Local fashion show raising money for struggling cancer patients
Local models and our very own Erika Castillo will be heading down the runway for a great cause Thursday.
The Taking Breast Cancer to Heart Luncheon and Fashion Show is happening in downtown at the El Paso Convention Center.
Proceeds from the event will go to copays, transportation and medications for breast cancer patients in El Paso who are falling out of their cancer care regimen due to lack of resources.
Castillo is participating in the show. She is a cancer survivor who was diagnosed in 2015.
Some of the models in Thursday’s show are breast cancer survivors and patients of University Medical Center of El Paso.
They will be wearing clothes from local boutique Ella Blue.
The show runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
