Wine Women & Shoes Fundraiser

June 24, 2017
11:00 am
Clos du Bois Winery

Shoe lovers and ladies who love wine unite! Community leaders in wine and fashion are coming together for the Healthcare Foundation Northern Sonoma County’s Wine Women & Shoes event on June 24, 2017 at Clos du Bois Winery in Geyserville. Presented by E. & J. Gallo the signature event raises money for vital healthcare programs in our region. This afternoon event welcomes more than 400 wine-and-style-savvy guests with a heart for providing access to quality treatment for those in our community who find themselves unable to afford the care they need. Guests will shop the marketplace for shoes, jewelry and fashion accessories while sipping wines from local wineries and enjoying dishes from local chefs. Some 50 dedicated Shoe Guys will serve up this season’s “must-haves” on silver platters, before ushering everyone in for a dazzling fashion preview showcasing our best local fashion and a live auction of exclusive experiences. Participants will also have the chance to win the "key to the closet," a collected bounty of donated treasures. Healthcare Foundation Board Members Amy Mandrier and Lisa Meisner are chairing the event alongside veteran event chairs Tara Jasper and Gina Parmeter, with Lisa Wittke Schaffner, executive director of The John Jordan Foundation, joining this year as honorary chair. Longtime community supporters Barbara Grasseschi and Ariel Kelley are advisors for this year’s event. Internationally celebrated shoe designer Donald Pliner will be in attendance as a special fashion guest. "This is our most important fundraiser of the year, and, with a one-day goal of $850,000, is one of the largest fundraisers in Sonoma County," said Debbie Mason, CEO of the Healthcare Foundation. "This money allows us to support frontline access clinics and other groups that provide medical, dental and mental health needs to our neighbors in the community who otherwise could not afford to get the help they need for their families. We think it is important that if you live here, you give here, and this event is a very fun way to give to those who need it most." Individual tickets are $250 while tables can be reserved for $2,500. To purchase tickets, please visit bit.ly/2017WWS.
