Marketplace 25Wine Women & Shoes 2016 Was a Success !

Special thanks to all of our sponsors, attendees, volunteers and supporters for making our 3rd Annual Wine Women & Shoes fundraiser event a success!  Our 3rd Annual Wine Women & Shoes fundraiser event was held Saturday, September 24 11am-3pm at the newly renovated Jessie Ball DuPont Center!   All funds raised during Wine Women & Shoes will be used to support the mentoring programs and youth of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida. We truly appreciate Mrs. Chevara Orrin and Mr. Kevin Holzendorf for serving as wonderful hosts during the event.

Our guests experienced a fun-filled afternoon sampling fifteen different kinds of delicious wine and a delectable mimosa bar supplied by our Wine Partner, Southern Glazers. We would like to also thank our Marketplace Vendors for providing a wonderful shopping experience for our guests:  F&W Style, The Pink Nickel Boutique,  House of Linnic, Stella & Dot, II Embers, TY Park Candles and Carla Shoes & Accessories.

Congratulations, to the winner of this year’s Key to the Closet Raffle who went home with numerous items valued at more than $5,000!  Our glamourous fashion show featured the last style trends from The Pink Nickel Boutique as well as Rosenblums who outfitted our wonderfully talented and beautiful local celebrity guest models.
