Evine Will Sponsor, Do Red Carpet, At Race To Erase MS Gala

Evine is stepping up to the plate as a sponsor of the 24th annual Race to Erase MS Gala on Friday, May 5, at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

As a platinum sponsor of the star-studded gala, Evine is forking over a financial donation as well as donating several auction items to help raise funds in the fight against multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease that impacts over 2 million people worldwide.

And then just a bit over a week after the gala, Nancy Davis will appear live on Evine on May 19 – 21 with her signature “Peace & Love” branded product, including a co-branded timepiece created in partnership with Invicta.

“It is an honor for Evine to partner with Nancy Davis and the Race to Erase MS to help find a cure for multiple sclerosis,” Evine CEO Bob Rosenblatt said in a canned statement.

“MS is a disease that impacts some of our closest vendors, investors and customers, and we are humbled to support such a worthy cause. I look forward to having the opportunity to demonstrate Evine’s ‘Be Good to Others’ mantra as we partner with Nancy to help support research toward eradicating this debilitating disease.”

The Race to Erase MS was founded by Davis in 1993 after she was diagnosed with the disease. Since 1994, the foundation has raise more than $46 million in contributions. Funding research is the core focus of the foundation, with all funds raised supporting the Center Without Walls program, a nationwide collaboration of physicians and scientists all working to find a cure.

“When I was first diagnosed, there were no drugs on the market to help stop the progression of MS,” said Davis,founder of Race to Erase MS and owner of Peace & Love Jewelry.

“Today, there are 15 FDA-approved drugs to treat the symptoms of MS, and the FDA recently approved Ocrevus, which helps people with relapsing remitting MS in addition to people with primary progressive MS. That progress gives me hope and makes me grateful for all the people and organizations who have supported the Race to Erase MS. Evine has been an amazing partner over the past two years. The company’s generosity and willingness to raise awareness and money for MS research keeps our hope for finding a cure alive.”

At the gala Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Meadow Soprano on HBO’s “The Sopranos,” will be honored with the 2017 Medal of Hope Award.

Evine host Heather Hall will interviewing attendees on the red carpet along with Dr. Terry and Heather Dubrow as guests of honor.

In addition to the financial donation, Evine will also offer several auction items, including an “Evine Experience.” As part of the experience, the auction’s winner would receive a two-night travel package to Evine studios, including airfare and hotel for two. While at the studios, the winner would be given a backstage tour, the opportunity to pitch their product and a chance to sell a product live on Evine’s television network.

Invicta, Evine’s best-selling watch brand, has also created a timepiece especially for Davis’ foundation. Based on the popular Invicta Peace & Love watch released in early 2015, this year’s Invicta Peace & Love Lupah will be offered in both men’s and women’s styles and include six additional easy-to-change colorful straps. Each timepiece proudly displays Nancy Davis’s signature Peace & Love logo on its dial and comes packaged in a specially-designed gift box.

Returning to Evine May 19 through May 21, Davis will present the co-branded watch and new pieces from her Peace & Love gemstone jewelry collection, including a white topaz and zircon adjustable bracelet, offered in 14 different styles.
