American Girl Fashion Show®
Styles of Yesterday and Today
Baltimore's 2013 American Girl Fashion Show was a huge success thanks to our wonderful sponsors, models and parents. A special thank you to our Presenting Sponsor, La Cakerie, for the beautiful cupcakes that added a little extra sparkle to the shows. The University of Maryland Children's Hospital and Cool Kids Campaign are grateful for the opportunity to serve Maryland's youngest patients through this wonderful event.

What is American Girl?
The American Girl® brand celebrates a girl’s inner star - that little whisper that encourages her to stand tall, reach high and dream big. We take pride and care in helping girls become their very best today, so they’ll grow up to be the women who make a difference tomorrow. American Girl® Programs, Inc. is proud to partner with Cool Kids Campaign and University of Maryland Children's Hospital to present the American Girl Fashion Show® to raise money for its array of programs to assist kids with cancer. Because sick or healthy, kids are kids! As part of the ongoing commitment to “celebrate girls,” American Girl Programs has generated millions of dollars for worthwhile children’s charities nationwide.
Since its first catalog debuted in 1986, American Girl® has provided inspiring products for each stage of a young girl’s development — from her preschool days of baby dolls and fantasy play through her tween years of self-expression and individuality. Through an array of premium-quality books, dolls, clothes, toys, and accessories, American Girl® has earned the loyalty of millions of girls and the praise and trust of parents and educators. The company has a long-standing commitment to children’s charities nationwide. To date, it has donated more than $87 million in cash and products.
What is an American Girl Fashion Show®?
The American Girl Fashion Show® is a fun-filled afternoon for girls and their families, friends and favorite dolls. It is an innovative way to raise funds for children’s causes. Featuring historical and contemporary fashions for both girls and their dolls, the show comes alive with the host organization’s models. A commentator’s script gives the audience girl-friendly pieces of fashion-related history that tie into the stories of the American Girl characters, as well as insight into how fashion can give girls a way to express their own unique personalities.
Each child receives fun party favors and all guests have the opportunity to purchase event-related souvenirs and have special photographs taken. Audiences come away with terrific memories of their American Girl® experience and positive feelings about helping others in their community.
