Society confidential: ‘Motown: The Musical’ previews start
Yatooma and Champions
About 140 people showed up in the Designer Collections department at Saks Fifth Avenue in Troy recently to support the “Kickoff Party for Champions” benefiting Yatooma Foundation for the Kids. There was wine and hors d’oeuvres and a fashion show commentated by Saks events director Cheryl Hall Lindsay featuring the Spring 2013 Escada Collection.
“Cheryl and Ina ( Levinson , Saks VP and General Manager) and the rest of the Saks team did an amazing job, as always,” said the ever colorful and dapper Norman Yatooma , who founded the organization in honor of his late father, Manuel Yatooma . ” Sandy Pierce and John Balardo were spectacular co-chairs, as always.
And the models were uncomfortably tall, as always.”
The Champions event, Yatooma Foundation’s signature fundraiser, will take place at the Townsend Hotel on June 2.
