Walk of Champions: Breast Cancer Fundraiser

Yesterday at the Coastline Convention Center in Downtown Wilmington was the Walk of Champions, a semi-formal, resort wear celebration of breast cancer survivors. The event, which used to be known as the Pink Fashion Walk, featured breast cancer survivors in all stages of their journey. The fashion show included 40 local breast cancer champions who modeled the current trends in front of family and friends. In addition to the fashion show there was food, an open bar, and live music by Sonic Spectrum. Tickets weere available for $75.00, and proceeds go to the Pretty in Pink Foundation. Founded by Dr. Lisa Tolnitch, a breast cancer surgeon with Duke Cancer Institute, the Pretty in Pink Foundation helps people diagnosed with breast cancer pay for their treatment.
