History of A Walk Among the Stars
Thirty years ago, a handful of women gathered in Phyllis Amato’s
kitchen to dream up a fundraising event like no other: a fashion show
featuring cancer survivors. Unsure if the event would succeed, the community
members found a hotel banquet room small enough to look somewhat full
if they could just scrape together 250 attendees. Within days of the invitations
going out, Phyllis had a very different problem: what do you do when too
many people buy tickets? So began Walk Among the Stars, a unique fashion
show and luncheon which quickly grew into a community-wide celebration
of the life and courage of those who fight cancer – and the hospital
that helps them win. To date, more than $2.2 million for St. Jude's
cancer services has been raised through this inspiring event.
