With all the pomp and razzle-dazzle of a New York fashion show, a group of Las Cruces supporters had a lot of fun and raised a bunch of money for the fight against birth defects and infant mortality. Steve Chavira hosted the event with the smooth humor of the pro that he is, and special guest Ivonna Bump certainly raised the excitement level during the VIP Pre-Show.

But the ladies who modeled and the stylists who prepared them deserve a great big hand. The runway style show with spotlights and sound went off without a hitch, and the models – all local moms and students and doctors and business owners and managers – exuded the confidence of high-fashion career-level participants. Obviously, the show was the result of a lot of hard work by everyone involved. And why? Every one of these individuals believes whole-heartedly in the war being waged by the March of Dimes.

Another important fund raiser was the March for Babies in Young Park, held April 24. ///
