The 2nd Annual Wine, Women & Shoes Event on November 2nd was a resounding success. Well-heeled guests sipped, shopped, and supported Florence Crittenton Programs services for young pregnant women and their children. Volunteer “Shoe Guys” (many Rotarians) encouraged them to partake of local vendors. Local celebrity models strutted their stuff in a fashion show overseen by clothier Rapport, featuring shoes from Bob Ellis and Shoes on King. Inspired by speaker Jessica Watkins, generous donors helped ensure these young women would have the housing, education, medical care, and counseling they need to become self-sufficient mothers.
Flo Crit Mission Statement: To provide young pregnant and parenting women comprehensive services to help them become self-sufficient and responsible mothers.
Serving as Shoe Guys, these Rotarians helped show off vendor’s merchandise, poured copious amounts of wine, and charmed the VIPs.
