashions from local boutiques and designers. Models included cancer survivors, caregivers, Winship doctors, and volunteers. An auction and raffle complemented the day's activities. Co-chairs Blair Mann, her daughter Elizabeth Mann, and daughter-in-law Margaret Warren gathered a dynamic team of volunteers to produce another successful event. The guest speaker was Carol Young, who shared her personal cancer story, and inspired the audience to get involved to advance cancer research.
