Aug. 5, 2014. More than 150 attendees gathered June 19 for the annual Pretty in Pink Fashion Show at Camp Yonahnoka on the grounds of the Linville Golf Club.
This year’s show featured fashions provided by Belk in the Boone Mall, modeled by Avery County ladies who have been touched by cancer. The guest speaker this year was cancer survivor Amy Michael.
The event raised $8,000 for the Avery County Cancer Resource Center’s Cancer Patient Emergency Fund.
The Avery County Cancer Resource Center is available to area cancer patients and their families. Patients are referred by their medical provider and have access, by appointment, to a variety of resources including a wig bank, hats and caps, prosthetics and educational literature. The center is located in the Sloop Medical Office Plaza beside Cannon Memorial Hospital in Linville.
