Fashionistas came out to support a Templeton girl battling a rare disease.
A fashion show held at Robert Hall Winery in Paso Robles on Friday raised nearly $1,400 for Cheyenne Willis who has Dystonia, a neurological movement disorder.
Portions of the ticket and auction sales from the night's event went to the Willis family to help raise awareness for Dystonia and help to pay for Cheyenne's future surgeries.
She recently underwent brain surgery, in which doctors implanted a brain pacemaker that has already helped to reverse the effects of the crippling disease.
On June 4, there is another fundraiser being held for Cheyenne at Denner Vineyards in Paso Robles from 6-9pm.
Tickets are $25.
Wine, music, a silent auction and an inspirational speaker who also has Dystonia are all part of the night's festivities.
All of the proceeds will be donated to her family for medical expenses and to raise awareness about Dystonia.
