The agenda for the 19th annual Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance’s (OCRFA) Super Saturday was simple: fight back with guilt-free shopping and family fun. The event hosted by Donna Karan, Gabby Karan de Felice and Kelly Ripa brought notable guests including Molly Sims, Rudy Giuliani and wife Judith Nathan and Lorraine Bracco to Nova’s Ark Project Saturday.

Coined the “Rolls-Royce of garage sales,” an enormous tent housed booths from 150 big-name brands including DKNY, Ralph Lauren, VINCE, alice + olivia, Brooks Brothers and many more. In between filling shopping bags with discounted designer pieces, guests were able to enjoy floral crown making with B Floral, psychic readings, hair styling services, a wine bar and an elaborate buffet catered by Sant Ambroeus. Kids kept busy with inflatable attractions, bumper cars, a video game tent and a Ferris wheel.

Exhibitions new to Super Saturday included the Lifestyle Marketplace, featuring clothing, accessories and home goods personally curated by Donna Karan and Gabby Karan de Felice, as well as a live painting performance and auction by New York-based modern artist Jeremy Penn. Luxury designer and experience raffles up for grabs this year ranged from Gucci bags to NY Giants tickets.

Proceeds went towards OCRFA’s mission to fund ovarian cancer research, provide support for families and spread awareness, an important cause to Karan and Ripa who have lost close friends to the disease.
