Water Mill - "Twilight's" Ashley Greene and Kelly Ripa along with Donna Karan, Ariel Foxman and InStyle will host Ovarian Cancer Research Fund's (OCRF) 13th annual Super Saturday on Saturday, July 31 at Nova's Ark Project in Water Mill, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. with a special preview hour beginning at 12 noon.

Super Saturday 13 is a fun-filled, family-oriented, daylong fundraiser to benefit OCRF, complete with a one-of-a-kind designer garage sale, kids' carnival and activities, a luxury raffle and gourmet treats. Once dubbed "the Rolls Royce of garage sales," the most anticipated element of Super Saturday is the fashion garage sale, which includes merchandise from over 200 prominent designers including Donna Karan, Theory, Carolina Herrera, Calvin Klein, Catherine Malandrino, Charlotte Ronson, Diane von Furstenberg, Elizabeth & James, Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren. The special Super Saturday Accessories Salon will showcase luxury accessories - past designers have included Louis Vuitton, Emilio Pucci, and Tory Burch.

For the third consecutive year, the "Designers A to Zoe" booth by Rachel Zoe will feature luxury designers such as Chloe, Derek Lam, Giuseppe Zanotti, Judith Leiber, Kara Ross, Oscar de la Renta, Stella McCartney and Temperley London.

Once again, OCRF has joined forces with leading multimedia retailer QVC to make this exciting event available to shoppers nationwide. Broadcasting live from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (ET), QVC Presents Super Saturday Live will offer viewers the chance to purchase a variety of products including apparel, accessories, jewelry and beauty at amazing prices with all net proceeds benefiting OCRF.

In addition to the incredible shopping, Super Saturday 13 will offer attendees an action-packed afternoon of indulgences. The Physique 57 Pedicure Salon will help shoppers put their best foot forward by revitalizing tired, shopped-out feet. Men can take a load off and escape the heat at the Nintendo Men's Lounge, where they can grab a cocktail while playing their favorite Nintendo Wii games in this interactive gaming lounge. Ladies can stop by Votre Vu's VuBAR Airstream for relaxing botanical hand therapy or sun-shielding treatment for skin, lips and hair.

For children at Super Saturday 13 there will be rides, games and arts and crafts galore. This summer at Camp Divalysscious, kids will experience special performances from "Broadway Babies," Miss Pinkie and Laughing Pizza. Kid stars will enjoy activities such as arts and crafts, s'more making and decorating musical instruments and picture frames. Plus fun entertainment including Wendy The Pipe Cleaner Lady, Dan The Drummer, Face Painting, Balloon Artistry and portraits by photographer Heidi Green. At the Success for Kids tent, adults and kids can create their very own books on "What the World Looks Like At Its Best" and personalize tee-shirts alongside graffiti artist Andre Charles.

Super Saturday was created in 1998 by Donna Karan, the late Liz Tilberis and OCRF's President Faith Kates Kogan. Karan has underwritten the event since its founding and all net proceeds raised go directly to OCRF's research programs. InStyle has been a sponsor and host of Super Saturday since 2001.

In 2009, Super Saturday raised over $3.7 million for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Ticket prices for Super Saturday 13 are $450 (regular) or $650 (preview) for adults and $150 for kids ages five through 16 (kids under five are admitted free.) The preview ticket includes access to an exclusive shopping hour from 12 noon to 1 p.m., as well as a goodie bag. Tables and sponsor packages are also available beginning at $2,500.

To purchase tickets or for more information, call London Misher Public Relations at 212-759-2800, ext. 22 or visit Ovarian Cancer Research Fund's website at www.ocrf.org.

About Ovarian Cancer Research Fund
The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the largest private non-profit organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to funding ovarian cancer research. Our mission is to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer. Each year there will be approximately 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer in the United States, and about 15,500 women will die of the disease. Currently there is no effective means of early detection. Since 1998, OCRF has given over $33 million for ovarian cancer research. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, OCRF sponsored researchers are developing innovative strategies for early detection; exploring the genetics that increase risk for ovarian cancer; understanding the underlying molecular biology of the disease; identifying new and better targets for treatment; and deciphering how and why ovarian cancer spreads, and how to stop it.

Thank you so much for all your efforts to help Ovarian Cancer Research. My sister is 48 years old and was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer a year and a half ago. We also lost my dad to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma last year. I hope you raise a lot of money for this cause and help put an end to this terrible cancer.

I am 27 and currently battling stage 3 B, low- grade serous carcinoma ovarian cancer. I think this is a great event for a wonderful cause. If I could afford to attend I would, but maybe next year. But to all the people who are going and have supported this horrible disease, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Denise Delise

Such a dreadful disease, but we can fight this together. Votre Vu is a French skincare line and is donating 50% of the purchase price for, none other than, their most-coveted product "Duette" which is selling for $22 TODAY ONLY. This is the combo lip balm and hand cream duo that everyone is talking about. Just go to www.votrevu.com/bestfrenchskincare and place your order, but do it before midnight on 7/31. No limit on quantity, and not only is it a wonderful treat for YOU, it is also a wonderful way for you to participate in this event and help fight ovarian cancer by assisting in their research fund. SO, help the OCRF in finding a cure! Thanks for your support.
