Wine, Women & Shoes

A benefit for Imua Family Services.

December 23, 2010
Maui Weekly
What do a racy, strappy sandal and a sassy sauvignon blanc have in common? What wine would you drink with a pair of red-hot pumps? Dare to drink a sophisticated pinot noir while donning sensible flats? These questions and more will be answered at the 2nd Annual Wine, Women & Shoes benefit for Imua Family Services on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Four Seasons Resort Maui.

Imua Family Services provides comprehensive early childhood development services to children and their families with the support and resources needed to achieve their full potential in life. Each year, over 2,500 community members on Maui and Lana‘i receive support from Imua Family Services through the Infant & Child Development Program, Early Childhood Development Program, Newborn Hearing Screening and Camp Imua.

So slip into your stilettos and grab your “sole sisters,” your boyfriend or even your husband for the 2nd Annual Wine, Women & Shoes benefit including a lively fashion show featuring many of Maui’s most philanthropic women, wonderful wine, notable nibbles, and truly awesome live and silent auctions.

Enjoy the ever-popular “Sip-n-Shop” boutique, where guests will have the opportunity to preview the season’s hottest shoes and accessories.

In addition, the ever-popular “Shoe Guys” will be back for the 2011 benefit. These charismatic local men will “wait” on guests by offering them an up-close preview of featured shoes (carried on silver trays, of course). The “guys” will even help you try on a pair of shoes, as they are always willing to please.

The 2001 event will afford guests the opportunity to sample wines from many of the Napa Valley’s most celebrated vintners, including Gruet, New Age and more. Tasty cuisine, provided by the fabulous chefs at Four Seasons Resort will complete the afternoon, with all proceeds benefiting Imua Family Services.

“Jan. 15, 2011, will be a wonderful time to celebrate women in philanthropy in our community while supporting Imua Family Services” said Executive Director Karen Jayne. “And just imagine, the perfect present under this year’s Christmas tree—two tickets to Wine, Women & Shoes and $100 in Shoe Bucks! What a fun way to ring in the New Year!”

Tickets are $95 for general admission, with VIP tables of 10 selling for $1,500. VIP tickets include reserved seating at the fashion show.
