With summer behind us, fall fashions are making their much anticipated appearance. Encinitas-based nonprofit, Conner’s Cause for Children, will be embracing the arrival of autumn with their 4th Annual Conner’s Cause for Children Benefit Luncheon, Boutique Shopping, and Live Fashion Show – Fall into Fashion. The event will be hosted by award-winning journalist Sandra Mass of KUSI-TV, who will welcome guests to an afternoon of fine cuisine, a unique shopping experience, and a chic runway show. Proceeds will benefit San Diego County families seeking medical treatment for children with life-threatening illnesses or injuries.

Connor’s Cause for Children was founded by 92130 couple John and Judy Champ, whose son Connor succumbed to a battle with cancer at the age of four. Connor’s family was inspired to create a nonprofit that could raise money to help other families in his memory.
