Wine Women & Shoes

The 1st Annual Wine Women & Shoes presented by Publix Charities was hosted at the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort on Saturday, May 4th.  An exciting new event that is focused on celebrating women was chaired by Linda Buccilli, Paula Friona and Erica Morse and backed by an outstanding committee who helped plan this incredible day.

This event featured a glamorous fashion show produced by local boutique Lilac and Lilies and presented by Ed Morse Automotive. Guests sampled wine from 6 different vendors and shopped 8 unique boutiques, who donated a portion of their sales back to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. An impressive new piece to this event was the “Key to the Closet” raffle where one winner took home over $10,000 worth of furniture and designer fashion accessories.   Twenty-Five “Shoe Guy” volunteers attended the event and acted as the ultimate hosts for our 300+ guests.  One of our favorite moments was crowning the “King of Sole,” Joe Booksh, who raised the most money leading up to the event!

Thank you to all of our committee members, sponsors, in-kind donations, guests and volunteers who helped to make this event a success!
