DANBURY, Conn. -- High school students from the Wooster School in Danbury raised $9,000 for patient care programs at the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center by organizing a fashion show called "Catwalk for a Cure."

The money will be used to provide breast care services, including mammograms, to women in need.

The show was the idea of two juniors, Alexandra Ambrosio of Brewster, N.Y., and Hallie Fuchs of Fairfield, who wanted to raise awareness of breast cancer in their community. They worked for months to organize the event with a committee of 30 fellow students.

“The kids really went all out,” said Robin Righter, development coordinator at the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center in a release. “We are so lucky to have committed young women and men working on our behalf.”

Part of Bridgeport Hospital and the Yale-New Haven Health System, the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center has served more than 20,000 women and their families since it was established in 1999.
