Wine, Women and Shoes
Fine wine, designer shoes, spectacular shopping and tons of fun - all for a good cause! Read on to see how you can be a part of this sole-ful Impact 100 event.

Wine and shoe pairings are a signature attraction of the Wine Women and Shoes fundraiser for the Impact 100 Endowment Fund

Merlots and Manolos. Choos and Chardonnay. Sparkling vino and sparkly Valentinos. You'll see all these pairings and more at the October 14 Wine, Women & Shoes (WW&S) event benefiting Impact 100.


The event, which will take place from 6:30-11 p.m. at the Cincinnati Museum Center, will raise money for the Impact 100 Endowment Fund, which empowers Impact 100 to continue to make significant grants in our community while strategically planning for the future.


WW&S is the fastest-growing charity event series created for women by women in the U.S. This event series is 053011FASHION3.jpgproduced in more than 20 markets, from Hawaii to Florida, and each event is attended by an average of 300–500 affluent women ages 30–55+. Since its inception six years ago, these major annual fundraisers have raised just over $6 million for women's and family-related causes.


Guests will sip, savor, and shop their way through an evening of fashion and compassion. The event will feature a strolling wine and food tasting and boutique shopping experience with live and silent auctions and a high-energy fashion show that come together for a few fabulous hours of fundraising, camaraderie and shopping. If that's not enough, young attractive "shoe guys" will be moving through crowd, delighting and displaying designer shoes on silver serving trays! Hello, heaven!


WW&S will feature a "Key to the Closet" raffle. Guests can purchase "keys" (raffle tickets), and one lucky winner will take home the bounty of the "closet" — a collection of donated fashion items, gift cards, gift certificates and other treasures.
