Juicy Couture Goes Bananas for the SF Zoo!

Juicy Couture Union Square showed its wild side last Tuesday when it hosted a cocktail party to launch the San Francisco Zoo’s annual fundraiser ZooFest for Kids! 2009 alongside Co-Chairs Mireille Schwartz, Cecilia Fisher and Charley Zeches.

Well-heeled grownups & chic tweens alike descended upon the event in true Juicy fashion – as this was only the second time the Juicy flagship location has ever opened its doors for a private party! This soiree was the brainchild of Mireille, Juicy Couture NY Marketing Department’s Rachel Jonas, and Juicy Couture General Manager Jay Madaus.

Guests nibbled on allergy-safe desserts made by Let Them Eat Cake, enjoyed fine Pearl Vodka Martinis & Lemon Drops, as well as a variety of extra special Juicy Couture treats all in support of the San Francisco Zoo’s annual kids event.

“We are honored to be a part of the San Francisco Zoo’s annual ZooFest for Kids!,” said Juicy Couture Co-Founders and Co-Creators Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor. They predicted, “Juicy Couture Union Square will host a fete that will kick off this great family event in a very Juicy way!”
