Neiman Marcus at Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey held their “Women Who Make Noise” contest. This celebrated 10 influential women in our community who styled mannequins in Spring CUSP trends.
The guest participants included Dina & Lexi Manzo (Real Housewives of NJ, Founder: Project Ladybug), Caroline Pennell (Musician, NBC’s The Voice), Joumana & Miah Kidd (TV Personality, Activist, Author), Carla Marie (Host, Z100), Margaux Minutolo (Founder, Karma for a Cure ), Dawn Del Russo (Fashion Stylist and Blogger), q (2014 USA Winter Olympian), Ninamarie Bojekian (Executive Chef & Owner, Ooh LaLa Catering), and Loula Karapiperis (Fitness Instructor & Owner, CKO).
It was great attending an event in New Jersey that showcased the exuberance of talent this tiny state has to offer. Reuniting with people I haven’t seen for years and making new friends was definitely a highlight of the evening! The music spun by DJ Toni K was fabulous adding a special celebratory vibe, a very fun pink CUSP photo booth, and manicure bar Sandy Le (Hot Nail Salon) just added to the festivities! I brought my parents to the event which was also really wonderful! They got to meet friends of mine whom were equally excited to meet mom & dad Senders and celebrate the efforts of NJ women along side me! It’s always so fun when mom and dad join in on the fun!
My friend and fellow FIT alumnus Margaux Minutolo (Founder, Karma for a Cure) won the contest and was awarded a a large donation to the charity of her choice which happened to be The Caroline Vandemark Fund (brain cancer research done by Dr Kaptain & Dr Goldlust– the phyiscans at John Theurer Cancer Center in Hackensack, NJ who saved her dads life via emergency brain surgery) Tons of family and friends were all there to support her efforts by wearing Karma for a Cure signature t-shirts and Healing Halos!
CONGRATS TO MARGAUX AND TO ALL OF THE OTHER CONTESTANTS ON A JOB WELL DONE!
