Fashion 4-A Cause

An insider look at the newest collections from Saks Fifth Avenue

April 28, 2012

Alex Rodriguez was thrilled to join fellow supporting sponsors Beyond Group Travel, Page.713, and Saks Fifth Avenue to present this exciting fundraiser for The Rose on April 28. And we were especially excited to see the response from our community: Our VIP and Preferred Seats sold out before the night of the event, proving once again that Houston knows how to have fun and do good.

Models showed off Saks Fifth Avenue’s hottest new styles under the direction of the uber-talented Todd Ramos, who produced the fashion show. Our silent-auction partners offered something for everyone: The Hotel Granduca donated a Saturday-night stay and Sunday brunch for two; Jesse Fields provided a Houston Astros executive suite for up to 24 sports fanatics; Athré Facial Plastics offered Botox procedures, and The West End Contemporary Art Gallery gave a gorgeous limited-edition giclée. Our special thanks to these organizations and the rest of our generous silent-auction donors: Beyond Group Travel, Canongate Golf, the Houston Rockets, Marsha Anderson Photography, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, The Rose, and Royal Indulgence Boutique.

The funds raised for The Rose will support the group’s commitment to providing diagnostic services and treatment to all women battling breast cancer, regardless of their ability to pay. “When amazing people come together for a good cause amazing work gets done,” said Dorothy Gibbons, CEO of The Rose. “Garrick and the great ARod folks brought so many committed people together, hosted a fun and fabulous event that will provide a full range of life-saving breast cancer screening and diagnostic services including mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies, and access to treatment. On behalf of all the women we will serve, we send many thank-yous to all.”
