blankIt’s hot outside and will be hotter on the runway as the Tampa Bay Rays, and their wives and girlfriends, strut the runway to make dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses to benefit the Children’s Dream Fund on Sunday, July 21, 2019. Some special “dream” children will be paired with the Rays to make their runway debut.

There are some new and exiting additions the event this year. Coordinated by local stylist Valerie Romas with One 2 Style U the fashions will be from local boutiques, Jackie Z Style Co. and Bespoke & Co. Guests will enjoy a mini Ball Park & Rec area where there will be interactive games and cocktails. Always a fan favorite is the exclusive meet-and-greet with the Tampa Bay Rays and autograph opportunities. There will be a wide variety of live auction and raffles at the event including a personal closet make-over and shopping spree by Valerie Romas and Jackie Z Style Co. and, as always, the players’ “Favorite Things” baskets.
