Couture for a Cure will make Washington, D.C. fashion history on May 25, 2010 with legendary New York fashion house DKNY presenting its Spring 2010 collection for the first time in our nation’s capital. The Second Annual Couture for a Cure Runway Show will be at the Kogod Lobby of the Woolly Mammoth Theatre in DC’s vibrant Penn Quarter neighborhood from 6:30 to 10:00 pm to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Sponsored by Microsoft and Niche Media’s Capitol File Magazine and the Glamazon Diaries, this year’s Couture for a Cure will honor former cancer survivors with a runway presentation hosted by master and mistress of ceremonies WJLA News reporter Scott Thuman and Hot 99.5 personality Sarah Fraser.
Couture for a Cure celebrates the triumphs and hurdles of former cancer survivors, who will be honored with a tribute to those lost and a celebration of those who’ve beat cancer. This year’s honorees have contributed greatly to the Washington community through their involvement in philanthropy, entertainment and business. The 2010 Couture for a Cure honorees are Accenture Senior Executive Ken Dineen, Peacock Café owners Shahab and Micky Farivar, the 2009 LLS Man & Woman of the Year Hap Peden and Ari Jones, who raised a combined total of over $200,000 towards LLS, and Jennifer Harlow of the Tigerlily Foundation.
