Memorial Health Foundation's 2024 Fashion Show Raises Over $132,000 for Local Patient Initiatives

Friday, April 19th, 2024

Memorial Health Foundation’s 19th annual fashion show, presented by Eramet, brings together local businesses, cancer survivors, and their loved ones for a fun-filled evening to support two incredibly important cancer center patient initiatives.

This year, for the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was completely sold out! All 750 tickets were sold weeks prior to the show, and the Havana Nights fashion show itself raised over $132,000 to help members of our community—a new record for the event!

With nearly 800 people in attendance, spirits were high as the models, dressed in fashion from local retailers, strutted down the runway to the cheers of their friends, family, and loved ones.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Foundation’s Breast Health and the Cancer Emergency Patient Initiatives and help with transportation, wig purchases, mammogram screenings, necessary dental care, and various other essential patient needs. In the first quarter of 2024 alone, Memorial Health Foundation has been able to support 68 patients and provide over $17,000 in funds to those battling cancer, and through the funds raised from the fashion show, many more will receive necessary support.

“It is truly such an honor for me and my entire team to be able to bring awareness to Memorial Health Foundation and to fundraise for local patients,” says Jarrett Stull, Executive Director of Memorial Health Foundation. “This community is so generous, especially considering the weeks of flooding we just endured. We had almost 800 people turn up to our event and raised over $132,000, and I think that speaks for itself. It’s truly a privilege that we get to do this for the community.”

Memorial Health Foundation is incredibly grateful for all of the wonderful models, all of whom are patients and cancer survivors, who participated in this important event and would like to extend their deepest thanks to those who donated and supported their mission of building a healthier community by helping patients receive access to the care they deserve.
