BERGDORF’S BATTLES SKIN CANCER: Bergdorf Goodman is doing its part in the battle against skin cancer.
The upscale retailer for the first time has designed a pop-up shop for the third annual Leveraged Finance Fights Melanoma event slated for Tuesday at Rockefeller Center in New York. The shop will offer men’s leather goods, sunglasses, cufflinks, bags and ties from Tom Ford, Santiago Gonzalez, Tod’s, Want Les Eessentiels de la Vie, Barton Perreira, Oliver Peoples, Trianon, Deakin & Francis, and the store’s private label. Bergdorf will donate a percentage of the sales from the shop to Melanoma Research Alliance. The event is hosted by Jeff Rowbottom of KKR and Brendan Dillon of UBS and will be held at the Sea Grill and Summer Garden.
Last year’s event drew over 800 people and raised in excess of $1.2 million for the research organization.
