The American Cancer Society’s Couture for the Cause of Mont­gomery County Moonlight in Milan fundraiser gala was recently held at The Club at Carlton Woods . More than 200 attendees dressed in their finest and came out to support the cause.

The pinnacle of the evening was the fashion show of this season’s looks, from fun and casual to festive and formal, provided by Macy’s and vibrantly modeled by cancer survivors in celebration of their victories against the disease. The heartwarming and inspirational show provided a look at the true strength and beauty of surviving cancer. Guests also enjoyed signature bites, entertainment and camaraderie.

Guest speakers included event sponsor, Mike Nesbit, president of MW Cleaners, and community icon and honorary chair for this year’s gala, Theresa Roemer – both cancer survivors who shared their stories of fear, challenges and triumph with the crowd. The event also included a series of fundraising enhancers, including an ongoing raffle for the this year’s top prize of an exquisite one-of-a-kind tanzanite and pavé diamond ring valued at approximately $27,000, donated by Mark Pharo Jewelers.

Proceeds from the event will go directly to American Cancer Society to fund patient programs and continue the fight against cancer through research, prevention and awareness. Thanks to the research and commitment from the American Cancer Society, cancer will become “last season.”
