Stuart Weitzman's Celebrity Shoe Auction To Benefit Ovarian Cancer Research

LAS VEGAS — Stuart Weitzman, Inc. is hosting its Seventh Annual Celebrity Shoe Auction now through Oct. 4. Proceeds from the auction will benefit ovarian cancer research. Celebrities have design the shoes offered for bid. In most cases, the shoes are autographed by the designing celebrity and will be accompanied by an autographed photo.

Celebrity participants include Oprah Winfrey, Courteney Cox, Marcia Cross, Sharon Stone, Nicolette Sheridan, Vanessa Williams, Debra Messing, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Anika Noni Rose, Hayden Panettiere, Glenn Close, Fran Drescher, Kyle MacLachlan, Rachel Zoe, Minka Kelly, Charlize Theron, Queen Latifah, Rose McGowan, Mario Lopez, Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, Molly Sims and Kelly Ripa.

Also up for auction is a Stuart Weitzman tote bag with a floral motif that was signed by celebrities at the Fox Teen Choice Awards in 2007. Those signing include Jessica Alba, Avril Lavigne, Emmy Rossum, Sophia Bush, Miley Cyrus, Jordin Sparks, Jaslene, Nikki Blonsky, Adrianne Palicki, Taylor Kitsch, Sum 41, Chingy, Nick Cannon and Snoop Dogg.

Stuart Weitzman is the founder of Stuart Weitzman Inc. Combining an eye for beauty with the technical expertise of a master craftsman, he creates more than 300 new styles of shoes and handbags a year. Weitzman's trademark use of unique materials (name another shoemaker who has worked with cork, vinyl, Lucite, wallpaper, and 24-karat gold!) and his legendary attention to detail have garnered him and his company a global following. His shoes are now sold in 45 countries - everywhere from France to the West Indies to Japan. Shoppers in the U.S. forage for his footwear in major department stores and fine retail shops, as well as in his free-standing boutiques, located in several major cities across the country. With plans to open additional signature stores in the U.S., Weitzman is also expanding his retail footprint abroad. The flagship European Stuart Weitzman boutique is now open for business in Zurich.

Ovarian cancer is 90 percent treatable, but unfortunately most cases aren't diagnosed until it's too late. Stuart Weitzman, Inc. is using its brand and celebrity connections to bring attention to the need for research. It is hoped that new research will be able to pinpoint a method of early detection, which will save lives.
