The most successful Fashion a Cure event to date took place in late April when 500 supporters raised more than $370,000 for Emory University’s Winship Cancer Institute.

The luncheon at the Piedmont Driving Club brought together cancer survivors, their loved ones and Winship health care professionals, many of whom stepped into the spotlight and modeled clothing from local boutiques. One of those featured was Simply Buckhead’s publisher Joanne Hayes, who walked the runway with her doctor and whose video of her cancer journey proved an inspiration for generous giving. Simply Buckhead was also the media sponsor. Chaired by Buckhead residents Lynne Rankin, Jennifer Raulet and Ashley Whitehurst, the afternoon featured a raffle and live auction overseen by emcee Ronnel Blackmon and fundraising host Magen McRoberts.
