Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria teamed up with The Federation to bring women a special morning of fashion, philanthropy and shopping on May 6, 2012. Women who stepped up with a new or increased gift of at least $365 to the annual campaign were invited to come out for a celebration of their impact on the Jewish community.
This unique event gave women the opportunity to learn more about Elie Tahari, Estee Lauder, Stuart Weitzman (to name only a few!)—all famous Jewish designers. Even better, 10 women walked away with a fabulous prize for attending:
Elie Tahari handbag Estee Lauder gift basket Stuart Weitzman shoes Rebecca Minkoff handbag Leslie E. Sandler, Jeweler for Life earrings Marc by Marc Jacobs handbac Diane von Furstenberg handbag Theory blazer Lingerie care package Private learning session with Dr. Erica Brown
What’s better than learning about these designers? Shopping for their pieces! Saks Fifth Avenue is graciously giving 10% of proceeds from any purchases attendees made BACK to The Federation! We look forward to sharing this amount with you soon.
Many women at the event also took part in becoming a Mitzvah Maven. We collected a huge assortment of clothing, to be given to the Interfaith Clothing Center, a center that provides clothing to people in-need—some of whom are clients of our partner agencies, the Jewish Coalition Against Domestic Abuse and the Jewish Social Service Agency.
