The foundation was created by the family of 21-year-old Cassie Hines, whose four year battle with cancer ended this spring. The foundation’s focus is to raise awareness and financial support for young cancer patients aged 16-30 to attend cancer camps and support groups.
WXOU’s fundraiser event is a shoe fashion show and silent auction, set for 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 29, at Eisenhower High School located at 6500 25 Mile Rd. Advance tickets are $20 and include a fundraiser t-shirt. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10. All proceeds benefit the Cassie Hines Shoes Cancer Foundation.
Hines loved shoes and fashion, an interest that sparked the foundation’s motto, “Changing lives, one step at a time.” It has also inspired several events and fundraisers such as the recent “Race in These Shoes” walk/ run and the upcoming “Dance in these Shoes” event.
Food for the Cassie Hines Shoe Fashion Show will be provided by Bad Brad’s BBQ. Event sponsors include Catching Fireflies, ShoeStrings Children’s Shoes, Funky Frog Children’s Resale Boutique, American Gymnastics, Olive Garden, and Batteries Plus of Fenton.
