wine, women and shoes

The only thing better than giving back to the community is giving back AND having a blast while doing it. On Saturday, I attended the Wine, Women & Shoes fundraiser to benefit The Sacramento Children's Home. Combine two of womens' favorite things (wine and shoes), and what do you get...an amazing afternoon. All for a good cause. Let me rephrase that...for a wonderful cause!

The Sacramento Children's Home has been caring for some of the most vulnerable children and families in our community since 1867 - making it the oldest active charity in Sacramento. Their programs focus on ending the generational cycle of child abuse and neglect. Needless to say, they provide many critical services to our community and the turnout (sold out!) reflected that. The total funds raised at this event are still being calculated but the preliminary estimate is $160,000!!! Great job, Sacramentans.

If you missed Wine, Women & Shoes, that's too bad. It truly was a fantastic event. The weather was absolutely perfect for enjoying the serene atmosphere at the Mohamed Quail Run Estate. The food being sampled was delicious and some of the region's best wines were being poured. Thank goodness we are so close to Amador and Napa Valleys. Exciting shopping opportunities included high-end shoes and accessories. And to top it all off...a glamorous fashion show! Take a look...

Yeah. So like I said...it was a phenomenal event for a very worthy cause. If you attended this event, had a great time, and feel compelled to give a little bit more. Or if you weren't able to make it, but would like to support The Sacramento Children's Home, please click here.
