Flashes of Hope and
The Cleveland Cavaliers Better Halves
Fashion Event

According to their mission statement, "Flashes of Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer and other life threatening illnesses. The portraits, taken by award-winning photographers, help children feel better about their changing appearance by celebrating it. For families of terminally ill children, it's especially important to have a portrait that preserves forever the beauty, grace and dignity of their child."

Flashes of Hope teamed up with the Cleveland Cavalier's Better Halves - the wives and girlfriends of the players and coaches - to raise funds and awareness for the organization.

In addition to an enticing array of food and beverages the night included a fashion show. Cavs legends Campy Russell and Austin Carr graced the runway as did current players Mo Williams, Daniel Gibson, JJ Hickson, Anthony Parker and more. That night, however, they were not the stars.

The stars were clearly the young children who walked the runway. These young children all have or have had cancer. As each one came out and the huge crowd saw them, you would have thought it was Lebron James himself. The crowd went wild with each and every child!

The players and their "Better Halves" got a lot of attention and a lot of applause but it was nothing compared to the enthusiastic greeting the children received.

The Cavaliers Better Halves presented a silent auction with items donated by the players. There was also a raffle with high-end pieces from Mann Jewelry and Louis Vitton. It was an emotional and remarkable event appropriately named "Best Event of the Year" for the past three years.

Proceeds from the event will support Flashes of Hope and The Children's Tumor Foundation.
