On November 1, attendees of the 34th Annual Couture for a Cure were welcomed into an enchanted forest at the Hyatt. Guests enjoyed Apple Sangria while browsing many wonderful auction items, treating themselves to a mini-makeover by Chanel and enjoying social time with friends and family. While enjoying an entree salad and decadent dessert, guests heard from Women for MACC and Jon McGlockin about the very important mission of the MACC fund.
Once again, the Boston Store fashion show did not disappoint. Models presented fall fashions in everything from street-wear to your perfect holiday cocktail party dress. The highlight of the fashion show however, may have been the eight childhood cancer patients / survivors that wowed the crowd with their model poses and smiling faces. To bring it all together, 3 1/2 year old cancer patient Joel Chmielewski and his family shared their story through a touching video that left some tears and many lasting impressions about the reality of childhood cancer.
A special thank you to our sponsors, donors, attendees, volunteers and planning committee members. Thanks to you the event raised over $120,000. This truly would not have been possible without the tremendous support of so many!
