On Saturday, October 18, 2014, Glam-A-THON™ hosted its annual signature event, the Glam Doll Strut. Participants were decked out in their most fabulous outfits and sashayed along a 1/4 mile walk, working to impress the celebrity judges with their attire, skits and team name for a Glam-A-THON™ crown. The four teams that raised the most funds were crowned Glam-A-THON™ 2014 Glam Queens and Glam Kings.

“It has been a thrilling October for Glam-A-THON with another very successful Strut under our belts to assist local women in South Florida affected by breast cancer,” said Tammy Gail, ten-year breast cancer survivor and founder of Glam-A-THON™. “Through the outstanding efforts of the community, we are very excited to add another $70,000 to our ongoing donation to Broward Health Foundation, bringing the total donated since 2011 to $336,000. We look forward to seeing a huge turnout at the Strut next year in downtown Fort Lauderdale on October 17th, 2015. And until then, Stay Sassy!”
