Bright lights and a runway children won't scare children of Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies.

It's the 11th annual Holiday Fashion Show, Saturday, November 23 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at DuPont Manual High School at 120 W. Lee Street, to benefit the Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies.

More than 80 children with special needs will model clothes from Macy's.

Proceeds from the event will help the center make sure no child is turned away due to finances.

The idea for the fashion show was started by a group of parents in 2003 and the first event drew more than 200 people.

Several dozen volunteers work half the year to plan the event.

Children are escorted on stage by community volunteers.

The event will feature holiday goodies, plus a silent auction.

Macy's is providing discounted clothes for both the girls and boys.

Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $5 for children 6-12.
