22nd Annual Beyond the Rainbow Luncheon & Fashion Show Benefiting the Children's Cancer Fund


Children undergoing cancer treatment at Children’s Medical Center Dallas, as well as survivors of cancer, will be wearing big smiles and a new outfit from Dillard’s as they walk down the runway for the 22nd Annual Beyond the Rainbow Luncheon & Fashion Show Friday, April 23 at the Hilton Anatole. They will be escorted by celebrities such as Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, Mike Modano, Randy White, Drew Pearson, Gymnast Nastia Luikin, Daryl Johnston, Janine Turner, Rudy Gatlin, Kellie Rasberry, Dallas SWAT Team, Dallas Firefighters, The Toothfairy and Barney. With the children’s excitement of wearing their new outfit they selected and walking with their favorite celebrity, this luncheon provides a heartwarming experience and is aptly themed: Bright Stars. Bright Hope.

Chaired by Marisa Huckin and Adelina Kainer, the event begins with a VIP champagne reception and silent auction. Honorary Chairmen Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman and the rest of the celebrity escorts will be there to mingle with the guests and sign autographs for the children.

Afterwards the 1,000 guests will proceed to the ballroom where the Mistress and Master of Ceremonies Clarice Tinsley and Steve Eagar from Fox 4 News will kick-off the luncheon and fashion show produced by Rhonda Sargent Chambers. And after the runway show, Janine Turner and daughter Juliette will conclude the event with a duet!

Proceeds benefit the Children’s Cancer Fund (CCF) which was founded in 1982 by a coalition of parents whose children were receiving cancer therapy at Children’s Medical Center Dallas. CCF is dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer by providing funds to the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Medical Center Dallas and The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas for programs and research relating to the prevention, treatment and cure of childhood cancers and to improving the quality of life for pediatric cancer patients and their families.

A table of ten is $1,250; individual ticket is $150. Sponsorships available from $50,000 to $1,500. $100 Angel tickets also available – they are donated to the families of children participating in the event who are financially unable to purchase a ticket.
