Fashion benefiting St.Jude Hospital – kick off cocktail hour

02 Jul

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

One of the most trusted charities of the Nation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is about to get yet another support from DC philanthropy army. On September 10, at 1 o’clock in Neiman Marcus Chevy Chase, 5th Annual Fashion benefit will take place, featuring looks from *Giorgio Armani* Fall 2011 RTW Collection! Tickets will be $150 and will include lunch, seat at the fashion show and fabulous swag bag.

Lia’s restaurant accommodated event Committee Kick-Off Cocktail Hour in its private event room on June 28. Event co-chairs Terri Carr, Amy Bischoff and April Jones Firoozabadi shared the importance of raising funds for this remarkable organization. St.Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, so no child is ever denied treatment because of the family‚Äôs inability to pay. The daily operating cost for St. Jude is $1.6 million, primarily covered by public contributions, which is why it is crucial to raise funds on events like this.

Please save the date and invite your friends to attend the event so this one of a kind organization continuously receives its support.
