NC Breast Cancer foundation hosts Model/Runway event as Fundraiser.

For the last 8 years, Focused on a Cure breast cancer Foundation has hosted Piggin’ out for Pink as their annual fundraiser with great success. This year we wanted to do something different in our fundraising efforts. Carolina’s Next Top Model 2017 will take place on October 28th. We did this years ago back in 2011 and it went really well and was a lot of fun!

Directly after each group is photographed on the Hollywood set, they will proceed to the runway where they will be educated on how to walk the runway that night. They will also get pointers on how to impress the judges. There will be four judges on the sideline of the runway. They will determine the contestant scores from their presence on the runway.
