The 2019 Runway lunchtime fashion show, presented by PNC Bank, was an amazing success! The annual Daisy Days signature event raised a total of $615,000 for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Healthier Together initiative, which works to improve the health of the most vulnerable children in the Philadelphia community. Curated by Philadelphia’s trendsetters and taste-makers, The Runway showcased up-to-the-minute ensembles by area top clothing designers and boutiques. Looks were modeled by local celebrities and CHOP’s patients and supporters. Mary Anderson, a cancer patient at CHOP, modeled her “Magical Mary” print she created with the help of Lilly Pulitzer and Make-A-Wish Foundation.
More than 600 donors, clinicians, and friends of CHOP attended the event on May 9 at the Bellevue Hotel in Center City, Philadelphia. 6abc’s meteorologist Melissa Magee emceed the show, and Instyle Magazine’s fashions feature director Laurel Pantin provided expert fashion commentary and insider trends.
