United Way of Broward County hosted the second annual Wine, Women & Shoes event on Thursday, April 23rd at the Gallery of Amazing Things in Dania Beach. The fabulous event provided an opportunity for more than 350 key influencers, fashion trendsetters, and charity supporters to come together and support the local community. Wine, Women & Shoes raised more than $60,000 benefitting United Way of Broward County’s programs such as ReadingPals and Project Lifeline.
As guests arrived, they were greeted by “Sole Men,” local male volunteers who presented the latest fashion accessories and jewelry on silver trays and shared fun facts about the art of wine and shoes. Guests dined on small plates provided by Ruth’s Chris SteakHouse Fort Lauderdale and sipped on wines from wineries around the world while they participated in a silent auction that included items ranging from luxurious wines to the hottest fashions, exciting spa packages and more.
The night’s festivities also included a live auction where participants bid on lavish vacations to destinations such as Napa Valley, Italy and a VIP experience to the Emmys in Los Angeles. A magnificent fashion show with the latest collections in women’s wear and ultra-fashionable high heels featuring top local fashion designers including Julian Chang, Lisu Vega, Nicolas Felizola, Tiffany Chimere and Crustal 4 U culminated the night. The fashion show was produced by Sobol Fashion Productions, best known for the development and implementation of Miami Fashion Week.
