East Coast Starz and the East Coast USA Pageant are extremely excited to announce our partnership with CatWalk4Cancer a non-profit organization raising funds for life-saving pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Attending an upcoming Star Gazer Fashion Event or East Coast USA Preliminary? Show Us Your Ears! We would like as many models in the Star Gazer show and as many contestants in the pageant to participate as possible. CatWalk4Cancer will be attending our tour and selling different styles of “Cat Ear Headbands”! Buy a pair for $20 and put them on to show YOUR support for CatWalk4Cancer! All money collected from the sale of the Cat Ears will go directly to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for research. We are asking models to wear them during the Star Gazer Fashion Show and pageant contestants to wear them during the Parade of Contestants that will kick off our crowning ceremony!
Make a difference!
In May of 2012, our closest friends’ daughter was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia. Over the past two years Tallie endured intense treatment and through a long and difficult battle she is now cancer free.
Watching Tallie throughout her treatment has inspired our families to help other Pediatric Cancer Patients. We’re asking if you will join us in our efforts to raise funds for life-saving pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Without all of the research and funding that had previously been done, we would not have all of the treatment options available as we do today. However, we still have a long way to go…and in our sights, in the not to distant future, we see a CURE for these terrible pediatric cancers …and we know that we will only achieve this goal through funding additional research to develop these new therapies and ultimately a cure. We have created a special online giving page, and we’re hoping our friends, family, and community will help us make a real difference in the fight against this deadly disease.
