American Cancer Society hosts fashion show in Kirkland

Ahead of next month’s Relay for Life, the American Cancer Society (ACS) held a fashion show at Wilde Rover in downtown Kirkland.

The event, which was put on in collaboration with the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce, featured the latest fashions from Essentials on Park Lane, also located in downtown Kirkland. Cancer survivors Sheila Dwyer, Connie Hogue, Eunice Hostetter and Heather Woods were the models, showing off the clothing with gusto, grace and humor.

Rose Guerrero, executive director of cancer services at EvergreenHealth, also spoke before the modeling began, highlighting all of the ways the Halvorson Cancer Center partners with the ACS, including prevention methods, classes for both patients and survivors and support for patients and their loved ones.

“I’m always excited about the things we can do together,” she said.

The fashion show was held to preview the ACS’s annual Relay for Life event in Kirkland, which is happening this year from noon to 11 p.m. May 20 at Marina Park. It will be preceded by the Bark for Life event from 9 to 11:45 a.m.

Fashion show emcee J.D. Drollinger, who is the customer service lead with Relay for Life, plugged the all-day event before the models made their way out.

“We want to celebrate our cancer survivors,” he said. “We’re going to have a lot of activity going on down there.”

Last year, the event raised $50,000, and the goal this year is to raise $65,000.
