The Importance of Raising Awareness

Whether you are a mother, daughter, sister, brother, friend, or coworker…cancer affects us all. That includes two local celebrities who have recently been impacted by this terrible disease, which led them to team with the American Cancer Society for the 6th annual “Couture for the Cause” fashion show this fall. Melissa Wilson has graciously agreed to serve as the Honorary Chair, and Michele Fisher is generously offering her talents to host the event as our emcee.

Honorary Chair for this year’s event is Emmy award winning co-anchor of Fox 26 Morning News, Melissa Wilson. Melissa says, “As a medical reporter, I often see first-hand how local patients are impacted by cancer. It touches everyone…from every walk of life. And recently the disease hit home for me. Just a kindergartener, my own little boy Caleb was diagnosed with leukemia. He’s still so young…but he wants to help prevent others from suffering from cancer. It’s been a tough life lesson for us all in learning the importance of helping raise awareness and funds.”

Couture for the Cause

Emcee for the event is former Houston Radio personality and voice talent and actor, Michele Fisher. Michele says, “My dad and my grandmother are both cancer survivors, and one of my closest friends just passed away from the disease. Seeing my friend, who is close to my age, lose his battle to pancreatic cancer was very eye opening. I now know firsthand how ugly this disease can be. His struggle inspired me to do all I can to help raise awareness and money for research.”

The American Cancer Society and Wealth Design Group join together for the 6th Annual Couture for the Cause “A White Haute Affair” on October 17, 2015 at the home of Randy and Brenda Bartley. The evening will feature an unforgettably creative fashion show. Dress code–sizzling “white hot”–all white attire! Everyone is invited to join as a sponsor or donor. A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are still available–please call for details. And tickets sell quickly…don’t wait until the last minute and miss this fabulous event!
