Kelly Ripa And Lisa Robertson Star In QVC PSA For Charity

first_imgTwo of the hottest hosts in live television – Kelly Ripa and Lisa Robertson – appear in both print and television public service announcements promoting QVC Presents Super Saturday LIVE on QVC Saturday, July 27 at 2 PM (ET), with net proceeds benefitting Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF).Both longtime supporters of OCRF’s “celebrity garage sale” in the Hamptons, Ripa who is best known as the co-star of “LIVE with Kelly and Michael”, will once again serve as its host while Robertson will take viewers inside the prestigious event during the “QVC Presents Super Saturday LIVE” broadcast.QVC began broadcasting from the exclusive Super Saturday sale in 2006 to help bring the fun and excitement of the event to its 100 million U.S. households, while also offering its viewers premier fashion, beauty, jewelry, accessories and home items for HALF the manufacturer’s suggested retail price*, with net proceeds benefitting OCRF.“It has been a pleasure to host this exciting show since the beginning and watch it rapidly grow into one of our highest viewed programming events,” said Robertson. “For me, personally, it has been amazing to be a part of such an important cause. If even one woman benefits from our broadcast then I feel that we have made an impact in helping to build awareness for this difficult- to-diagnose disease.”Often undetected in the early stages due to lack of specific testing, Ovarian Cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States and is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women. QVC’s PSA campaign was designed to bring more awareness to this often “masked” disease and, thanks to Ripa and Robertson, spread the word to other women that could be affected.“QVC continues to be one of our greatest supporters and we are so thankful to Kelly and Lisa for continuing the fight this year to help bring attention to the importance of research for Ovarian Cancer,” said Audra Moran, CEO, OCRF. “We look forward to QVC’s involvement again this year and, of course, the amazing awareness that their broadcast brings to the event.”last_img read more

Michigan St., hired Schmude earlier this year as its acting chef, but officially announced his new position on March 20. Schmude most recently served as head chef at The Partisan in Washington D.C. According to a news release, his previous experience also includes chef positions at Botero Steak in Las Vegas, Clyde’s in Washington, D.C., and Plato’s Restaurant in Aspen, Colo. He also served as a private chef for an NBA athlete.  “If I had to describe my style, it’s taking familiar, approachable dishes and then putting a little modern twist with different flavor profiles and complimentary ingredients,” Schmude said in the release. “I’m not one for reinventing the wheel, I’m more concerned with making really outstanding food for our guests.”Rare also announced it will soon roll out a new lunch menu that features its traditional cuisine, but with lighter options.“All great restaurants make adjustments to meet the demands of its clientele,” Rare CEO Michael Sternberg said. “After two years in Milwaukee, we’re constantly working to create a better experience to meet the expectations of our Milwaukee customers.” Madison-based Noble Chef Hospitality opened the restaurant in June of 2016, but it is now owned and operated by Rare Management. Rare Steakhouse is best known for its in-house aged steaks and its selection of over 1,000 types of wine. Rare Management also operates locations in Madison and Washington D.C.
