OLD WESTBURY, NY —The tent at Old Westbury Gardens was filled with 530 guests to preview the autumn and winter fashions from the luxury Italian designer Max Mara for the 20th Annual Partners Council for Women’s Health Fall Luncheon & Fashion Show. The event, sponsored by Americana Manhasset, raised more than $450,000 for the newly constructed Katz Women’s Hospitals at LIJ Medical Center and North Shore University Hospital, and the Katz Institute for Women’s Health (KIWH).
Hosted by leading lifestyle expert, celebrity stylist and television personality, Robert Verdi entertained the crowd before the models took to the stage. The runway showcased the neutral palette of rich caramel coats, winter white suits and classic black dresses. The Max Mara fashions were complemented by the effortless makeup and sleek hair provided by nuBest Salon and Spa in Manhasset. All guests were treated to gift bags courtesy of the Beauty Bar of nuBest and the latest issue of New York Cottages & Gardens, the New York metropolitan area’s newest home and design publication.
All funds raised help North Shore-LIJ in its continued effort to transform women’s health services throughout the region. The Katz Women’s Hospitals, along with the Katz Institute for Women’s Health, continue to grow and serve as a valuable resource for women and their families.
The Partners Council for Women’s Health of the North Shore-LIJ Health System has raised more than $6.5 million over the last 20 years to help buy important equipment, fund critical research projects and build programs for the betterment of the women in and around our community.
