The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation announced that it will honor American designer John Varvatos with the Fashion Cares Award at its 18th Annual Benefit Dinner & Auction at Cipriani Wall Street on Thursday, November 12th, 2015.
John Varvatos, who was born and raised in Detroit, MI, will join a number of other designers and brands who have received the Fashion Cares Award, including Carmen Marc Valvo, Tadashi Shojiand Cushnie et Ochs. He will be the first menswear designer to receive the award. In addition, Varvatos will be auctioning off a $10,000 shopping spree at his SoHo store at the Gala.

In 2014, he helped raise $1.1 million for the Foundation, which has raised over $5.1 million.
The American Cancer Society also auctioned off the 2013 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition in addition to John Varvatos merchandise and a generous shopping spree at the John Varvatos Bowery Store in New York City with hotel and airfare included at the Annual American Cancer Society Cattle Baron’s Ball in 2013.
