Miami, FL – March 2, 2018 – Over 600 women attended the 7th Annual ” Wine Women & Shoes ” event benefiting the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. Since 1970 the organization has been saving lives by making sure that no child would ever have to leave South Florida to receive world-class healthcare. Together with doctors, nurses, technicians, staff, volunteers and the surrounding community, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation helps guide the transformation of Niklaus Children’s Hospital into a nationally-ranked pediatric institution. The money raised during the ” Wine Women and Shoes ” event help provide children with the doctors, facilities and innovations that give them the best chance for health and happiness in the future.
The event was hosted by Niklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation and emceed by Jacey Birch. Event co-chairs this year were Susanne Birbragher, Suzy Buckley Woodward and Melinda Gonzalez. The iconic French fashion house Jitrois presented its lates collection featuring luxury suede and leather pieces.
Wine Women & Shoes events were created by Elaine Honing in 2004 as a local community fundraiser in Napa Valley. It doubled as a marketing opportunity for Napa Valley wines—a “pairing” that proved to be so successful, she grew it into a national nonprofit events company. In the last decade, Wine Women & Shoes has exploded across the US producing more than 400 fashion fundraising events. This two-part signature event series creates an enhanced atmosphere of giving where community-minded, philanthropic women gather to sip, shop, savor, and support a worthy cause in an exciting, chic and innovative way.
