CUMMING, Ga. — The stage was set, the music was playing and the "Angels" were lining up for their walk down the runway. It was time for the annual "Runway Angels" fashion show benefiting the Shriners Hospitals for Children at the Polo Golf and Country Club in Cumming.

The Nov. 17 event is sponsored every year by Victoria's Children's Boutique, 405 Peachtree Parkway.

Victoria Mowery, the daughter and granddaughter of the store's owners, was a recipient of the services at the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

The Shriners have done so much to improve the quality of Mowery's life that the family wanted to give something back to the Shriners Hospital.

The annual fashion show, with live and silent auctions, is their way to help raise money for the organization.

Shriners Hospitals for Children help thousands of children across the nation through their orthopedics, burn, spinal cord injury and cleft lip and palate hospitals.

The evening was highlighted by the little "Angels" escorts, known as the "Roadrunners." These Shriners are the dedicated men who drive the children and their families thousands of miles every year to Shriners Hospitals across the nation.

Another special group was the Shriner Clowns from the Yaarab Red Devil Clown of Atlanta. These clowns bring smiles to the children at the hospitals.

Guest speaker Dr. Pete Stasikelis, chief of staff at the Greenville, S.C. Shriners Hospital, was Mowery's surgeon.

He comes to the "Runway Angels" fundraiser every year to share with the audience the work done at the hospitals and the importance of contributions to continue the excellent quality of services provided at the hospitals for the children and their families.

Sponsors included Publix Super Markets Charities and Jim Ellis auto dealership of Atlanta.

Local businesses also donated items or gift cards for the live and silent auctions.

More than $5,000 was raised for the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
