Local celebs put on the glitz for SwedishAmerican's Cancer Center


Local reporters, anchors, health professionals, and even Rockford's fire chief strutted down the runway Friday afternoon to support SwedishAmerican's new Regional Cancer Center.

WREX's own Katie Nilsson and Eric Wilson joined former 13 News anchor Dani Maxwell, anchors from WTVO and WIFR, State Senator Steve Stadelman, SwedishAmerican CEO Dr. Bill Gorski, and Fire Chief Derek Bergsten in modeling clothes from That Boutique and Sturtevant's.

However, the main focus of the annual Puttin' on the Glitz luncheon is to honor those who have been touched by cancer. The Betty Henry Award honored an individual or organization who contributed their time, effort, and talent to the cancer center and its patients.

The new cancer center is located on N. Bell School Road.
