Fashion Show Benefits Mothers and Babies Perinatal Network

Fashion took center stage Wednesday night at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in downtown Binghamton.

That's where the second annual Guys and Gals Fashion Gala took place. The event raises money for the Mothers and Babies Perinatal Network. Organizers say the group has lost a substantial amount of state funding and this is one of their major fundraisers of the year. The event showcased spring lines from several local stores and included adult models, young children as well as pregnant moms.

"I think what's really wonderful about it is that it really is a fun event to bring everybody together for a very important cause, supporting the health and wellness of moms, babies and families," says Sharon Chesna, Executive Director of Mothers and Babies Perinatal Network.

Last year organizers say they raised $15,000 from the event, and this year they're hoping to do even better and raise $25,000.
