St Anthony's Hospital Foundation

Posted by: Updegraff Laser Vision in News

At Updegraff Laser Vision we believe in giving back and being involved with our community. Yesterday, Dr. Steve Updegraff participated in one of his favorite events, the annual St. Anthony’s Hospital Fashion show. “Passport to Fashion” had fashions presented by White House/Black Market and Sacino’s with all proceeds benefiting programs and services at St. Anthony’s Hospital.

Dr. Updegraff sported two different looks as he strutted down the runway during the event held at the Club at Treasure Island. We had an amazing time giving back to this wonderful cause. Thank you to everyone who participated.
