Reach for the Stars Fundraiser for Rett Syndrome

On June 12th, the International Rett Syndrome Foundation (IRSF) will be hosting their Reach for the Stars event in order to help fund research for treatments for girls with the developmental brain disorder known as Rett Syndrome.

Many influential people are expected to gather at this annual event between 6pm and 9pm at Hudson Terrace. DJ Hesta Prynn, a world renowned female DJ, will be donating her time to provide music and bring a little “girl power” in conjunction with this female only disorder. The event will begin with a cocktail reception and will also feature special musical performances provided by Randy Levine, Phil Blumberg, and Marc Applebaum. Dr. Alexandra Djukic, awarded by IRSF for her work at the State Rett Syndrome Center in the Bronx, will be giving a reading in addition to a live and silent auction. Liquor for this event will be provided by Grey Goose, Alacran Tequila, and Forever Young Wines. Other sponsors include cupcakes from Baked By Melissa and party favors by Popcorn Indiana among others. The honorees for this year’s benefit are Deborah and Noah Katz, Laura and Daniel Katz, Jillian, Abigail, and Victoria.

Be Surfer-Chic in Diane Von Fürstenberg for ROXY

Diane Von Fürstenberg’s new collaboration with ROXY is set to launch just in time for spring break! Being released online and in stores on March 7th, the surfer-chic collab between the high-profile designer and the Huntington Beach, CA.-based apparel line is a celebration of natural beauty and confidence. All pieces “reflect Diana Von Fürstenberg’s love of beach culture and nature as well as ROXY’s active and trailblazing spirit.” By combining DVF’s fun, bold prints with ROXY’s signature swim silhouettes the line is playful and empowering. Designed “for women who want to be the women they want to be” the collection includes ROXY’s beach essentials such as swimwear, cover-ups, board shorts, rash guards, and beach bags. For the most part, the bikini separates can be mixed and matched to create a bikini that’s perfect for your body type and style sense. We especially love the pastel tribal print of the Hopscotch Multi bikini with Knotted Bandeau Top! (top: $54, bottom: $46)
