Tulsa Promenade Mall and Turn Tulsa Pink along with radio stations Mix 96 and K95.5 hosted a fashion show, Oct. 7, in Center Court, featuring cancer survivors. The fashion show was part of a line up of special events during the Turn Tulsa Pink Compassion Week, Oct. 20-27.
Compassion Week is a focused week of love and respect for all those who battled cancer and focuses on the fundraising efforts of local grassroots charities that help women, children and their families within Tulsa County. Twenty-Four cancer survivors modeled fashions from enney, Macy’s, Buckle, Lane Bryant, Gap and Charlotte Russe. “The survivors were very excited to be a part of this special event,” says Judi Grove, Turn Tulsa Pink founder. “It’s a great opportunity to inspire others and show that cancer is beatable. These women represent cancers of all types, and they are stronger and fiercer than ever before.”
The show was emceed by radio personalities Ben Sumner of Mix 96 and Karla Cantrell of K95.5. “We asked the survivors to share with the audience advice on how to handle the diagnosis of cancer,” says Eileen Neighbors, marketing Director for Tulsa Promenade. “If their advice helps even one person watching the show, we will have accomplished a huge goal. Our participating retailers look forward to the event. And, as a mall, we are proud to be part of the Turn Tulsa Pink movement.”
