On December 10th, Brooks Brothers,  and special guests, hosted its first ever San Francisco holiday celebration at the flagship store in Union Square, benefiting the wonderful work of St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.  At this festive fete, 400 parents and children enjoyed delicious bites, cocktails, and mock-tails by PlumpJack Catering;  hip beats by DJ Oscar Adler, the 13 year-old son of famed music producer, Lou Adler; and family activities, including photos with Santa, cookie and ornament decorating, and balloon art. 

Notable attendees included: the Adler Family, Joy Venturini Bianchi, Peter Getty, Shannon Bavaro, Hilary Newsom and family, the Paige family, Doug and Shyla Hendrickson and family, Biff and Missy Brandon and family, Mary and John Eugster and family, Elizabeth Funk and family, and Alicia Engstrom and family.

Adding to the night’s celebrations, special guests, Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita, actress Abigail Spencer, and actors Josh Pence and Colton Haynes stopped by to lend support to St. Jude–they all created cards for St. Jude patients and encouraged attendees to do the same. Ten percent of the evening’s sales were donated to the charitable organization.  Since 2005, Brooks Brothers has raised more than $7 million for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
