Author: Jen Landress

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida Presents Wine Women & Shoes Orlando 2014Stilettos, wedges, and sandals oh my! It looked like every woman that arrived on the red carpet was ready to compete for “Best in Shoe” at Second Harvest Food Bank’s Wine Women & Shoes event!

On April 12, 2014 over 400 ladies shopped, sipped fabulous wine, and supported our neighbors who struggle for food at this 4th annual event. SeaWorld invited us back to their Ports of Call event space which includes a beautiful room, scenic outside patio, and of course a few animal friends! Thank you SeaWorld Park & Resorts for your support and generosity!

Without further ado I’d like to announce that Wine Women & Shoes 2014 raised $131,688! With these much needed funds Second Harvest will be able to provide $1,185,192 worth in food value for people that need it most because of your generous contributions. Read More …

Strike a Pose with Saks Fifth Avenue

Author: Jen Landress

Some things just go together naturally: Peanut butter and jelly … wine and women … Saks Fifth Avenue and fashion – which is why we couldn’t be happier that Saks Fifth Avenue at The Florida Mall has partnered with us to sponsor, style and direct the fashion show taking place during Wine Women & Shoes on Saturday, April 28.

Taking a cue from Saks’ “Spring Edit” predictions, we can guess that the show will be packed with bright colors, punchy prints and sharp, tailored pieces.

And what fashion event would be complete without shoes? In addition to overseeing the show, Saks will also join us as a vendor, selling shoes by Gucci, Prada and Jimmy Choo, as well as Chanel cosmetics and fragrances and sunglasses from various designers.

Which means that whether you’re looking for the perfect shoes to complement your Wine Women & Shoes outfit … or if you’re feeling inspired after the fashion show, you can continue to give back to Second Harvest  Food Bank.

A big thank you goes out to Saks Fifth Avenue at The Florida Mall for proving that giving back to your community is always in style!
