Just in time for National Cancer Research Month, the event will celebrate Bloomingdale's New View Collection and feature a special panel discussion. Bloomingdale's will donate 10% of all sales from the event to CBCF.
"These events are an exciting way to kick off our schedule of fundraising efforts that focus on today's popular fashion trends and styles," says Andrew Abramson, Treasurer and Co-Founder of CBCF.
