It’s that time of year again. No—not SuperBowl— it’s time for the annual event that celebrates three of our favorite things: Wine, Women & Shoes. This year marks the fifth annual occurrence of this chic fundraiser that supports the children and families of the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
The event co-chairs are once again Criselda Breene and Carola Pimentel who will, along with sponsor Sergio Rossi, make sure the more than 700 gals who turn out for the event at the JW Marriott Marquis on Friday, February 5, have a great time. The event always kicks off with a bit of shopping at the WW&S pop-up marketplace, which features footwear and fashions from top brands and local fashion boutiques.
The wine will flow freely, as the gals bid on silent auctions items and raffle tickets, which this year is called the “Key to the Closet” and offers up a chance to win a Chopard “Happy Sport” white gold diamond watch valued at $19,770.
The event will then move into the main room for a light lunch and a fashion show by Oscar Carvallo Paris. Seven-time Emmy Award Winner Maggie Rodriguez will emcee the show and awards, which will finish with a competition for best shoes of the day—an honor the ladies will put on their coolest footwear in order to win. The event lasts from 10:30am to 3pm. Many of the tables are already sold out (in case you were wondering the Premium Runway Tables went for $4,000), but there still General Tables and General seats available ($250), should you want to join in on the fun.
