Nothing like fashion and philanthropy coming together! United Way of Broward County hosted a unique event for the 2nd year in a row called Wine, Women & Shoes.
More than 350 influential individuals from throughout the county attended the event April 23.
This soiree raised more than $60,000 for programs like ReadingPals, which helps to improve children’s literacy skills, and Project Lifeline, which provides nutritious food to local food banks and feeding programs throughout the county.
Guests learned about wine, shoes and fashion while tasting tidbits from Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse (Ft. Lauderdale) and sipping on wines from around the world. Of course, the event could not be complete without a fabulous fashion show showing off the latest designs by Julian Chang, Lisu Vega, Nicolas Felizola, Tiffany Chimere and Crustal 4 U, produced by Sobol Fashion Productions. The event was housed at the Gallery of Amazing Things in Dania Beach.
