Inspired Looks. Inspiring Cause.

The Runway is the signature event of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Daisy Days campaign. This lunchtime fashion show, curated by top regional boutiques and designers, will be prerecorded and shown on a screen at the Mann Center, an outdoor amphitheater. These up-to-the-minute looks are modeled by local celebrities and hospital patients and supporters. The event also features a trunk show offering one-of-a-kind goods and an exclusive fashion-focused silent auction.
