Runway to Miracles

And Through the Woods

Judging by Runway to Miracles—a fundraiser fashion show for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital—the western suburbs are populated almost exclusively by impossibly beautiful women and their absurdly adorable offspring.

The Improper was proud to sponsor the event, which was held at the Wellesley Country Club.
It began with cocktails and a gargantuan silent auction, followed by a catwalk presentation starring the stunning moms and their kids. Front and center:

However, the evening’s choicest exchange came when someone asked one of the moms how she’d gotten her kids to participate in the runway show. “Easy,” she answered. “I told them they’d get out of school early—and if they didn’t do it, they’d have to visit my mother-in-law this weekend.”
