The Sunrise Fund will host “Little Miracles,” a fashion show fundraiser starring children and young adults who have survived cancer or who are in the last stages of their cancer treatment to benefit Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, on Wednesday, March 26, at Villa Lombardi’s in Holbrook.
The Sunrise Fund was established in 1999 by dedicated parents to raise awareness of childhood cancer and to raise funds for new treatment facilities, family programs and cutting-edge research. Since its inception, the Sunrise Fund has enabled Stony Brook medical staff to establish innovative programs, such as the School Intervention program, a support group and more. The event is also designed to give parents and children and parents an opportunity to celebrate their recoveries and be recognized for their extraordinary courage.
“The anticipation of debuting in the fashion show has been exhilarating for these children and teens,” says Jeanne Greenfield, a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner and chairperson of the event. “In the midst of their illness, the event has served to promote tremendous self-esteem for these children as they as are applauded for their bravery when they grace the runway!”
Tickets to the Little Miracles Fashion Show are $75 and individuals may also choose to sponsor a child or family. For tickets and more information, call 631-444-2899.
