GROVE FETED: Janet Grove, chairman and chief executive officer of Federated Merchandising Corp., was in the spotlight last week at a “Meet the Honoree” cocktail party hosted by the Intimate Apparel Square Club at the Water Club in Manhattan.
Grove will be receiving the organization’s annual HUG Award for her accomplishments in the retail field as well as her community service. Grove will receive her HUG Award — Help Us Give — on Aug. 6 at an affair at New York’s Grand Hyatt Hotel.
“The intimate apparel industry is very near and dear to my heart,” said Grove, who has been associated with Federated in New York for six years and was with its Macy’s West division for 19 years before that.
Monies raised for the event will be donated to the Pediatric Rehabilitative Unit of the Rusk Institute at NYU Medical Center. “I just took a tour of the hospital, and they are a very inspirational group of people,” Grove said.
