SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT- Sunday afternoon, young models strutted their stuff on the catwalk for a good reason.

The Sportswear Fashion Show in South Burlington raised money and awareness for the leukemia and lymphoma society.

Along with the fashions, there was also a silent auction and plenty of raffles.

We spoke to one man who said it's events like these that make him feel supported.

"The chapters together has raised millions of dollars which have contributed directly to the disease I have, so they are so supportive and encouraging," said Newton Baker.

Organizers said the proceeds will go towards a bike ride in Montauk, also to raise money for the leukemia and lymphoma society.

That kicks off on May 5th.
