Kelly Ripa is super excited to return as the co-host of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund‘s “Super Saturday” shopping event in the Hamptons this weekend — but she hopes that this year will be the sale’s last.

“Our goal is to put this event out of business,” the talk show hostess tells PEOPLE. “We would like to be able to raise enough money to find a cure for ovarian cancer.”

Now in its 15th year, Super Saturday — a chic, celeb-studded sale that takes place in Water Mill, N.Y., and is simulcast on QVC and qvc.com — has raised millions for its pet cause, and more than $3.5 million last year alone.

So what is Ripa shopping for this year? “I love everything,” she admits, “but always find great dresses at Nieves Lavi.” Handbags and “fantastic jeans” also make her list, but the mom of three keeps her children — Michael, 15, Lola, 11, and Joaquin, 9½ — at top of mind, too.

“I always get a lot for my kids there,” she shares. “Even if it’s too big now they will grow into it. My daughter loves going. My sons, not so much.”

So with so much fashion — and so many famous friends — expected at this year’s event, what is the star most looking forward to? She quips, “The goodie bag!”

Help the cause on Saturday by shopping QVC and qvc.com.
