This past July, Donna Karan and Kelly Ripa hosted Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s (OCRF) 18th annual Super Saturday NY, a world famous garage sale sponsored by QVC.
OCRF’s Super Saturday NY was a fun-filled day of shopping and activities, where guests of all ages made their own floral crowns, indulged in gourmet treats, got manicures and styling touchups, enjoyed the kids’ carnival, and all for a great cause, as all net proceeds go directly to OCRF and its programs.
Over 2,000 people attended Super Saturday including supporters and their families, fashion lovers and a bevy of celebrity guests were in attendance, including Rachel Zoe, Molly Sims, Joe Zee, June Ambrose, Alec & Hilaria Baldwin, Dennis Basso, Jonathan Cheban, Mayor Rudolph and Judy Giuliani, Miss USA Olivia Jordana, Gayle King, Brooke Shields, and Kelly Rutherford.
The daylong shopping event dubbed “the Rolls-Royce of garage sales”, raised over $3.4 million and featured discounted merchandise from nearly 150 prominent participants including: Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Vince, Alexis Bittar, Bonpoint, Henri Bendel, Milly, Theory, Elie Tahari, alice + olivia, Scoop NYC, Vilebrequin, Kiehl’s Since 1851, L’AGENCE, Calypso St. Barth, Shoshanna and Zimmermann.
“It’s an incredible way for the design community to give back to a cause that has or will touch every one of us. Raising money for OCRF, while creating a day of joy and fun for an entire family is what the Super Saturday community is all about!!! It’s an honor to be a part of it for these last 17 years,” Shoshanna Gruss said.
Also, for the eighth consecutive year, the “Designers A to Zoe” booth by Rachel Zoe featured a compilation of pieces from her favorite luxury designers including DSQUARED2, Giambattista Valli, Prabal Gurung, Jenni Kayne, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney Kids, ZAC Zac Posen and Marc Jacobs.
“This event holds a special place in my heart as I lost my mother to the disease, and I love attending every year to lend my support. It’s an incredible day, and any way I can help to find a cure, gives me great pleasure,” Amanda Uprichard said.
