BREAKING NEWS from The Recessionista Sales’ Radar System: Tonight, Wednesday June 29th, modaCYCLE and Lion’esque Media are sponsoring a charity fashion auction to benefit Gilda’s Club New York City, hosted by Alex McCord at The Carlton Hotel. If you’re in New York City, you might want to check this one out. Alex McCord is one of the bright spots of the frequently dreadful, always full of cat fighting, Real Housewives of New York City. This event is to benefit the Cancer Charity sponsored by Gilda’s Club, named for comedienne Gilda Radner who lost her heartbreaking battle with Cancer. If you would like to attend, you may RSVP via the Charity Happenings site up until 2pm EST. Admission at the door without an RSVP will depend on the capacity of the venue.
Dresses are being donated by Nanette Lepore, Charles Nolan, Tracy Reese, Chado Ralph Rucci, Araks, Malan Breton, Loris Diran, Nima Taherzadeh, Kaelen, and Tara St. James. They will be auctioned off during the event, with all proceeds going to support the charity.
Since opening in 1995, Gilda’s Club New York City has offered a place where men, women and children living with cancer – and their families and friends – can join together to build social and emotional support as a supplement to medical care. This is a worthy cause that just happens to offer some great fashion deals too. A winning combination.
