GEORGETOWN -- Guests brought their appetites for fashion, food, and fun to Michel Richard Citronelle and The Latham Hotel on Wednesday evening, for a charity event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Dubbed a night of “Summer Hope” (an analogous “Sweet Hope” event is also held every year during the winter), the sold-out affair saw close to one hundred supporters gather inside of one of Georgetown’s poshest buildings.

VIP ticketholders were provided early access to the event at 6:00p.m., including complimentary makeover stations and the open “Fashionista Bar” featuring “Les Petites Mains” (Little Hands) specialty cocktails, and better odds of winning some of the night’s desirable door prizes (think free dinners at award-winning Citronelle, a shopping spree at Saks Fifth Avenue or a weekend stay at The Latham).

But despite the libations and gourmet savory (tuna-beet tartare, crab spring rolls, onion tart, salmon terrine, etc.) and sweet (signature chocolate bars, cherry tarts, napoleons) fare, this dapper crowd clearly came for the fashion. And that stylish itch was scratched by the Tysons Galleria location of Saks Fifth Avenue.

In a carefully curated runway show presented by MyDCStyle’s April Jones Firoozabadi, guests were provided with a glamorous front row seat to a program that featured some of the retailer’s freshest line of summer accessories.

And in an innovative twist, Saks had even setup a pop-up shop at the event, with much of the featured resort wear, kaftans, sunglasses, and handbags available for immediate sale or pre-order. As an added bonus, 10% of the evening's sales were donated to St. Jude.

Stylish summer hope, actualized!
