Legendary supermodel Cindy Crawford will be at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa next week to help celebrate a $10 million donation to a children's hospital.
The donation was made by local real estate company CEO Wil Cardon, and will help support the Banner Children's Hospital at the medical center, 1400 S. Dobson Road.
Crawford, 43, lost a brother to leukemia when she was 10.
The celebration will be held Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., but sorry -- you're only getting in if you've got an invitation.
