If you love fashion, children, and making a difference in the community-A Jewel in the Desert, PANDA’s annual luncheon and fashion show is the event for you. Taking place on Saturday April 14th at the JW Marriot Camelback Inn, the annual fundraiser is a sell out every year and it’s easy to see why! This year, 55 child models will be strutting their stuff down the runway while guests sip on cocktails, enjoy a gourmet lunch, and partake in one of the BEST silent auctions and raffles around. Speaking of silent auction goodies, PANDA has been teasing a few of the hot ticket items up for grabs on their social media. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram (@pandagives) to see what guests will be able to bid on including a full size custom kid’s beach themed playhouse (see pic below), a Catalina Island getaway, an Hermes watch, 4th of July in Telluride, and a VIP Nascar experience to name a few!
This year’s event will benefit children with epilepsy and the funds raised on April 14th will support discovery processes that lead to treatments and cures for devastating childhood diseases such as epilepsy.
ABOUT PANDA —
The Phoenix Women’s Board of the Steele Children’s Research Center, affectionately known as PANDA, supports discovery processes to improve treatments and cures for devastating childhood diseases. The strong and unique partnership between the PANDA members and the researchers and physicians at the Steele Center has made it possible for us to embody our name, People Acting Now Discovering Answers and raise over $9 million to improve treatments and cures for devastating childhood diseases. This research project will explore both the basic science and clinical aspects of epilepsy with an emphasis on children diagnosed as infants or at an early age. The goal is to develop a new paradigm for treatment through research, including whole genome sequencing, examination of structural brain disorders, and exploration of metabolic issues.
“For 2018, our goal is to support The Steele Center’s research to solve the heartbreaking mysteries associated with epilepsy in very young children,” Jacque Linaman, PANDA board president said.
