VIP RECEPTION 6PM
Dinner, wine tasting and fashion benefiting breast cancer research at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center
The second annual Maize and Blue Go Pink (MBGP) will be held on the evening of Thursday, August 21, 2014, at The Somerset Collection in Troy.
The Somerset Collection and its many retail partners in Somerset Collection South will close their doors to the general public that evening for a private, ticketed fundraiser hosted by Nate and Catherine Forbes. VIP ticket holders will enjoy a private reception at Neiman Marcus featuring a fashion-focused live auction from 6-7pm. All guests are invited to the progressive dinner and shopping event throughout Somerset Collection South from 7pm-10pm.
With costs underwritten by The Forbes Company, The Somerset Collection and Neiman-Marcus, nearly all of the proceeds from sponsorships, tickets, live and silent auctions and a percentage of sales that evening will go to breast cancer research at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMCCC).
The month of August will kick-off a vast marketing initiative that highlights the research taking place within UMCCC, culminating with Maize and Blue Go Pink on the evening of Thursday, August 21. The Somerset Collection will turn maize, blue and pink for the first 21 days of the month with banners, signage and materials that will be placed throughout the mall.
