Show Your Support for MD Anderson When You Attend This Back-to-School Bash

Celebrate another school year with MD Anderson and The Galleria at their eighth annual back-to-school bash. At noon, the Too Cool to Smoke Puppet Show, performed by MD Anderson's puppeteers, educates and encourages children not to smoke as an important cancer prevention message. Check it out at The Galleria on Saturday, August 10th.

The 15-minute puppet show, appropriate for children K-4th grade, addresses the dangers of tobacco use, as well as e-cigarettes and vaping. Children in attendance will receive Promise cards which serve as a commitment to not smoke and to make healthy lifestyle choices. Adults will receive information cards on the dangers of tobacco products, and the industry lures meant to attract children and teens.

At 1 p.m., children, including pediatric cancer patients from the hospital's on-site K-12 accredited school, their siblings and MD Anderson caregivers will highlight this season's most popular back-to-school trends. The show will feature looks from The Galleria's hottest retailers. Come cheer on young cancer survivors as they strut the runway!

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is one of the world’s most respected centers devoted exclusively to cancer patient care, research, education, and prevention. Come support a worthy mission when you attend this event!

There is limited seating at the fashion show, however, reserved seating is available at $10 per person and $25 a family and includes swag bags full of Galleria retailer goodies. All donations directly benefit MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital. For more information, visit
