Scottsdale Fashion Square hosted An Evening of Luxury in the Neiman Marcus wing Sept. 29 to support the fight against ovarian cancer. The exclusive cocktail reception and shopping event featured culinary selections by James Beard Award-winning Chef Alex Stratta of Match Restaurant & Cocktails and signature cocktails by Rattle & Rum Cocktail Catering. The Ferrari Band provided live entertainment throughout the evening.
Participating retailers included Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Escada, CH Carolina Herrera, Diane Von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo and Salvatore Ferragamo. A percentage of the evening’s sales from participating retailers was donated to Colleen’s Dream Foundation to support research in early ovarian cancer detection.
During the event, Colleen’s Dream Foundation co-founders Nicole and Billy Cundiff presented local research establishment Translational Genomics Research Institute with a $100,000 check for their ongoing research in ovarian cancer treatments.
Colleen’s Dream Foundation is a qualified nonprofit organization dedicated to funding investigational scientific research with the primary goal of developing an accurate early detection test for ovarian cancer. Currently, no such test exists, making ovarian cancer the deadliest of all gynecological cancers.
Since its launch in 2012, Colleen’s Dream Foundation has garnered unfathomable support and has quickly become the largest privately funded ovarian cancer-specific nonprofit in the state of Arizona.
