The 20th Annual American Cancer Society Breast Cancer Fashion Show and Luncheon was held Oct. 19 at Sea Palms Resort, on St. Simons Island. The show featured 12 local models, 11 women and one man, all breast cancer survivors. This group has a combined 68 survivor years. This fun, fashion-filled, fundraising event featured clothing and accessories from Evelyne Talman, Gentlemen’s and Lady Outfitters, Maggie’s, Ronne’s and Shackelford Shoes.

In addition to the fashion show, the event featured the ever-popular “Pink Boxes”, a silent auction, and a live auction with unique items from local artists and merchants.

The American Cancer Society invests more in research to find, prevent, treat and cure cancer than any other non-governmental organization. They not only support breast cancer research but also fund research to find cures for all types of cancer. In the state of Georgia the American Cancer Society currently has more than $6 million invested in research grants — two at Georgia State University, six at Emory University and two at University of Georgia.
