Wine, Women & Shoes…is there a better combination?

We surely don’t think so! We were beyond honored and proud to sponsor this year’s 2014 Wine, Women & Shoes event benefitting Sinfonia Gulf Coast!

Las but in no way the least, the signature event took place on Sunday afternoon from 2pm-5pm in the Magnolia Ballroom at Sandestin’s  Village of Baytowne Wharf. Patrons were treated to an extravaganza of fashion, wine and shoes, along with wine tastings, a silent auction, sole mates (shoe guys), delectable hors d’oeuvres and a fashion show from W by Worth and Dennis & Company. VIP patrons enjoyed reserved table seating stage-side for the fashion, champagne and hors d’oeuvres table side served by their very own Sole Mate.

We had an incredible time supporting such a wonderful cause, dining, dancing, and showing off our fabulous jewels and accessories. We are already counting down until next year’s event, and keeping out eyes open for the most fabulous pair of shoes to arrive in!
