Friends of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt Announce "Friends and Fashion 2011"

Friends and Fashion, coordinated by Friends of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, is currently recruiting table hosts for the annual luncheon and fashion show, along with attendees for the event’s pre-party.

Friends and Fashion is an annual event raising funds to support programs benefiting patients and their families served by Children’s Hospital. In its 21st year, the fashion show and luncheon includes professional models from Belk walking the runway with former and current patients of Children’s Hospital.

The show has become an annual tradition for many attendees to support a place where discovery brings hope. The runway show and luncheon is the primary event. However, several wrap-around activities give guests a variety of ways to support Children's Hospital.

Last year’s inaugural Friends and Fashion pre-party allowed supporters to enjoy a night of wine and dancing and this year’s lineup is not to be missed. The event will include a live auction, food and drink, and entertainment from “The Tyrone Smith Revue (Super T).” The pre-party is open to anyone wishing to support the place where discovery brings hope.
