Oscar de la Renta
Her first choice for what have become her signature Suzanne Rogers Presents events was Oscar de la Renta. As Suzanne recalls, “Not only did he accept my invitation right away, he was the most charming, captivating and charismatic man to work with and shared my keen interest in supporting children’s charities. This was his first full runway show in Canada. We called it An Affair to Remember, and indeed
it was, raising more than $750,000.”
Proceeds from the gala supported HealthyKids International, an initiative invested in the future health of children the world over, developed by Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, and Casa Del Nino, a children’s charity started by Oscar de la Renta.
