The Fashion Show is an annual event that hosts players and coaches who are paired with their significant other or a child participating from the Children’s Dream Fund, an organization that fulfills dreams for seriously ill children. The couples walk the runway and model the season’s newest fashions. The event raises over $100,000 annually for the Children’s Dream Fund. The 2018 event raised $115,000.
The Children’s Dream Fund’s mission statement is: To make dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses living throughout West Central Florida. From puppies to playgrounds, special trips to meetings with celebrities, they help every child referred to them by area hospitals. Rays on the Runway is just one of many special programs that the Rays offer to support the local community. For more information, and tickets click here.
