Pair your shoeaholism with your love of wine this June 24 at Clos du Bois Winery in Geyserville for the annual Wine, Women & Shoes event. Browse the gallery above for highlights from previous events, and get all the details below.
The Wine, Women, Shoes event benefits Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County, a non-profit focused on assisting northern Sonoma County residents, so not only will you have the chance to add a few more pairs to your closet; your shoe shopping dollars will go the distance for locals in need of healthcare access, mental health care, and early childhood development care.
Healthcare Foundation’s CEO, Debbie Mason, said the goal for this one-day fundraiser is $850,000 (according to a May 24 report by Sonoma West Times).
Presented by E&J Gallo, Wine, Women & Shoes will feature the wines of local vintners and food from local chefs. The latest shoe fashions will be presented on silver platters by a volunteer force of “shoe guys” followed by a fashion show and live auction. There will also be a marketplace selling jewelry and shoes from local vendors.
Founded by Napa-based winery partner Elaine Honig over a decade ago, the Wine, Women & Shoes label has inspired fundraisers all over the U.S. and Canada. Honig, when previously working on the board of a local non-profit, saw a unique opportunity to fundraise by combining women’s love of pairing wine and food with their love of shoes.
When wine and sumptuous bites aren’t enough, why not throw in a little Nubuck?
