An auction sponsored by a group of luxury retailers has enlisted fashion celebrity help to raise money for a foundation that promotes paralysis research.

South Florida''s Bal Harbour Shops has donated a collection of jewelry for Destination Fashion 2009''s silent auction benefiting The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis. The highlight of the multi-day event will take place this Saturday when designer Michael Kors will showcase his exclusive fall 2009 collection runway show.

"Destination Fashion is South Florida''s most anticipated event of the year," says Suzie Sayfie, executive director of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.

She adds, "The unprecedented generosity and commitment shown by Bal Harbour Shops'' collection of stores is remarkable and truly a testament to the longevity and reputation of its luxury brands."

Some of the items on the bidding block include a DeBeers diamond ring, Fendi and Chanel bags, six pairs of shoes from Miu Miu as well as a Carolina Herrera gold floral metallic lace gown.

Destination Fashion 2009, presented by Stewart Rahr, will take place at Bal Harbour Shops on March 7, and the organizers expect two thousand visitors, including celebrities and notables from the worlds of entertainment, sports, media and fashion.
