“Tonight’s going to be a good, good night.” That’s how Brown Shoe chairman and CEO Ron Fromm summed up the festive and philanthropic mood at QVC Presents “FFANY Shoes on Sale” — while also giving a shout out to his footwear partner Fergie — during a speech last Wednesday at the breast cancer fundraiser. Fromm and Jones Group founder and chairman Sidney Kimmel were the two recipients of the first Jodi Fisher Humanitarian Award, which honors the event’s late co-founder. During the evening, Fisher was remembered in a touching video about her dedication to the cause.

The next day, more big names gathered for a leadership town hall, presented by Two Ten Footwear Foundation and Footwear News.
