"Friends and Fashion" events support Children's Hospital

Spring forward into fashion and support the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt through the annual Friends and Fashion events coordinated by Friends of Children’s Hospital.

Mothers and daughters are invited to join this year’s new event, called Sundae With Friends. A behind-the-scenes look at a professional runway show, this exclusive event will include a sundae bar, hair and makeup fun, photo booth and a chance for the young girls to walk a real runway.

This new event occurs on Sunday, April 14, the day before the annual Friends and Fashion’s Runway Show and Luncheon on Monday, April 15. The fashion show highlights former patients walking the runway with professional models.

In its 23rd year, the fashion show is sponsored by Belk and will include a guest appearance by Greg Bates, guest speakers VU football coach James Franklin and his wife, Fumi, and emcee Allison DeMarcus.

Tickets to all Friends and Fashion events can be purchased at ChildrensHospital.Vanderbilt.org/friendsandfashion.
