New York – It was VIP shopping at its most spoiled as Richard Mast, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Bloomingdale’s and Ronald K. Brown, Artistic Director, Evidence, A Dance Company welcomed friends and supporters for a very special Holiday Shopping Event to benefit Brown’s internationally acclaimed company on December 15.

 

Guests were greeted in the luxurious 4th Floor Personal Shoppers Suite where. Sauvignon Blanc and Hors d’oeuvres were passed to fuel the guests before hitting the designer shops.

 

Nicole Cokley, Operating Vice President of Diversity and Community Relations   introduced the guests to Marian H. Goodman, Vice President Personal Shopping who was filled with savvy advice for the eager shoppers. Then Reginald Van Lee, Chairman of the Evidence Board gave the “ready set, shop for Evidence” and the guests dispersed often with a personal shopper by their side.

 

Bloomingdale’s elite team of personal shoppers was on hand to offer tips, answer questions and direct guests to the department of their choice in the famed New York designer emporium.  

 

The festive and beautifully planned shopping event treated guests to personal shopping with a capital P and allowed some very busy New Yorkers and Hamptonites a chance to shop leisurely with old friends and enjoy an evening in the fabulous environment of Bloomingdale’s recently redesigned flagship store.

Most importantly, they knew that a percentage of their purchases would go to Evidence, a New York Cultural treasure.

 

As well, with the upcoming Grace in Winter Silver Ball celebrating Evidence’s 25th Anniversary at the Plaza Hotel on February 8 featuring and benefitting Evidence, A Dance Company, many of the ladies took the opportunity to shop for a drop dead glam dress or the perfect accessories to go with the black tie with a touch of silver dress suggestion for the gala.  And did they shop! After quaffing a glass of wine, Monique Nelson Butts and her mother Dorothy Nelson headed off to Bloomingdale’s enormous shoe department for that perfect pair of silver slippers. Peter Theil was in search of a natty silver bow tie and Princess Keisha Omilana was thinking silver lame gown. This writer had his sights set on the midnight blue mink lined Lora Piana coat and didn’t have to be coerced to model it for the crowd.

 

Throughout the evening guests returned for as refresher of wine and to have their receipts validated in the At Your Service Office in the Personal Shopping Suite. Many guests who couldn’t attend the evening event shopped at their convenience during the day and Bloomingdale’s generously added their purchase to the tally to be donated to Evidence.

 

Among the many elegant shoppers were Evidence Vice Chair Joyce Mullins-Jackson, Board members Gail Monroe Perry, Dr. Ancy Verdier and Andrea Hoffman, Marion Burnside, Lara and Danielle Schiffren with Austin Stevenson, Stephen Wald, Rasheed Thompson, Ken Smaltz, Kelli Goff, Tamara Passee, Jenna Bond, Jacqueline McAllister, Lorrie Kin, Dan Johnson, Chris Lee, and Dalila Kee.

 

 

Bloomingdale’s has always been a strong supporter of the Arts and has in recent years upped their level of funding through a number of innovative strategies. Now they are championing one of the world’s premiere dance ensembles. Founded by Ronald K. Brown, Evidence, A Dance Company’s mission is to promote understanding of the human experience in the African Diaspora through dance and storytelling and to provide sensory connections to history and tradition through music, movement, and spoken word, leading deeper into issues of spirituality, community responsibility and liberation. For almost a quarter of a century, Evidence under the artistic direction of Brown has won critical acclaim and performed on stages around the world.

 

2010 will mark the Company’s 25th Anniversary which will be highlighted by major celebrations, a special performance at the Vancouver Winter Olympics, a tour of Africa and the Grace in Winter Silver Ball at The Plaza Hotel in New York on February 8. Always one of the most eagerly anticipated, glamorous social events of the season, the gala has been featured in New York Social Diary and Town & Country. This year Evidence, A Dance Company will honor founder Ronald K. Brown and longtime supporter Chairman of the Board Reginald Van Lee and Booz Allen Hamilton. The evening will begin with cocktails and an online auction of luxury items and once-in-a lifetime experiences followed by a performance of “Grace”, Evidence’s signature dance piece, dinner, a live auction and special performances by Tony Award winner Jennifer Holliday and jazz great Peven Everett. Victoria Rowell will host the evening. Dress is black tie with a touch of silver.
