JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Some familiar faces will hit the runway at this year’s Runway to Cure on Thursday, May 26, at St. Bernards Auditorium, 505 E. Washington Ave. in Jonesboro.

About two dozen women, all breast cancer survivors, will model two outfits each at the 10th anniversary of the style show.

Among those modeling the season’s best outfits from Dillard’s will be many who taken part in Runways over the last decade.

Models will include Sandy Adcock, Brunilda Anderson, Kathy Bacigalupo, Betsy Barrett, Kerri Cooper, Debbie Curtwright, Vanessa Esters, Karen Gallo, Kenna Harrelson, Dana Hayes, Donna Hicks, Diana Holmes, Judy Kemp, Donna Massey, Paula Pickens, Velma Pieri, Beth Quarrels, Linda Ray, Linda Rogers, Darlene Schmidt, Laura Shelton, Mary Alice Smith, Destie West and Danielle Williams.

In addition to the fashion show, this year’s event will feature an intermission video of the “20 things you should say to breast cancer patients” with tips from those who make up a patient’s support system, including doctors, family members and friends.

Tickets for the show are $25 each or $160 for a table of eight.

Proceeds benefit Arkansas Komen for a Cure. The Arkansas Komen affiliate annually awards funds to St. Bernards to help pay for breast health education, mammograms and other breast services for women in Northeast Arkansas.

Breast cancer survivors will be admitted at no charge.

Tickets may be picked up through the St. Bernards Foundation office at (870) 207-2500 or online at stbernardsfoundation.org.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. with dinner served until 6. Models will take to the runway at 6 p.m.
