Evidently Mother Nature didn’t take time off for spring vacation. At least she had the good manners to hold off dumping rain, hail, straight-line winds, tornadoes and locusts… okay, forget that last one… until the Children’s Cancer Fund model reveal took place at NorthPark Center this afternoon.
With former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Babe Laufenberg serving as host/emcee, Cowboys quarterback legends/CCF Honorary Co-Chairs Troy Aikman and Dak Prescott were front and center autographing personalized Dallas Cowboys footballs for each of the munchkin models, who were revealed.
And the models lived true to the W.C. Fields‘ most feared “scene-stealing” reputation of their predecessors with one doing a selfie with Troy/Dak and another wearing a Cowboys jersey boasting 4.
The class of 2023 who will strutting their stuff on the runway at the Hilton Anatole on Friday, April 21, include the following: River Bray, Hannah Bisharah, Azyriah Brown, Leanna Burnside, Miles Dagelewicz, Ricardo Guerra, Monique Hardin, Thiago Hernandez, Landrie Lay, Emma Lee, Amari Lemon, Addalyn Lovett, Drew Lowsley, Burson Marable, Aiden Norris, Stellan Piggott, Avery Reyes, Robert Rodriguez, Alina Rojas, Peyton Scraver and Jaxon Starling.
Co-Chairs Heather Randall and Blake Stephenson played the roles of sideline assistants, handing off the balls to Dak to pass to the youngsters, as CCF Executive Director Jennifer Arthur gave each of the little ones a hug before receiving a NorthPark gift package plus a $200 NorthPark gift certificate.
