Rockefeller Cancer Institute at UAMS is one of the beneficiaries and has received more than $5.2 million for breast cancer research conducted here in Arkansas. Last year’s event raised $320,000.

What: It is a shopping event like no other, in the city that knows how to shop, with couture shoes and handbags being sold at half price.

Building on a rich history, the Ziegfeld Ballroom will open Fall 2017 as New York’s most sophisticated and significant new venue and we will be one of its first guests! The event will also feature a lovely sit-down dinner.
