This Friday, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will be hosting their 4th Annual Glamour and Giving Event at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Downtown Denver. The evening will be full of fashion, beauty, and libations all for a good cause. 100% of the event proceeds will go to patient care and research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital who treat nearly 8,000 patients per year.
The Glamour and Giving Event will feature boutique shopping, along with a fashion show featuring Cry Baby Ranch, Goorin Bros, Timbuk2, and other Larimer Square boutiques. While sipping on signature cocktails with your girlfriends, receive beauty consultations, shop the styles featured on the runway and bid in the silent auction. Not only will it be a fun night out, you will be helping children like Ella.
When Ella was 7 years old, she found out she has rare type of cancer, adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC), which affects one in 3.3 million children. Ella’s family took her to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for treatment and care. She received chemotherapy for several months and was able to go home and continue chemotherapy.
For months, Ella had good check ups but the tumor returned. ACC patients have a very low chance of survival upon relapse but she started radiation and as of January 2016 Ella has shown no signs of cancer for an entire year. Ella’s family is thankful everyday for St. Jude and their determination to fight for every child’s life.
Patients of St. Jude never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, and food. Events like the Glamour and Giving Event are extremely important. The last three years, the Glamour and Giving Event has raised roughly $200,000 for St. Jude.
