Local organizers of Wine, Women & Shoes, 2010, joined 500 women from throughout the country and were at the recent WW&S event at the Hall Winery, St. Helena, Ca.

Attending were Co-chairmen Jane Thompson, Jennifer Blackburn, Lana Lopez and Hilarie Blaney; Auction chairman Susan Carr; Sole Men chairman Robyn Thompson, and committee member Amy Dunn.

The group also toured various Napa Valley wineries including Saintsbury, Maisonry, Blackbird, Rombauer, Providence and Honig.  The main event in California benefited Planned Parenthood and was at the Hall Winery. There was wine (from 50 wineries) and food tastings, live and silent auctions, a fashion show (featuring designer shoes) and a marketplace. At the party was Elaine Honig, former Oklahoma City resident and founder of the original WW&S event, which began in Napa Valley six years ago.

On Sept. 16 is the Oklahoma Signature WW&S event at Balliet’s at Classen Curve and it will include wine, hors d’oeuvres and a fashion show with designer shoes and live and silent auctions. Sept. 17th is the Vintner dinner at Red Prime Restaurant and there will be dancing by C+ and an auction to benefit Impact Oklahoma.
