One of Louisvilleâ€™s hottest boutiqueâ€™s is behind the celebs who will help pack The Julep 2012.
Glasscock Boutique has helped secure a guest list for the Derby Eve gala that includes fashion designer Christian Siriano, actor Fred Willard, Green Bay Packers linebacker AJ Hawk, â€œGlee Starâ€ Max Adler,Â Zachery Ty Bryan, of â€œHome Improvementâ€ fame, actress Doris Roberts and actor-producer David Arquette.
The Julep, which benefits the James Graham Brown Cancer Center, is May 4 at The Galt House. Glasscock owner Mary F and her husband Ed Glasscock are serving as honorary chairs of the event along with University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong and his wife, Victoria.
â€œEd and I are both excited about the opportunity to serve as honorary chairs,â€ said Mary F Glasscock. â€œThe James Graham Brown Cancer Center is one of the jewels in Louisvilleâ€™s crown, and such a vital part of the continued growth of our community.Â We are grateful that these famous individuals are willing to lend their star-power to our cause.Â And it has been delightful to work with Coach Strong and Victoria to see this project through to fruition.â€
The push to land reconizable names for The julep began when Glasscock representative Todd Calvert attended Fashion Week in New York City. â€œIt became a game: Who could I walk up to next and convince to join us for The Julep?â€ he said.
The Julep is the largest annual fundraiser for the James Graham Brown Cancer Center.Â Besides Glasscock, other sponsors includeÂ Brown-Forman, Churchill Downs, Frost Brown Todd and the Jefferson County Sheriffâ€™s Office.
