St. Valentine’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show Chair Carmaleta Whiteley reports that she has lassoed three powerhouses to co-chair the underwriting for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society fundraiser — Olivia Kearney, Kate Rose Marquez and Lynn McBee.
The event is scheduled for the Meyerson on Wednesday, February 12, with Stanley Korshak providing the glamorama fashions.
Speaking of Korshak, that Crawford Brock is a pretty smart fella. In addition to being king of the Stanley Korshak kingdom, he’s been smart enough to have his three retailing daughters (Leigh in pr, Laura in men’s and Helen in women’s) work for him. Can you imagine what it must be around the holidays in their household!
Well, daughter Leigh reports that Crawford was just back from NYC where he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from MR Magazine. The award is designed to “honor innovators who have made a permanent imprint on the men’s apparel business.”
According to MR Editor-in-chief Karen Albert Grossman, “Aside from creating a unique and very special shopping experience for his customers, he’s willing to share his extensive knowledge of merchandising and marketing to inspire other independent merchants in the country.”
Hey, Karen, Crawford also knows and appreciates the importance of supporting the nonprofits in his market. Just ask the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Texas Ballet, Fresh Faces of Fashion and The Salvation Army’s Echelon Group.
