The Biggest Event in my Career So far: The Survivor’s Fashion Show

I’ve done plenty of big events but this, Survivor’s Fashion Show, is one that I hold close to my heart! Not only because my father passed away with Lung Cancer and I felt the need to do something annually to honor him and help build a community of survivors or anyone affected by cancer but because this feels like the first event where I took the most risk so far! Zero budget! But with the right collaborative partners, we are getting things done and have sold out our VIP section!

Proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life and please believe that everything I wrote on my last book: was put to use! So if you are looking to plan an event in the near future make sure you get a copy of my book and read all about the 10 Step Guide to a Successful Event.
