Bayhealth to Host Seventh Runway of Hope

The Bayhealth Cancer Institute’s Survivorship Program has been helping cancer survivors enjoy full and productive lives since its inception in 2012. Runway of Hope, an annual fashion-based fundraiser that includes a runway fashion show featuring professional models, elegant luncheon and silent auction, is a driving force behind the program’s positive impact on the lives of hundreds of cancer survivors in our community.

Bayhealth will host its seventh annual Runway of Hope fundraiser on Friday, Aug. 4, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Baywood Greens in Long Neck, Delaware. The event is open to the public and all proceeds support the Survivorship Program.

The Runway of Hope was inspired by founder Susan Chinnici’s vision. As a member of the Bayhealth Cancer Institute Board of Directors, Chinnici had a desire to inspire others to give in support of those with cancer. Along with the Bayhealth Cancer Institute’s Runway of Hope Fundraising Committee, Chinnici helped create the Runway of Hope Fashion Show and Luncheon in 2011. Each year the event has grown. “Members of the committee are really hard workers and very generous,” explains Chinnici. “It’s exciting to see how the Runway of Hope has evolved over the last several years, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!”

Tickets to attend this year’s event are $100 per person. Included in the ticket price are hors d’oeuvres, a plated lunch, admission to the fashion show and silent auction, and a gift bag. The deadline to register is Wednesday, July 19.

“All proceeds from the Runway of Hope event go directly to support cancer patients as they transition from cancer treatment to cancer survivorship,” said John Shevock, FACHE, FACMPE, senior director of Operations, Oncology Service Line and executive director of the Bayhealth Cancer Institute. In 2016, the Runway of Hope event raised more than $75,000 for the Bayhealth Cancer Survivorship Program. “The Runway of Hope Fundraising Committee members are the ambassadors in the community for our cancer survivorship program and their support is truly remarkable,” Shevock said.
