"I'm a cancer survivor," said Best Dressed Jackson 2017 Chair Kirby Boteler. "I had pancreatic cancer in 2014 and it’s something that I am personally passionate about."

Taylor Leatherwood, the Marketing Manager for Cathead Distillery, said,

"We want to be a part of anything that contributes to Jackson and you know obviously this is a good cause," said Cathead Distillery Marketing Manager Taylor Leatherwood.

WDBD FOX 40 was one of the sponsors of the event. Mike Sands who has battled cancer was in attendance along with Melissa Faith Payne. 

Loved ones lost to cancer were also remembered. Food was provided by local restaurants.
