The event, emceed by Morning News co-anchor Melissa Wilson FOX 26, featured a fashion show with pediatric cancer survivors from Texas Children's Cancer Center and Community Champions, a group of notable Houstonians who do so much to help children battling cancer and make the community a better place. Before strutting down the runway in the latest fashion trends from Saks Fifth Avenue and Dillard’s, the Patient Champions enjoyed a fun morning of getting their hair and make-up done and spending time with Jeff Bagwell and Mary Lou Retton, the honorary Community Champions for the event.

The event, chaired by Sidney Faust, Judi McGee, Elsie Eckert and Scott Basinger, has raised over $1.5 million in funds for the Long Term Survivor Program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center since it started.

Please save the date of October 12, 2018 at River Oaks Country Club for our next Celebration of Champions event!
