The fashionable annual fundraiser helps raise critical funding for Olive Crest’s programs including foster care and adoption placement, family counseling services, mental health care, and more. Proceeds from the event directly support children in the Greater Seattle area and help them find their “forever families.”

Guests will experience a shop-for-a-cause marketplace and wine tastings from local wineries such as JM Cellars, O Wines, Coral Wines, Swiftwater Cellars, Cadence Winery, Mood Swing Wines and Chateau Ste. Michelle. Guests will also have the opportunity to pay $25 for the chance to pull a cork from the “Wall of Wines” and take home a bottle from featured vendors.

Guests can enjoy lite bites from award-winning chefs, opportunities to bid on fashion-focused silent auction items, an interactive LIVE auction, and the chance to win the most coveted prize of the night, a “Key to the Closet” that unlocks a prize package valued at over $10,000. The evening concludes with a high-energy fashion show produced by Styled Seattle that will feature fashion from local boutiques including The Finerie, Moorea Seal, and Canopy Blue.

In lieu of traditional models, pairs of community influencers will walk the runway including Ambra and Natalie of the style blog Tallz and SMALLZ and Amy Nelson of The Riveter.

The evening will also highlight volunteer “Shoe Guys” who will support the evening by tray passing champagne to guests, serving as dedicated table hosts, and showcasing merchandise from marketplace vendors on silver platters. The “Shoe Guys” sign on to support Wine Women & Shoes in the spring and fundraise in the community leading up to the event. The “Shoe Guy” who raises the most money for Olive Crest will be crowned the “King of Sole” on-stage at the event.
