Melissa Magee emcee's fashion extravaganza at Children's Hospital

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Children's Hospital of Philadelphia held its fashion extravaganza Thursday afternoon.

The runway show and luncheon raises money this year for the Healthier Together initiative.

Through its CAPP+ (Community Asthma Prevention) program, it pays for home repairs to eliminate asthma triggers, reducing the number of asthma attacks and hospital stays for asthmatic children.

Healthier Together also launched CHOP's Food Pharmacy, which provides fresh produce for patient families-in-need.

Melissa Magee served as this year's emcee.

The ballroom at the Hyatt Bellevue was packed as the models had fun strutting down the runway.

Members of the Action News team were there for this great cause, traffic reporter Gina Gannon wore a beautiful gown.

It is a great event and raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for children.
