More than 700 people turned out for a night of glamour and to help breast cancer survivors celebrate their victory against cancer at the fourth annual The Pink Runway fashion show, presented by Loma Linda University Health System Department of Plastic Surgery.
The sold-out event was held Sunday, Sept. 30, at the Riverside Auditorium and Events Center. The models, all breast cancer survivors who had breast reconstruction after mastectomy, showed off the latest fashions from Macy’s. Dr. Subhas Gupta, chairman of Loma Linda University Health System Department of Surgery, praised the models for their courage in fighting breast cancer, and encouraged all women to look into their reconstructive options post-mastectomy. In the picture, the models, in evening and cocktail dresses, make a final walk through the runway at the show’s finale.
