Fashion & Retail Spirit of Life ®
Fashion and Retail Council
The Sprit of Life Award is City of Hope’s most prestigious philanthropic honor, presented annually to industry leaders who have demonstrated outstanding personal, professional and philanthropic achievements. Past honorees include Ben Malka (Halston), Jeff Rudes (Jbrand) and other industry icons. Since the Fashion & Retail Industry Group’s founding in 1995, more than $44 million has been raised to support City of Hope’s mission to cure — and ultimately prevent — cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.
