The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s fashion show! Please check back to this page in summer 2022 for details on the 2022 Fashion Show. 

The Wishlist by AM Night of Fashion and Fun returns for a full night of fashion, fun, and philanthropy. This event honors Ashley Mortensen, who pioneered her own hand-made clothing line—Wishlist by AM—while battling an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), a lifelong diagnosis. 

Ashley and Adrienne Mortensen host this fun-filled evening while guests enjoy a runway show featuring models with vascular birthmarks, anomalies, and related syndromes (VBARS) like Ashley’s wearing looks from Wishlist by AM. The ticketed event offers attendees music and dancing, dinner and drinks, raffles, comedy by Eric Lyden, and a photographer. Pieces featured in the fashion show will be on sale after the event.
