Members and supporters of the prestigious Intimate Apparel Square Club (IASC), the New York-based charity known for supporting pediatric treatment and rehabilitation, celebrated their 60th Anniversary with a diamond themed fête at the luxurious 230 Fifth in Manhattan.
The “Who’s Who” of the intimates industry honored Hanesbrands and JCPenney in addition to presenting a Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. Joan Gold.
Top apparel industry executives from the retail, manufacturing and supply sectors reunited to raise funds for Rusk Rehabilitation's pediatric programs and other children's services at NYU Langone Medical Center.
I wore a THEIA jacquard ball gown with strapless crepe bodice and patent belt for the occasion. As with any THEIA gown, the moment I put it on I felt like a Princess. In fact, inspired by the Greek Goddess THEIA, this evening wear, bridal and day dress collection was created to bring out every woman’s inner goddess. One of the original Titans, THEIA who ruled during the Greek Golden Age, possessed the incredible power of light which radiated from her sparkling eyes.
Established in 1955, The Intimate Apparel Square Club (IASC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Club’s annual fundraiser, which was renamed the H.U.G. (Help Us Give) Gala in 1998, honors well-respected, high-profile companies and individuals, and has generated more than $6 million in support of Rusk Rehabilitation at NYU Langone Medical Center.
To date, the H.U.G. Gala has raised more than $6 million for Rusk pediatric rehabilitation and Tisch Hospital programs.
