The Perfect Pair: Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos Team Up to Fight Ovarian Cancer
Date:7/13/2009

WEST CHESTER, Pa., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- From A-list parties and red carpet events to school trips and PTA meetings, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are certainly one of the busiest celebrity couples. Yet, even with three children and two successful careers, the dynamic duo are about to take on one more role as the stars of the new public service announcements to promote QVC Presents Super Saturday Live to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF).

The couple is scheduled to appear in both print and television public service announcements promoting QVC Presents Super Saturday Live on QVC Saturday, August 1, 2 PM - 4 PM (ET), with net proceeds benefitting OCRF. The exclusive sale, which was previously only available to Hamptons' tastemakers and celebrities, will reach QVC's 95 million U.S. households, allowing shoppers throughout the country to get designer styles at a fraction of the manufacturer's suggested retail price.

Ripa, a longtime supporter of OCRF, has hosted Super Saturday for the past five years, and will once again host the event in the Hamptons. Currently in its 12(th) year, Super Saturday will be broadcast live for the third consecutive year on leading multimedia retailer QVC.

"It's an honor for Mark and me to serve as the faces of QVC's public service announcement campaign, as well as to co-host Super Saturday -- it's a wonderful event that raises money for such an important cause," said Ripa. "It truly will be a super Saturday for me -- I get to spend the day with my husband, while shopping for a cure. What could be better than that?"

"QVC is thrilled to work with Kelly once again in championing such an important cause, and we're so excited that Mark is joining the team this year," said Claire Watts, president of U.S. Commerce for QVC. "We are grateful to both Kelly and Mark for helping QVC and OCRF generate much-needed awareness to such a critical issue."

"We're excited to work with our friends at QVC again for the 12(th) Annual Super Saturday," said Faith Kates Kogan, president of OCRF. "Together with QVC, Kelly and Mark, we will raise funds and awareness in support of the fight against ovarian cancer."
