Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Society Scene - Broward - - Front Page -

Putting a fash­ion­able foot for­ward to the end of breast can­cer, the non­profit Not My Daugh­ter…find a cure now! will host its fourth an­nual “Shop­ping Bou­tique and Lun­cheon” Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event, tak­ing place at Heron Bay Mar­riott,11775 Heron Bay Blvd.,Coral Springs, will take a turn on the run­way this year by fea­tur­ing a one-of-a kind fash­ion show pre­sented by stu­dents from the The Art In­sti­tute of Fort Laud­erdale. The fash­ion pre­sen­ta­tion will in­clude a full ros­ter of shop­ping, food and en­ter­tain­ment.

All pro­ceeds will ben­e­fit Su­san G. Komen for the Cure (Mi­ami/Fort Laud­erdale Af­fil­i­ate).

Cre­at­ing a fun and unique day is the goal for the more than 500 guests ex­pected to at­tend the en­gag­ing event. Fea­tur­ing a “Pro­ject Run­way” style fash­ion pre­sen­ta­tion, stu­dents in the fash­ion de­sign pro­gram at The Art In­sti­tute of Fort Laud­erdale have been en­listed to cre­ate spec­tac­u­lar, unique de­signs for mod­els and young chil­dren to show­case dur­ing the lun­cheon fash­ion show. Ad­di­tion­ally, the fash­ion stu­dents have cre­ated and se­lected scarves that will be sold in pairs, ex­clu­sively at the event.

Re­turn­ing for the sec­ond time to per­form are teen pop/coun­try ris­ing stars Jenny and Ash­ley Cooke of The Lock­ets, and DJ Chris Cruz will take the stage as mas­ter of cer­e­monies.

Spon­sors in­clude Blow and Go - Blow Dry Salon, Mary Kay Cos­met­ics and HCA.

Not My Daugh­ter…find a cure now! is driven by its mis­sion to erad­i­cate breast can­cer and finds in­spi­ra­tion in the next gen­er­a­tion. Led by Denyse Hostig, the vol­un­teer-run or­ga­ni­za­tion has raised more than $215,000 since it be­gan nearly four years ago.

Their tal­ents, cre­ativ­ity and prom­ise mo­ti­vates us to con­tinue the fight to end this dreaded dis­ease.”
