Event to benefit charity work
The Wine, Women & Shoes fashion fundraiser will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday to benefit World Neighbors.
The event combines wine tasting and shoe shopping to raise money for the Work of Women membership program, which aids women in isolated villages throughout the world where World Neighbors works.
“Instead of giving them things, they invest in people and their power so it's more sustainable,” said Dr. Susan Chambers, fundraiser chairman.
Wine, Women & Shoes will be held at the Farmers Public Market, 311 S Kline Ave. Participating retailers include Ruth Meyers, Artemis Boots, Pink Sugar Shoe Boutique, Heirloom Shoe, Carlos Falchi and CK & Company. Each will donate 20 percent of sales to the program.
Eight vintners, all owned by or run by women, will provide the wine. A fashion show, raffle and auction will round out the event.
Tickets are $100 and can be purchased in advance by calling 418-0407 or at www.workof
