Worldwide, 175,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. In the U.S. more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease. Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget is solely dedicated to childhood cancer research, which is why Circus Couture stepped in…to ensure a healthy future for our future.
Circus Couture is a Nevada non-profit organization created in 2010. This “grass-roots” organization focuses on raising money for pediatric cancer care and research. Funds are raised through our annual circus, fashion and art event then granted to The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada is the only clinic in the state that treats kids with cancer, regardless of their family’s ability to pay for services. Over 10,000 children have been treated at the center. They strive to be the community leader in advancing the treatment and prevention of catastrophic diseases in children. To date over 10 million dollars in charity care has been given to Nevada families.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long healthy lives. The research funded by St. Baldrick’s has the potential to impact every kid diagnosed with cancer.
Born with inspiration from performers and employees of shows on the Las Vegas Strip, Circus Couture has grown to include talents from Las Vegas’ most revered fine artists and community leaders. The event features both a silent and live art auction paired with a breathtaking circus spectacle and sensational fashion runway shows.
