4th Substance and Style Awards Kick-off Party
Celebrating Substance in a Stylish Setting

Washington Life and Saks Fifth Avenue hosted a party chaired by child advocate Debbie Sigmund at IndeBleu to kick off the fourth Annual Men and Women of Substance and Style Awards on January 25. Over 250 guests nibbled on savory hors d’oeuvres from IndeBleu’s acclaimed menu of Indian-infused French cuisine and sipped signature cocktails from the Metro-themed cocktail “map” while lounging on curved mattresses that arch into the ceiling. The Substance and Style awards are presented to eight men and women who exemplify a personal commitment to the Washington and/or global community. This year’s awards will benefit Wired Kids, Inc. (wiredkids.org), which works worldwide to create awareness about child sexual exploitation, child pornography and Internet sexual predators. More recently, the organization is helping to alleviate the orphan crisis in countries hit by the recent tsunami. Lisa Gordon-Hagerty will chair this year’s awards on April 4 at Saks Fifth Avenue, Chevy Chase. The winners will be featured in the April 2005 issue of Washington Life. Past winners include Art Monk, Marcus Johnson, Mary Ourisman and Rep. Steny Hoyer, among others.
