Schultz & Myers Supports Friends Of Kids With Cancer
Schultz & Myers will be a sponsor in the Friends of Kids with Cancer Fashion Show 2016!
Since 1992, Friends of Kids with Cancer has made it their goal to help St. Louis kids with cancer get to just be kids. With the help of this organization, kids who are spending much of their childhood in and out of hospitals are able to enjoy an outing or in this case, a fashion show!
Friends Of Kids With Cancer
The Fashion Show & Boutique is a special fundraiser that treats the young patients to a Hollywood lifestyle for a day at The Ritz-Carlton. Thirty patients from each pediatric oncology center in St. Louis will participate as models in this event. Each of the kids are greeted with personalized gifts, and then get their hair and make-up done for the shows.
“This is such an important event.” says Judy Ciapciak, Friends’ Executive Director. “When the kids are sick and pale and don’t feel pretty, the show lifts the gray sadness from their faces and replaces it with beauty. It might as well be the Academy Awards.”
Schultz & Myers Donation Sends Kids To Cardinals Game
Schultz & Myers’s donation to Friends of Kids with Cancer will provide funding for 125 tickets to send patients to Cardinals v. Cubs game in St. Louis.
In total, the Fashion Show is expected to raise over $120,000 to support Friends of Kids with Cancer’s Educational, Emotional, and Recreational programs.
