CIBS Holds Holiday Ball, Presents Scholarship

November 30, -0001

The Cosmetics Industry Buyers and Suppliers Organization (CIBS) recently hosted its annual Holiday Ball at the New York Hilton Grand Ballroom. CIBS members and their guests enjoyed a festive evening of dancing and dining set in an elegant black and red themed décor.

In other news, during a luncheon held at OPIA Restaurant in New York City, CIBS awarded its December scholarship in memory of Roger Caracappa to Emily Sieme, a junior at the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) in New York City.

Mr. Caracappa, vice president of global packaging at The Estée Lauder Companies—where he served for 36 years—was possibly the greatest mentor for aspiring young people entering the cosmetic industry, according to CIBS. He was intrinsic to creating F.I.T.’s Master’s program in Cosmetic and Fragrance Marketing and was a long-time member and active supporter of CIBS.
