This past weekend, I was invited to attend the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s annual Super Saturday event held at Nova’s Ark Project in the Hamptons. Super Saturday is a great fundraiser filled with fun components that include a designer garage sale, a luxury raffle, a kids’ carnival along with other kids’ activities, a cocktail station, culinary tastings, and more. QVC was the presenting sponsor of the event and it was hosted by Donna Karan and Kelly Ripa. A number of additional celebrities attended including Mark Feuerstein, Rachel Zoe, Gayle King, Joy Behar, June Ambrose, Dennis Basso, Alec & Hilaria Baldwin, Molly Sims, Kelly Rutherford, Brooke Shields, Ali Wentworth, and Joe Zee.
The designer garage sale featured discounted merchandise from over 150 amazing brands such as Ralph Lauren, Armani Exchange, Vince, Milly, Donna Karan, Theory, Alexis Bittar, Elie Tahari, and Club Monaco. While guests shopped, they were also able to enjoy treats and activities that included Fiji Water, Mumm Napa champagne, Antico Noè panini samples, Priv’s braiding bar, trèStiQue’s 5-minute touchups station, flower crown making with B Floral, and more. I loved how there were so many exciting experiences to enjoy!
During the event, QVC broadcasted “QVC Presents Super Saturday LIVE,” a 2 hour segment where people nationwide could purchase apparel, beauty products, jewelry, accessories and home items for half the suggested retail price, with net proceeds going towards OCRF. Later on, the luxury raffle, which featured items from Rebecca Taylor, Flywheel Sports, and David Webb, among others, took place on-site as well.
All in all, Super Saturday raised over $3.4 million for ovarian cancer initiatives. What an incredible accomplishment!
