Destination Fashion “Seasons” Raises More than $2 Million
March 2007 — Bal Harbour Shops hosted Destination Fashion “Seasons,” presented by Tova Leidesdorf, when it closed its doors for a huge bash produced by Barton G. and raised more than $2 million to benefit The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis.
Event Honorary Chair Gloria Estefan kicked off the spectacular evening where more than 2,000 celebrities and notables partied together while high-profile couture fashion designer Michael Vollbracht for Bill Blass showcased his Fall/Spring Collection, presented by Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour. One major highlight included the announcement of the Women of Substance & Style after which partygoers were dazzled by the change of “Seasons” to reveal a special concert performance by Donna Summer.
