CCRI soirée

January 2006

(L-R) Toby O’Connor and Barbie O’Connor, founding presidents of the Children’s Cancer Research Institute’s Ambassadors’ Circle, join Mark Badgley, fashion designer; President Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D., and his wife, Graciela; Bobby Dees, Saks VP and general manager; James Mischka, fashion designer; and Andrew Jennings, Saks president and CFO, at the "Saks Loves San Antonio - Celebrating 20 Years" event in October at Saks Fifth Avenue at North Star Mall. World-renowned fashion designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka helped host the party of the year to benefit the Children’s Cancer Research Institute (CCRI). "Saks Loves San Antonio - Celebrating 20 Years" featured cocktails, cuisine and couture. A record 1,200 attended and more than $50,000 was raised for research that will move the CCRI closer to becoming a top-ranked cancer research institute with a focus on childhood cancer. Several guests took home prizes, including a pair of boots custom decorated by Badgley Mischka. Saks Fifth Avenue and Grey Goose Vodka sponsored the event.
