May 16 Super Saturday L.A. event to benefit ovarian cancer research
Super Saturday Los Angeles, the celeb-studded daylong event that raises funds to combat ovarian cancer, is returning for its sophomore stand at Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar on May 16.
Rachel Zoe, Rodger Berman, Molly Sims and Scott Stuber, hosts of last year’s event (which raised $600,000 for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund), are set to reprise their roles for this year’s six-hour slate of shopping, eating and family-oriented activities.
The shopping side of things involves deeply discounted (as in up to half off retail) prices on designer apparel for men, women and children, as well as beauty products, jewelry and accessories, with net proceeds going to the OCRF. Among the labels in the mix this year are: French Connection, Trina Turk, James Perse, Kitson, Elyse Walker Los Angeles, Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, Happy Socks, Rachel Zoe, LeSportsac and Kenneth Cole.
Other indulgences on offer include: complimentary hair styling by Matrix, makeup applications by Mary Kay, manicures by Alex and Ani Charity by Design, sunscreen applications courtesy of L’Oreal, dream interpretation sketches, psychic medium readings, book signings and a photo booth.
Activities for the little ones include face-painting, Nerf wars, interactive story times and vintage arcade games, while not-so-little ones will be able to practice their swing on a golf simulator or hone that skyhook via a double-shot basketball game. There will even be a pet park on premises for any four-legged family members in the mix.
Oh, and we’re told there will be plenty of food options on hand as well, including a full lunch buffet (by Asa Meza), tray-passed bites, snacks, wine, cocktails and desserts.
Super Saturday L.A., hosted by Rachel Zoe, Rodger Berman, Molly Sims and Scott Stuber, May 16, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., 3201 Airport Ave., Santa Monica. General admission $150. Additional details, including ticket purchasing information, are available online.
