Designers and costumers, as well as wardrobe employees from shows on the Las Vegas Strip volunteered their time and creative energies to help raise funds for childhood cancer treatment for Nevada’s children. Funds from the event will go to the Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada, the state’s only pediatric cancer treatment center that accepts patients with or without medical insurance, and St. Baldrick’s Foundation which raises money for childhood cancer research.
