J. McLaughlin, the M Street shop for cool prepsters, hosted a benefit for CURE Epilepsy, Sept. 14. Founder Susan Axelrod (wife of the White House's David Axelrod; their daughter Lauren suffers from the disease) of Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy greeted MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, her mother Emilie and brother Mark -- along with other political and artistic types, such as Susan Sher, Debbie Dingell, Mike Allen, Tammy Haddad and Jayni Chase (yes, wife of Chevy). Also on hand was J. McLaughlin CEO Steven Siegler and the shop's staff, whose sales aided the non-profit. The stylish and spirited Brzezinski, who grew up around Georgetown, is the daughter of President Carter's National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinki and wears J. McLaughlin clothes on air during Morning Joe. For more info, visit
