Mark your calendar for the 27th Annual Children’s Cancer Fund Luncheon coming up on April 17.

White Rock-area neighbor Rina Cantrell (pictured above) will be in the fashion show presented by Dillard’s and produced by RSC Show Productions. The show features children who are undergoing treatment for cancer at Children’s Medical Center Dallas. The little models will be escorted down the runway by sponsors and celebrity guests, including Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach. The event will also feature a live and silent auction.

Funds raised at the annual event help to “advance research and treatment programs in pediatric oncology at Children’s Medical Center and UT Southwestern Medical Center Dallas, which ultimately benefit children worldwide,” according to a press release.

The event is from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Hilton Anatole at 2201 N. Stemmons Fwy, in the Chantilly Ballroom. For more information, check out the website or contact the director of development Brittney Bannon at 972.664.1450 or brittney@childrenscancerfund.com.
