What’s not to like? Beautiful surroundings, great food, awesome people, a runway fashion show and all for a good cause – the American Cancer Society.
As lunch was being served, the runway models hit the cat walk. They were gorgeous and a few, especially one of the men, were really hamming it up and working the crowd!
Next came Monica Pearson, the MC for the event – she is so lively and fun! She made the next round of models feel right at home on the runway. They had cancer survivors strutting their stuff in fashions by Belk while Monica told their stories. Talk about time to count your blessings!
The Keynote speaker was Marcy Scott. She was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in June of 2009. She has now been cancer free for 15 months! Her courage and words of encouragement and gratitude sent many reaching for their hankies. She encouraged everyone to do self exams – Sherri and I were so pleased and excited as she told the crowd to sign up for BreasText! This is a program that we were honored to be a part of with Piedmont Hospital and 97.1 The River. Once you sign up, you get a monthly reminder – so easy! Check it out here.
