“It’s great to see so many people come out for this event,” Arlene Hirschfeld, event honorary chair, said. “Our family has supported National Jewish Health for generations and it is exciting to see so many new faces joining us at this event.” Dr. Goldie Cohen, Faye Demby and Susan Noble were the event co-chairs.  

More than 50 volunteer committee members worked on the event that converted the Mercedes-Benz of Denver’s showroom into a high-fashion runway. The third annual evening fashion show drew a record-number of attendees and showcased couture fashions from New York, London, Paris and Milan.

Some of Denver’s top restaurants provided samplings of their fare while guests enjoyed music and a silent auction before the show which was coordinated by Britt Jackson for Neiman Marcus. The Chotin Foundation was a Runway Sponsor and MDC Group was a Couture Sponsor. See the full list of sponsors.

Founded 124 years ago as a nonprofit hospital, National Jewish Health today is the only facility in the world dedicated exclusively to groundbreaking medical research and treatment of patients with respiratory, cardiac, immune and related disorders.
