Diane Heiken and Melisa Moss are co-chairs of Wine Women & Shoes Orlando event. We recently asked them to write about their experience and why they got involved with Wine Women & Shoes. Second Harvest Food Bank is so grateful to have such devoted individuals at the head of this event.
When we were approached by our friend, Julie Butterstein, to join her on the Committee for Wine Women & Shoes we thought how could we resist an event with a title like that! Then after learning the event was a fundraiser benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, that was the “icing on the cake”.
We wanted to give you some background info:
Co Chair, Diane Heiken has been planning events for years; whether for a past employer, her own wedding, family birthdays, holiday parties or neighborhood social events. She enjoys every stage of the planning process and is very excited to be working on an event which benefits such a great cause.
Co-Chair, Melisa Moss is the Marketing Director for Moss Krusick CPA’s in Winter Park. In her firm she plans many corporate events, as well as family birthdays and holiday parties. The firm has several Central Florida non-profit clients. Melisa is dedicated to giving back to the community and looks forward to creating a great event for Second Harvest Food Bank.
Co-chairing Wine Women & Shoes brings an even greater meaning knowing that we will be using our experience in event planning to benefit those less fortunate.
Wine Women & Shoes is a wine pairing, shoe shopping fundraiser to help raise money in the fight against hunger here in Central Florida. The afternoon will feature delectable hors d’oeuvres prepared by Orlando’s finest Chef Jean Louis, fine California wines and the best shopping from all around Central Florida, along with an impressive silent auction. This is the only event of its kind that 100% of ticket sale proceeds support Second Harvest.
Hunger is a growing problem in our community. Co-chairing Wine Women & Shoes is just the beginning of our efforts and relationship with Second Harvest Food Bank. We hope that the women of Central Florida will join us in the fight against hunger.
Hope to see you at our first Wine Women & Shoes event! Be there. Be fabulous!
