“My sister’s going to help me. She’s pretty good at getting me all set up with the special occasions,” Severino said. “My grandmother never misses it for the world.”

They became partners in the fashion show for the first time when Bianca was a 3-year-old Easter Seals child representative. Over the years, the duo has become a crowd favorite.

“Every year we hear it for a month straight. ‘I’m going to be with Stan Boney. I’m going to be this, I’m walking down the aisle with him,'” said Dan Sefcik from Easter Seals.

Severino suffered a hypoxic brain injury shortly after birth. She’s used various Easter Seals programs since she was two.

Now 24, she still uses Easter Seals, making and selling note cards.

Meeting her always begins with a hug and kiss.

“Bianca is a joy. She is lighthearted, she is always smiling, always positive,” said Ruthanne Salreno, the woman in charge at Easter Seals.

The fashion show is scheduled to begin around 1 p.m. following a social hour and luncheon.
