Attended by over 1000 guests, the “Key to the Cure Shopping Weekend Kickoff Gala,” which benefited the Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium, started off with a bang featuring “Supper-by-the-bite” with refreshments from over 30 of New Orleans’s finest eateries, libations from the Goldring Family Foundation and Republic National Distributing Company.

Musical entertainment was provided on all three levels of the store, and Marvin K., founder and creative director for Aquatalia (a luxury fashion footwear company), made a special appearance.

Guests were greeted by a stunning floral installation designed by the new visual director from New York, Miguel Canlobo. Chaired by Saks Vice President and General Manager Carolyn Elder and Cheryl Mintz, the elegant evening was a fashion bonanza. Betty Kohn served as honorary chair of the evening, and all proceeds of the event went to the cancer research programs of the Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium.
