Betsey Johnson & Century 21 to receive HUG Award

Jul '08
The Intimate Apparel Square Club (IASC), the New York-based nonprofit, volunteer group of lingerie industry professionals dedicated to raising funds for charities, proudly announces that two great innovators in American fashion and retailing will be the recipients of the 2008 HUG Award: designer Betsey Johnson and Century 21 Department Stores.

Ms. Johnson and Century 21 Department Stores will be feted at a gala fundraiser scheduled for November 5 to raise funds for the pediatric unit of the Howard A. Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center. Accepting on behalf of Century 21 Department Stores will be Executive Vice President Issac S. Gindi.

Now in its eleventh year, the 2008 HUG Award dinner dance will bring together leaders in fashion and retailing at the Waldorf-Astoria to raise funds for the IASC's campaign in support of pediatric treatment and rehabilitation.

In 1999 the IASC pledged $6 million to support programs at the pediatric wing of the Rusk Institute, a state-of-the-art facility where children with disabilities receive quality treatment by Rusk staff in a comforting and cheerful environment. To date, the annual HUG Award gala has raised more than $3 million for Rusk.
