The 2012 edition of the Saks Blast raised over $100,000 on behalf of the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. Event chairs Jennifer and David Fischer welcomed renowned fashion designer Naeem Khan, who presented selections from his upcoming Fall 2012 and Resort 2013 collections.

“The event was truly the place to be to witness the latest and greatest in fashion,” said Nick Karmanos, Senior Vice President of Institutional Relations at the Cancer Institute. “We are tremendously grateful to Jennifer and David Fischer and the Saks Fifth Avenue staff in Troy for creating a spectacular evening that helped raise critical funds in our mission to eradicate cancer.”
