Los Angeles, CA (April 7, 2014) – Rachel Zoe and Molly Sims with their husbands Rodger Berman and Scott Stuber will host Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s 1st Annual Super Saturday LA.

“I am so honored to be hosting the first ever Super Saturday Los Angeles with my husband, Rodger and my dear friends, Molly Sims and Scott Stuber,” says co-host Rachel Zoe. “Super Saturday has raised millions of dollars for OCRF, and I couldn’t be more proud to help in the fight against ovarian cancer.”
Super Saturday, OCRF’s fun-filled, family-oriented fundraiser, will offer premier fashion for women, men and kids plus beauty, jewelry, accessories and home items for up to half off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price with net proceeds supporting OCRF’s research grants. Once dubbed “the Rolls Royce of garage sales” by the New York Times, guests will get designer deals from the likes of Versace, Kate Spade SATURDAY, James Perse, Rachel Pally, Trina Turk, Erin by ERIN Featherston, Kenneth Cole, David Meister, Hudson Jeans, Cosabella and many more. Other products will include home goods, men’s products, children’s clothing and toys, cutting-edge electronics and pet products.
In addition to the deeply-discounted designer shopping, OCRF’s Super Saturday LA will offer guests an afternoon of indulgence and fun including: At Home with JC Penney where guests can relax and enjoy refreshments, cooking demonstrations by actress and “Dinner at Tiffani’s” host Tiffani Thiessen, photo keepsakes and activities for the whole family; L’Oreal Paris Beauty Suite where attendees can pamper themselves with a manicure or professional make-up application; complimentary blowouts at the pop-up DreamDry Salon, co-founded by Rachel Zoe and marketing expert Robin Moraetes; a carefully curated compilation of vintage and modern pre-loved luxury clothing and accessories by Style icon and famed founder of Decades Inc, Cameron Silver, who will also use his impeccable taste and outrageous sense of fun to help guests take the perfect selfie; and much more.
There will be activities, games and arts and crafts galore for children at the first annual Super Saturday LA event. Parsons professor and fashion designer Rob Younkers and Elle’s Creative Director Joe Zee will bring their highly successful Stitched Fashion Camp to OCRF’s Super Saturday LA, bringing the fashion design experience to life and working with teens and children at the event to design and style one-of-a-kind shirts while sharing their inside knowledge of fashion. Local LA charity P.S. ARTS will host amazing activities for kids modeled on their incredible “Express Yourself” fall event. Duff’s Cakemix, founded by celebrity chef and television personality, Duff Goldman, will also be on-site with an interactive design bakery and a DIY cupcake decorating station for kids.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of this special event that benefits such an important cause. From shopping and cooking demonstrations to arts and crafts, it is truly an event the whole family can enjoy,” says host Molly Sims. “My family and I are looking forward to spending the day with everyone who comes out to support Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.”
