On Tuesday night, Hollywood actors joined Brooks Brothers in San Francisco to help raise funds for charity at the Union Square flagship store. The holiday party was a part of a company-wide initiative that will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's annual Thanks and Giving campaign. 13-year-old DJ Oscar Adler (son of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Lou Adler) spun tunes while guests sipped festive cocktails, took photos with Santa, and shopped the iconic, classic American clothing collections. 10% of the evening's net sales will be donated to St. Jude.
The St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign asks customers to "Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not." And the partnership between St. Jude and Brooks Brothers (which began in 2005) has raised more than $7 million for the charity in the past 8 years. This year, Brooks Brothers has created unique products for the campaign and will donate $5 for every purchase of a St. Jude item from now until January 1, 2014. And through today, enjoy an additional 20% off at Brooks Brothers, both in-store and on-line. 5% of these sales will be donated to the Golden Fleece Foundation, the Brooks Brothers charity that donates to St. Jude and other worthy causes.
