MAIN LINE TODAY FASHION SHOW FOR CHOP
Main Line Today Magazine and TV personality Jen Su hosted a fashion show at Rosalie Wayne, to benefit Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s upcoming Parkway Run and Walk on September 24th.
The Philly native and Philadelphia Film Society Board Director, Jen Su found inspiration for the fashion show through her son, Michael Levin, who has been a 3-year cancer patient at CHOP for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and Avascular Necrosis.

“Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is excited about our upcoming annual Parkway Run & Walk that supports breakthrough pediatric cancer research and care at our Cancer Center,” said Kevin McMahon, Senior Director, Peer to Peer & Community Fundraising at CHOP.
Definitely a Runway sensation, but looks dangerous if you fell.

“We are grateful to Main Line Today, Jen Su and Team Michael for hosting this fashion fundraiser to benefit CHOP’s Cancer Center, bringing further awareness to the Parkway Run & Walk event on Sunday, September 24. It is through fundraising efforts like these that we can hope to one day conquer childhood cancer.”
