Taylor Mathews, an Edgemont resident, and her mother, Susan, founded the nonprofit Tay-Bandz in 2003 to help raise money to eradicate pediatric cancer.
Unfortunately Taylor, who died in 2008 at the age of 16 from cancer, did not live to see a cure. However, her mother and many other Edgemont and Scarsdale community members are still fighting for Taylor. One of their fights, "Runway to Remember," will take place Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Chase Park.
The event will be a fashion show of Rothman's and LF's 2011 spring lines. The models will be Scarsdale and Edgemont students.
Tickets to the show are $10 and t-shirts will be on sale for $20. A t-shirt-ticket package is available before the event for $20. People who purchase tickets will also get free pizza from Villa Roma, a free coffee from Dunkin' Donuts and a water bottle from Lange's Deli.
All proceeds go to Tay-Bandz. LF Stores is also donating 10 percent of its earnings for the day to Tay-Bandz.
"After the tragedy that I have been through, if we could spare one life it would be worth it," said Susan Mathews.
