“Wear A Wig” will feature wigs donated by The Wig Emporium of Columbia. Local fashion designs will also be featured in the show with the models wearing tops, skirts, and dresses donated to the American Cancer Society by LaRoque.

“It’s important for women to remember that fashion is about having fun,” said CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg. “Wigs are an every day accessory for a woman with cancer, or any woman, that will bring out the real light that shines from inside them.”

Walking in the show will be local models from Millie Lewis Modeling Agency Columbia, as well as real, every day women who are or have been affected by cancer.

The event will air live on 89.7 WMHK radio. In aid of CFDA, WMHK will be taking all donations that listeners would like to donate to the American Cancer Society.
