- This year Super Saturday
celebrated it's Fifteenth year. I have been luckily enough to attend this benefit for the past ten years and it is my absolute favorite day of the year. For me it is like Christmas in July, better than Christmas actually.

Recently OCRF has teamed up multimedia retailer QVC
giving those who cannot attend the opportunity to shop as QVC broadcasts live from the event. Viewers had the chance to purchase a variety of products including apparel, accessories, jewelry and beauty at deeply discounted prices with all net proceeds benefiting OCRF.
The day full of indulgences featured a variety of beauty touch ups including the Cover Girl
bar where guests could stop to get advice on which lip color is best for them and then take photos at the Cover Girl photo booth. The InStyle
Cabana was the place to relax and refresh with beauty touch ups and cool drinks. For those looking to be pampered the Color Club treated guests to manicures and pedicures, while the Aruba Happy Lounge offered Aruba Aloe
hand massages and hair experts from Fat Hair Hairspray touched up guests hair which was much appreciated after the rain. And believe it or not the attraction that had the longest line was for a psychic reading with Betsy Wahman.

For the little ones Camp Divalysscious was a main attraction for celebs and their kids this year. Kelly Ripa, Kyle Richards, Heather Thompson, Beth Stern
, June Ambrose, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Divamoms.com's Lyss Stern
, and Kelly Florio Kasouf stopped by. Guests were treated to special performances from Miss Pinkie
, and Wendy The Pipe Cleaner Lady. Acclaimed children's author and Elizabeth Street ambassador Kelly Florio Kasouf did a reading of her first self-published title, The Super Adventures of Sophie and the City: All in a Day's Work and gave the audience a sneak peak into her second story, Grand Central Escapades. The kiddies also kept busy with face painting, balloon artistry, and yummy s'mores making.
Another popular attraction was the Nintendo
3DS Experience, where celebrities enjoyed a stocked candy bar and friendly competition. The tent decorated with popular elements from Mario's world such as warp pipes, mushroom caps, and gold coins was the perfect place to escape the rain. Parents and kids alike were having fun competing on a variety of Mario games, including Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, and Mario Tennis Open.
For me the best part of the day is when you get home assess your purchases and then dive into the best goody bag any event I have ever been to has. With everything from beauty products from Mark cosmetics and Cover Girl to jewelry from Amrita Singh Jewelry to toothpaste from Supersmile this goodie bag has everything a girl could want.
