The Woman’s Hospital of Texas helped raise $52,000 for the March of Dimes during the hospital’s largest fundraiser. Approximately 500 attendees came together all for a shared mission to improve the health of precious babies. The Woman’s Hospital of Texas 13th Annual Labor Day Luncheon and Style Show, emceed by KTRK ABC 13 News Anchor Ilona Carson and co-chaired by The Woman’s Hospital of Texas CEO Ashley McClellan and Suzan Deison, president of the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce, featured fall fashion trends from image consultant Rebecca Matthews and a peek at the trendiest styles in an always crowd-pleasing runway show styled and produced by Todd Ramos.
This year’s featured speaker was Danielle Busby, who delivered the only surviving set of all-girl quintuplets in the United States at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas in 2015. Born at just 28 weeks gestational age, the Busby quintuplets, Danielle and her husband, all received support from the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program at the hospital. “We’re proud to support the March of Dimes’ compassionate care and advocacy for babies born prematurely and their families,” said McClellan. “Yes, this event’s a fundraising effort, but more importantly we’re here to celebrate a decades-long partnership between The Woman’s Hospital of Texas and the March of Dimes. Because of it, Danielle can speak about her five healthy, happy toddlers. Danielle Busby, her husband Adam, their six-year-old daughter Blayke and the quintuplets star on the TLC cable channel series, “Outdaughtered.” The network filmed Blayke and her two cousins walking the runway during the fashion show for an episode for the show’s second season, which premieres in November.
In addition to seeing reality TV happen live, luncheon guests purchased raffle tickets and raised $16,500 in 15 minutes on-site at the event. Three lucky attendees took home luxury gifts donated by fashion design house Elaine Turner and jewelry design house Kendra Scott. Dozens of other attendees went home with chic door prizes generously provided by Houston-area boutiques and attendees went home with chic door prizes generously provided by Houston-area boutiques and spas.
All of the luncheon guests had the opportunity to power shop in the Boutique Bazaar, a pop-up market of 25 vendors featuring Houston-exclusive retail favorites Trés Chic, French Cuff Boutique, BB1 Classic, Betty Audish Exotic Handbags, Mitra Tummino Studio and Shopaholic Sanctuary. Ten percent of the proceeds from items purchased at the Boutique Bazaar was donated to the March of Dimes Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Family Support Program at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas, the only program of its kind in the Houston area.

The NICU Family Support Program, launched in 2011, offers information and comfort to families during the hospitalization of their newborn, during the transition home, and in the event of a newborn loss, as well as professional development for NICU staff. The program at Woman’s has helped more than 6,200 Houston-area families since its inception. “This year was yet another fantastic event hosted by The Woman’s Hospital of Texas,” said Darcie Wells, Greater Houston Market executive director. “Our partnership in the NICU Family Support Program is incredibly important to the March of Dimes, and we love honoring that partnership at this event. Not only is it a fun event for the women of Houston, but it allows us to serve the families that are affected by premature birth or birth defects at a time when they need it most.”
