Charitable PANDA event raises funds for children’s research center

Posted

The Phoenix Women’s Board of the Steele Children’s Research Center — also known as PANDA — recently held its annual “Children Helping Children” Fashion Show.

For more than two decades, PANDA has collaborated with the Steele Children’s Research Center to fund a critical need.

This year, PANDA’s goal was to support the Steele Children’s Research Center’s overall commitment to medical research to find solutions to childhood disorders and diseases.

The group’s inspiration came from Dr. Fayez Ghishan’s quote, “If I spend an hour with one child, I help one child. If I spend one hour in the lab, I help 1,000 children.”

This year’s theme was “Field of Dreams” and the event was held at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, in downtown Phoenix. Fox Restaurant Concepts returned as the title sponsor.

PANDA supporters not in attendance were able to participate by watching a live stream of the event.
