SUPER SATURDAY – 15 YEARS AND GOING STRONG
Can you believe Super Saturday is in its 15th year?!? I couldn’t be more excited with how it’s grown. The annual summer Hamptons Fundraiser has only gotten better with age: last year we raised a record $ 3.5 million with over 2500 attendees, and this year we expect even more people and to raise even more money! This all started as a simple tag sale in Liz Tilberis’ back yard. Liz had ovarian cancer and nobody was aware of the disease, so we just had to bring awareness. We emptied our closets and got all of our friends together and wound up buying all of each other’s things. It just grew from there, requiring bigger spaces with more vendors wanting in and more people buying tickets. The beautiful thing about Super Saturday now is that it’s no longer only shopping. It’s about unity. You’re communicating with the customer – dressing and addressing her. The whole family comes together. You get to shop. The kids hang out and play games, there’s fabulous food, and we all get to raise money and awareness for The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Everybody’s happy and wants to return - which is what makes it such a hot ticket year after year. I’m sure Liz is smiling down at her legacy – an event that will live on with care, compassion, connection, collaboration, creativity, and commitment to finding a cure.
