In honor of September’s National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Bloomingdale’s 59th Street hosted Runway Heroes on Saturday afternoon, September 26th. A total of 23 childhood cancer fighters and survivors ages two-12, walked the runway in the Young World department to benefit two leading pediatric cancer nonprofit organizations, The Ronan Thompson Foundation and Solving Kids’ Cancer.

 

12 year-old DJ Fulano, whom in 2013 President Bill Clinton described as a “9-year-old wonder”, kept the children energized as they walked the runway with his masterful mix of tunes and 13 year old model/actress/singer, Celia Babini served as emcee; both tweens act as Solving Kids’ Cancer Young Ambassadors.

 

Bloomingdale’s generously donated an outfit of his or her choice to each child for the show which they were able to take home afterwards: Some of the brands included Burberry and Chloé. In addition, TOMS shoesgraciously donated a pair of shoes to match each child’s outfit. To complete each look, make-up artists from Clinique made sure the children looked their best.

 

The fun-filled event featured a cookie bar catered by Thomas Preti, a mini photo booth by WhosEvent, as well as magician Didi Maxx who charmed the children with balloon animals and magic tricks before and after the show.

 

10% of all department purchases throughout the weekend benefited the charities.
