CaesarStone Co-Sponsors Inaugural "Couture Cares: A Benefit For Breast Cancer" Fashion Show And Luncheon

SUN VALLEY, Calif. (Oct. 18, 2005) — CaesarStone quartz surfaces has joined the fight against breast cancer by lending its support to the first “Couture Cares: A Benefit for Breast Cancer” fashion show and luncheon. Jennifer Aniston and Oscar de la Renta will co-host the event, which benefits the Revlon/UCLA Breast Center, led by renowned surgical oncologist Dr. Helena Chang. Saks Fifth Avenue and VOCE Cellular are also co-sponsors of this worthwhile cause, which will be held at a private residence in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Thursday, Oct. 20.

The “Couture Cares” venue will be transformed to accommodate an outdoor runway presentation of Oscar de la Renta’s Spring/Summer 2006 collection. The fashion show will be followed by an exclusive luncheon as well as an Oscar de la Renta trunk show with a portion of the proceeds going to the charity.

“We all have known family and friends affected by breast cancer — and it's a great honor to be involved and to contribute to such a worthy cause,” said Arik Tendler, president of CaesarStone quartz surfaces.

“Couture Cares” is a fundraiser solely for the Revlon/UCLA Breast Center. The event was established to help support Dr. Chang’s pioneering research and expand the extraordinary efforts of UCLA Medical Center. Serving as a model for other breast cancer treatments centers around the country, the Revlon/UCLA Breast Center is a leader in the medical community with its ingenious high risk, diagnostic, multi-disciplinary and follow-up programs.
