WAXMAN TEAMS WITH OSCAR: Guests at the May 18 “Collaborating For A Cure” event will not only see a fashion presentation but they will be able to order any favorite looks. Ten percent of their purchases will benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation and 10 percent of the proceeds will go towards funding scientific research towards Waxman’s new Aging and Cancer initiative.
Seventy-five attendees are expected at the luncheon which is being hosted at a private residence on the Upper East Side. Restaurant Associates’ CxRA will be providing the catering and Palm Bay will be offering the wine. Oscar de la Renta Inc., John Varvatos, Roberto Cavalli, Hugo Boss and St. John are some of the designer resources that have donated items for the event. Pamela Morgan and Marion Waxman will serve as this year’s chairwomen.
