Be part of the well-heeled crowd this fall:

Mark your calendars for November 10, 2017, when Wine Women and Shoes will hold its annual fundraiser to benefit Olive Crest. The event directly supports local families and provides critical funding for Olive Crest’s many programs, including foster care and adoption placement, family counseling services, and mental health care.

Wine Women and Shoes will be held at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel and includes a shop-for-a-cause marketplace, wine tastings from local wineries, lite bites from award-winning chefs, opportunities to bid on fashion-focused silent auction items, and an interactive live auction. You can also buy a chance to win the most coveted prize of the night, a “Key to the Closet” that unlocks a prize package valued at over $10,000.

Be on the lookout for the famous WWS “Shoe Guys” during the evening. These male volunteers support Olive Crest and WWS by fundraising in the community prior to the event. During the evening the Shoe Guys will be passing champagne to guests, serving as dedicated table hosts, and showcasing merchandise from marketplace vendors on silver platters. The Shoe Guy who raises the most money for Olive Crest will be crowned the “King of Sole” on-stage that evening.

While every seat is a good one, the Luxe Ticket is the ultimate way to enjoy this spectacular event. The Luxe Ticket, in partnership with Blue Nile, includes a table for 10 guests, a guest suite and champagne reception, hair and makeup, prime seating for the runway fashion show, swag bags, and valet parking. You even will have the opportunity to be outfitted with fine jewelry from Blue Nile to wear to the event. Talk about kicking up your heels for a great cause.

Wine Women and Shoes:

The evening highlight is a runway show featuring local boutiques including The Finerie, SILVAE and Canopy Blue and retailers including Barneys New York and Macys. This year in lieu of traditional models, community influencers including Amy Nelson of The Riveter will be walking the runway show to give the event an even more personal and impactful appeal.
