HUDSON CROSSING: To celebrate its 100th anniversary bash, Diane Sullivan and other executives from the Brown Shoe Company will ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange on April 23. Afterwards, staffers will find their way to 4 World Trade Center to raise a glass and catch a performance by Jennifer Hudson. The $2.5 billion footwear giant, whose brands include Famous Footwear, Sam Edelman, Via Spiga, Vince and Naturalizer, signed her up for more than her vocal chords. “She is a self-made person, she’s real and her perseverance is inspiring to the brand,” a Brown Shoe spokeswoman said.
