FASHION SHOW FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the Fashion Show?
The NC4K Fashion Show: A Night of Champions is a celebratory event where we gather as a community to support our pediatric cancer heros and their families. This event is NC4K’s largest fundraiser of the year. Modeling in our fashion show are members of our community including those who fundraise for NC4K, corporate sponsors and most importantly our Hero Kids themselves! In addition to the program, guests can enjoy appetizers, a silent auction, music and a variety of entertainment activities.
Why should I attend?
NC4K knows how to have fun and this is one fun night! Join us to celebrate our families, support our mission, laugh, dance and be a part of making a difference in the lives of kids fighting cancer.
How did the Fashion Show begin?
In 2007, Nellie planned the first Fashion Show, intended to be a one-time event. In the process of planning the event a little girl named Eden entered the pictured.
Eden was going through her second battle with cancer and in the midst of treatments, doctors' appointments, hospital stays and everything else that comes with the battle, Eden remained ecstatic to model in the first NC4K fashion show. Nellie was in awe of how much life and energy was contained within Eden. When the day of the show came Eden was ready in her black dress, sparkly bald head, and gold shoes. As soon as Eden stepped out into the bright lights she stole the show! As she strutted down the catwalk the audience honored her with a standing ovation. Eden’s essence defined the first catwalk, and remains present in every show since.
As the show ended Eden leaped into Nellie's arms and said with her sweet voice "That was so much fun….I can't wait until next year!” Right then Nellie knew NC4K was here to stay. Unfortunately, in late 2008 Eden lost her battle with cancer, but her joy and energy stays with us in everything we do.
