A portion of sales from the evening (continuing through September 29th as well) will be donated to Lupus LA, a charity near and dear to Mary’s heart as she was diagnosed with lupus nearly 10 years ago. Lupus LA (http://www.lupusla.org/) is an organization dedicated to supporting new science in lupus, partnering with the Lupus Research Institute to fund the innovative research needed to prevent, treat and cure lupus. Even Prison Break actress Jodi Lyn O’Keefe (carrying the TORRE black and white stingray clutch) got in on the fun, buying the BEATRICE painted-python pump in burgundy.
