The second annual Runway to the Cure fashion show returns to Reston Town Center Pavilion (11900 Market Street) on Saturday, Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. The show, which features designer fashion, showcases breast cancer survivors from the regions as models and aims to share their experiences.
This year’s event will be emceed by Kristen Berset-Harris, the host of WUSA9’s Great Day Washington, who is also a breast cancer survivor. All breast cancer survivors are invited to attend for a free. All other attendees are encouraged to donate $25 in order to attend the event.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The event is run by Reston Runway to the Cure, Inc., a local non-profit organization run by volunteers.
Unlike last year, the show will happen in the evening in order to attract more attendees and make it a more social event, according to organizers.
“We are excited to bring back Runway to the Cure to showcase local fashions as a way to raise money to fight breast cancer and, more importantly, honor our models who are true inspirations, raise money for an important cause, and introduce some great fun and fashions to the community,” said Jane Abraham, owner of Scout & Molly’s boutique, the event founder, and Runway to the Cure board president.
