American Breast Cancer Foundation to Host Inaugural Fashion Show Fundraiser
Date:11/14/2013

Bel Air, MD (PRWEB) November 14, 2013

In collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Breast Center at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, the American Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF) will host its 1st Annual “Fashion Saves Lives” fashion show. The inaugural event will be held Tuesday, December 10th at Port Discovery Children’s Museum. ABCF’s goal is to raise funds that will be used to provide grants for early detection breast cancer screenings and diagnostic tests for those who could not otherwise afford them.

Many of the fashion show’s models are breast cancer survivors who were treated at the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. Guest models include international fitness industry expert and long-time ABCF supporter, Lynne Brick, as well as members of the Baltimore-area media and other local celebrities. Keith Scott, CEO of the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, will emcee the event.

Among the models is Shay Sharpe, a breast cancer survivor and the founder of Shay Sharpe’s Pink Wishes. Sharpe was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer at the age of 26. She founded Pink Wishes to give a voice to young women with breast cancer; a disease that is often associated with older age. Pink Wishes is a non-profit organization that grants wishes to young women who are diagnosed with terminal breast cancer before the age of 40.

“I am looking forward to walking in the American Breast Cancer Foundation fashion show,” says Sharpe. “I admire ABCF for all that their foundation is doing in the fight against breast cancer, especially for its work with young adults.”

The event is set for Tuesday, December 10th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. A $25 general admission ticket includes a tour of Port Discovery Children’s Museum with a “Taste of Baltimore” food tasting from several Baltimore restaurants and access to the fashion show. In addition to what a general admission ticket offers, a $125 VIP ticket also purchases one screening mammo
