Miami Children’s Hospital Makes Philanthropy Fashionable

Miami Children’s Health Foundation’s 3rd Annual Wine, Women & Shoes Presented by Roger Vivier Paris Takes Place February 6th

Ladies, mark your calendars! The 3rd Annual Wine, Women & Shoes (WW&S) presented by Roger Vivier Paris benefiting the children and families at Miami Children’s Hospital will be back at the Coral Gables Country Club on February 6th.

“Wine, Women & Shoes is one of our favorite annual events,” said Lucy Morillo, President & CEO, Miami Children’s Health Foundation. “It’s an afternoon filled with fashion, fun and friendship with the common purpose of supporting world-class pediatric healthcare.”

Roger Vivier, the fashion house credited with the design of the first stiletto heel, presents the 2014 WW&S event. Guests will be treated to a sophisticated day of wine tasting, a silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind items, a delicious lunch as well as a fashion show presented by U by Kotex with fashions from Neiman Marcus Coral Gables and a creative shoe contest. The “Shoe Guys” will also be in attendance, literally showcasing the latest women’s fashions on silver platters. Media sponsors include Clear Channel Media + Entertainment and Ocean Drive Magazine.

Created for women who enjoy fine wine, great style, and supporting a noble cause, Wine Women & Shoes is one of the fastest-growing charity event series in the country. The popular national fundraising event platform has been a big hit in South Florida. Last year, WW&S helped Miami Children’s Hospital raise nearly $450,000 in a single afternoon. Organizers said ”that after 150 WW&S events nationwide in the past eight years, Miami Children’s second annual WW&S event raised the most funds of any single WW&S.”

“We are so grateful for the extreme generosity of the women in South Florida, as well as our committee members and our Event Co-Chairs, Criselda Breene and Carola Pimentel. The support of this amazing community of women helps us provide some of the best pediatric care in the world,” said Morillo.
