Fashion Benefit ‘Dressed to the Nth Degree’ set for Nov. 6 is canceled

The La Jolla Light has learned that Leonard Simpson’s 2010 Best Dressed of San Diego awards and “Dressed to the Nth Degree” fashion show set for tomorrow, Nov. 6  at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina to benefit the Ronald McDonald House, was canceled out of respect to Denise and Bertrand Hug, honorary chairs of the event, whose son, Julien, was found dead earlier this week.

According to Kim Lande, a spokesperson for the event, “Ronald McDonald House Charities’ board has made the decision to cancel the event out of respect for the Hugs and for their many friends in our community, who are also grieving.”

The event was to include a dazzling fashion show, awards to the year’s snazziest dressers, and a sparkling indoor forest of professionally decorated trees available for auction. Amanda Baker, film and television actress from “All My Children” was to emcee, with celebrity guests Mary Murphy, from the television show ”So You Think You Can Dance,” and Nick Verreos of TV’s “Project Runway.”

Leonard Simpson, renowned “Style Guy” and founder of Fashion Forward, along with Linda Masters, chair of the event, were to present

Nolan Miller with the Fashion Forward Lifetime Designer Award.

Leonard Simpson’s 2010 Best Dressed list includes the women: Deni Jacobs, Jeanne Jones, Joni Alpert, Joye Blount, Mary Drake, Melissa Falk,

Patsy Marino, Phyllis Parrish, Reena Horowitz and Renee Schatz; and the men Craig Grosvenor, David Marino, Elliot Alpert, Fred Applegate, J. Mark Grosvenor, Joe Harper, Kelly Mikules, Ndubisi Ezeolu, Ramin Pourteymour and Sean Daneshmand.

Tickets to the event were $150 ($250 VIP seating).

Refunds will be made upon request to those who purchased tickets and made donations for the event.

“Our heart goes out to the Hug family for their tremendous loss,” said Sharon Smith, vice president of development at Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. “Thank you to everyone for understanding our decision to cancel the event. We are a community grieving together.”
