For the first time ever, a global fashion company will present this year’s Sizzling Hot Pink Saratoga Hat Luncheon on Fabulous Fillies Day to benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, August 14.
World renowned luxury fashion company Escada, which is celebrating its own 35th anniversary this year, couples the pink-and-white themed party with the company’s own equine upbringing in 1976 to celebrate Saratoga 150.
This year’s luncheon is in honor of Marylou Whitney and will include a discussion on breast cancer led by Larry Norton, MD. NewsChannel 13 Anchor Benita Zahn will emcee the event.
During the event, the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association and The New York Racing Association will donate a combined $10,000 to support BCRF. Silent and live auctions will also bookend the event with fabulous prizes to give away.
Event guests will also be given the opportunity to shop at the beautiful Escada boutique for their 2013 Fall Collection, open to the public at 3 p.m. through the day’s last race, with a portion of the proceeds donated to BCRF.
The luncheon will be held August 14 at 11:30 a.m. at the At the Rail Pavilion. Click here for more information on the Sizzling Hot Pink Saratoga Hat Luncheon!
