20th Annual Designer Garage Sale benefits OCRFA.
July 29, 2017: Super Saturday is the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance’s (OCRFA’s) day-long charity shopping event with designer items, a kids’ carnival with activities, and gourmet treats. The annual event is one of the most fashionable and successful fundraising events in the Hamptons. Together, Donna Karan and Liz Tilberis, the late and beloved Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar and President of OCRF created the event in 1998. This year honored the past 20 years of the charity shopping event. Donna Karan has sponsored and hosted the event since its founding, and Kelly Ripa has been a co-host since 2004. In 2016, OCRF merged with Ovarian Cancer National Alliance to become OCRFA, the voice for ovarian cancer.
OCRFA and QVC united once again for “QVC Presents Super Saturday LIVE,” a live broadcast, offering viewers nationwide the chance to purchase premier beauty, jewelry, apparel and electronics at half the manufacturer’s suggested retail price with proceeds to benefit OCRFA. “QVC Presents Super Saturday LIVE” has generated more than $11 million since 2007.
In addition to shopping luxury designers at deep discounts for a great cause, Super Saturday guests were invited to; have their hair styled by Conair hair gurus, experience a Reiki session from Urban Zen, get a mani on Kendra Scott’s manicab, make a flower crown at B Floral, snap a selfie with the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation and Project Lyme, and spin with Northwell Health by hopping on a bike that creates artwork while you ride. The kids were welcomed to Camp Divalysscious, for puppet shows, glitter tattoos, dance parties, musical appearances, and story time for moms, dads, and kids. The most anticipated element of the day was the fashion designer sale featuring discounted merchandise from nearly 125+ prominent participants.
