More than 375 guests joined event chairs (pictured, from left) Scott Basinger, Judi McGee, Sidney Faust and Elsie Eckert for the 11th annual Celebration of Champions fashion show and luncheon at the River Oaks Country Club. The Patient Champions, who are pediatric-cancer survivors from Texas Children’s Cancer Center, kicked off their morning by getting their hair and makeup done. The event, hosted by FOX 26 co-anchor Melissa Wilson, featured a fashion show with the Patient Champions walking the runway with Community Champions, notable Houstonians who make an impact for children battling cancer. Community Champions included Nancy and Jack Dinerstein, Sippi and Ajay Khurana, Dr. Susan Blaney, Glenda and Russell Gordy, Shawntell and Keith McWilliams, Ann and John Bookout, Stephanie and Ernie Cockrell, Brigitte and Bashar Kalai, Stephanie and Frank Tsuru, Carol and Phil Garner, Sarah Herbek and Texas Children’s facility dog Elsa, Rini and Edward Ziegler, and Laura and Dave Ward. All models wore the latest fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue and Dillard’s. The event raised over $390,000 for the Long Term Survivor Program.
