Albany -- Models will hit the runway in Albany Saturday night to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

The clothing store "Blush" organized a night full of fashion and entertainment.  It's the first-ever "Catwalk for the Cause."

There will be a silent auction and live music.

Organizers say cancer affects so many people, and they wanted to help.

"All of the money we raise at Catwalk for the Cause will go to advocacy research.  The money goes to clinical trials," said Marci Prisant of the American Cancer Society.

"The American Cancer Society is something that's very near and dear to us.  Everyone knows somebody that's affected by this disease, and we just really want to raise some money and raise some awareness," said Blush Co-Owner Kate Henry.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Saturday night at the state theatre in downtown Albany. The fashion show begins at 7:30 p.m.

There will also be a cash-bar.  All proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.

For more information, call Blush at (229) 439-0332.
