Kelly Ripa Raises Awareness For Ovarian Cancer
The Hamptons were all a buzz this past weekend as top designers took part in the 10th Annual QVC “Super Saturday” event. Hugo Boss, Cole Haan, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, and Valentino all participated in the “designer garage sale” as described by event organizers by donating high-end clothing to benefit The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). Kelly Ripa returned for her third year as guest host of the event.
This was an important event to raise awareness to a deadly disease. Ovarian cancer is described as the silent killer and often not given the appropriate attention it deserves in comparison to other women’s health issues. Over 20,000 women in the United States will develop ovarian cancer this year according to the organization. On a lighter note, Ripa was excited to be part of the event and said, “I am thrilled to be co-hosting for the third year in a row, what better way to spend a day than shopping and contributing to a wonderful cause!.” Hardly a convincing statement to encourage others to learn more, but we appreciate her perky enthusiasm nonetheless. All proceeds from the live event were donated to OCRF.
