The 4th Annual Catwalk for a Cure on Sept. 25 will feature a fashion show, a gourmet dinner, silent auction and raffle items, and the always-popular Bras for the Cause competition. The event benefits the Shannon Cancer Empowerment and Resource Center.

Sponsored by Grigsby’s Boutique, Shannon Medical Center, Foster Communications and Legend Jewelers, the event begins at 6 p.m. in the McNease Convention Center, 500 Rio Concho Drive. Tickets cost $35 and can be purchased at Grigsby’s Boutique & Merle Norman Cosmetics in Stadium Park Shopping Center, 2019 Knickerbocker Road.

Proceeds will support Shannon’s newly expanded oncology department, which offers counseling services and other resources to help patients and their families through the treatment process.

The models in the fashion show are cancer survivors. The Bras for the Cause competition will feature decorated bras that in the past have featured seashells, flowers, metal and lights. All of the entries will be sold in the silent auction. To enter a bra, call (325) 949-0610; the entry fee is $25.

Other auction items include a weekend getaway in Ruidoso, N.M., a stay in Sealy Flats, John Hart luggage, and four prime seats to a Dallas Stars hockey game. A $3,500, 3-carat diamond and pink sapphire bracelet from Legend Jewelers and a $1,000 package from Elite Physique tanning salon will be raffled.

Dinner by Shannon chef Larry Lambert will feature healthy foods such as fresh vegetable and whole grain pasta scampi, curried chicken over brown rice, and dark chocolate pudding parfaits with berries. A cash bar will also be open.

Catwalk for a Cure will be followed on Sept. 27 by the Tee Off for Ta-Ta’s golf tournament at Bentwood Country Club, 2111 Club House Lane. The tournament also benefits Shannon’s cancer center. The entry fee is $100 per person. The shotgun start for the four-person scramble will be at 1:30 p.m. Registration and lunch by Chili’s and Texas Roadhouse will be at noon. Raffle tickets will be available for $25 each, or five for $100, for a pink golf cart. There will also be hole-in-one prizes and a “bet your bubbies” hole contest.
