Supportive Shopping

Louisiana Cancer Research Center and Saks Fifth Avenue teamed up again.

Carolyn Elder, Co-Chairs Lauren Wakeman and Barbara Greenberg and Corporate Liasion Sue Singer

 

Saks Fifth Avenue opened its three floors to shoppers eager for high fashion, fine food and libations, lively local music and a social event in support of finding a cure for cancer. Over the past 15 years, the annual “Key to the Cure” weekend has raised more than $2 million for the Louisiana Cancer Research Center.

This year’s fashion show featured clothing by Etro, a bohemian chic line from Italy. The show delighted shoppers, who were further encouraged to peruse the modern styles amongst Saks Fifth Avenue throughout the weekend, when 2% of sales would be donated to cancer research in Louisiana.

Dozens of New Orleans’ finest restaurants provided light bites throughout the venue’s three floors. Entertainment on the first floor was provided by Music Box, ELS on the second floor and the Don Vappie Duo on the third floor.

Co-Chairs were Barbara Greenberg and Lauren Wakeman, with Corporate Liaison Sue Singer.
