It’s fashionable to care! Please join Sarah Sarna and Team sTANd (the official campaign of LLS Man of the Year Candidate John Tan) in a fight against blood cancers, for a night all about caring and looking good while doing so! On Friday April 5th Team sTANd will host Fashion sTANds Against Cancer, a cocktail party featuring the hottest fashion and design accessories, all in the name of raising money for a cure.
Meet the man behind this event: LLS Man of the Year Candidate John Tan. John is my friend, my neighbor, and has been a fellow Team in Training -NYC Chapter teammate with me for years. You’ll learn more about him at the Fashion sTANds event, and in future LTLYDA posts.
Now more about the event. At Fashion sTANds Against Cancer you’ll mingle with some of New York’s hottest designers, all of whom will display products and services from their newest collections, available for purchase that very evening on Friday April 5th. Proceeds of each purchase, as well as all ticket sales, go directly to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, so bring your shopping spirit and let’s shop for a great cause! Designers at the event will include: Amber Blue, Do Good Buy Us, Erica Sara Designs, Humble Chic, Kerrie Yeung, Love of Pretty, Melissa J Tyson Jewelry, Peace Love Glove, RUBR, Sparkly Soul, Stella & Dot personal stylist Carri Dolce, Live The Life You Dream About, and Yoga Smoga. Each designer will be contributing by selling at Fashion sTANds and donating a percentage to sTANd, donating an item to be raffled during the evening, and donating a percentage of online sales when visitors use code word “sTANd.”
Throughout the night of April 5th, make sure to tweet and instagram your fashion finds using the hashtag #FashionsTANds. Your tweets and photos will be automatically uploaded to Team sTANd’s Event Page, creating a living photo gallery of the event! Please also follow along on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the Team sTANd Homepage.
My husband and I have our tickets! Early Bird tickets are $75 until Thursday March 28th at midnight. Until April 5th, tickets will be $85. There will be a very limited number of tickets at the door at Ainsworth Park for $90. Each ticket includes an open bar for the duration of the event as well as one hour of passed hors d’oeuvres.
