Suzanne Brown, longtime Colorado lifestyle editor of the Denver Post, was honored at the Volunteers of America annual Service with Style luncheon on Friday, November 1 at the Four Seasons. The very stylish event benefited the VOA's Brandon Center, a 118-bed shelter that provides food, shelter and life-skills training for women and children who are victims of domestic violence or formerly homeless. Surprise guest Mayor Michael Hancock presented Brown with her award; the luncheon also featured fashions from Mariel and Goldyn boutiques with additional pop-up stores by Sugarlicious, Castles Home Decor and the Oxford Club Spa & Salon.
