Fashion a Cure: Emory University’s Winship Cancer Institute in DeKalb County, led by its Friends of Winship fundraising group, recently hosted its seventh annual Fashion a Cure fashion show and luncheon at the St. Regis in Buckhead. Co-chairs Peggy Lientz and her daughters – Shannon Kollme, Mary Kathryn Green and Margaret Anne Masters – gathered a team of volunteers to produce another successful event, which raised over $350,000 for cancer immunology research at Winship. Models in the fashion show included cancer survivors, caregivers, Winship doctors and volunteers. Survivors carried a red rose, caregivers held a yellow rose and Winship faculty carried a white rose. left: The event co-chairs were, from left, Peggy Lientz and her daughters – Shannon Kollme, Mary Kathryn Green, and Margaret Anne Masters.
