A few weeks prior to the Runway to Hope Spring Fashion Soirée in March, Runway to Hope invited all of our boy models and their families to enjoy a day of fun and activities at this year’s Boys Bash. The day began at the Gap located in The Mall at Millenia, where the boys had the chance to shop around Gap trying on clothes and putting together the perfect outfit for their runway appearance. Joined by Chris Kirkpatrick from N*SYNC, Johnny Magic from XL 106.7, volunteers and committee members, the day was filled with fun and excitement from start to finish! From sunglasses, t-shirts, hats and shoes, each boy got the chance to choose their perfect outfit for their fashion debut. Once the boys chose their outfits, Finish Line located in The Mall at Millenia, opened their doors giving our boy models the opportunity to design their own custom t-shirts to take home that day. After all of the shopping and activities were completed, we loaded onto a bus and headed to Hard Rock Café for lunch and a behind the scenes tour! Hard Rock Café generously opened their doors to all of the Runway to Hope participants welcoming our models and their families to be “rock stars” for the day. The families enjoyed a delicious buffet and had a few hours of fun playing Guitar Hero and taking an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the Hard Rock Live. They even had the chance to walk on stage in the Hard Rock Live concert hall! In addition, all models left with fun filled goodies bags which included a football autographed by Hall-of-Famer Warren Sapp! Boys Bash was created to give the children and families affected by pediatric cancer a much needed and well-deserved break from hospitals, doctors, treatment, medicine and the other challenges they endure every day. This day creates a moment for these children where cancer doesn’t have to take center stage in their lives. A special thanks to Gap, Finish Line, Global Promo, Warren Sapp, The Mall at Millenia, the Nielsens Photography & Design, UPWARD MEDIA, Hard Rock Café, hard Rock Live and all of the volunteers who helped to make this day possible.
