Armani USA

Mike had a great opportunity to fly to New York in the summer of 2001 for an Armani USA photoshoot.

Armani USA and Esquire Magazine hosted a benefit for the Mike Modano Foundation at the Armani Collezioni store at Willow Bend Mall on March 7, 2002. The reception was an overwhelming success, with over 200 guests attending, including Armani and Esquire representatives that flew in from New York just for the event. Guests enjoyed catered hors d'oeuvres and beverages while browsing for the latest fashions in the Armani Collezioni line. Shoppers had plenty of incentive to spend, as Armani donated 15% of sales to the Mike Modano Foundation.

The guest of honor, Mike Modano, was nattily attired in Armani, of course. But it was his fashionable "accessory" that drew the most attention, as Mike delighted guests with an up close and personal look at his silver medal from Team USA's recent feat at the Olympics in Salt Lake City. As one guest noted, "It beats wearing a tie!" A very special thanks to Armani and Esquire for their support of the Mike Modano Foundation. Thanks also to the Pepsi Cola Bottling Company for providing soft drinks and Aquafina bottled water for the event.
