DECA Fashion Show To Benefit Meghan McCarthy Research Foundation
Show is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 14 at Tewksbury High.
(Editor's note: The following information was submitted by members of the Tewksbury High DECA program.)
The DECA fashion show is an annual event put on each November by juniors and seniors from the TMHS DECA program. We have fundraised for several organizations in the past such as MDA, but in recent years we have been raising money for the Meghan McCarthy Research Foundation.
Meghan was a very well-known and liked student at TMHS, and she was involved in Field Hockey, Basketball, and DECA. She was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in 2007 (she was 14 years old). Meghan passed away on January 19, 2010 at the age of 17.
The Meghan McCarthy Research Fund at Dana-Farber Institute in Boston was created in 2011 to further research in high grade pediatric brain tumors and to advance the search for a cure for all cancers.
The fashion show is held in the TMHS auditorium, and will be the first big event held in the new auditorium. It is on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 7pm. Funds are raised through ticket sales ($7 each) and through raffles.
