With Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas and "The Twilight Saga" actress Ashley Greene, Orlando attorney Mark NeJame and his wife, Josie, brought some big celebrities to their recent Runway to Hope signature fundraiser for childhood cancer research. But the biggest eye-opener was how much money they raised - over $700,000 and still counting.

The Runway to Hope Spring Fashion Soiree, held Saturday at the Rosen Shingle Creek, has become one of the region's top fundraising events in only its third year, drawing more than 1,600 people.

All proceeds go to pediatric oncology programs at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Florida Hospital for Children and Nemours Children's Hospital.
