5th Annual Wine, Women & Shoes
benefiting Olive Crest
We invite you to join us at Olive Crest's 5th Annual Wine, Women & Shoes event as we welcome hundreds of women to celebrate a girl’s night out at the elegant Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle.
Wine, Women & Shoes will feature wine and culinary tasting stations, enticing auction items, a boutique marketplace, a fabulous “Key to the Closet” raffle, a “Best in Shoe” competition, a luxurious Fashion Show and a crowd of charming "Shoe Guys" to indulge, inspire and pamper our guests throughout the evening.
Wine, Women & Shoes is an event like no other, with a unique blend of fun, fashion and friendship. This is an evening inspired and designed to raise awareness of the urgent need for more Foster Families. There are currently 1655 kids in WA state that need a foster home. Due to the shortage of foster homes, kids are not receiving the care they need, some are even sleeping in DSHS offices and hotel rooms. Please join us and help provide the necessary resources to ensure that at-risk kids right here in our community have a safe home and a loving family.
Olive Crest is dedicated to Preventing child abuse, to Treating and Educating at-risk children and to Preserving the family…“One Life at a Time.”®

WINE WOMEN & SHOES - OUR STORY
ONCE UPON A TIME IN NAPA VALLEY…Elaine Honig was a winery partner who served on the board of a local nonprofit in need of some serious fundraising. As a woman who loves to accessorize, she thought, why not host a fashion event pairing wine & shoes, instead of the usual wine & food? The board embraced the idea, and that playful first fundraiser in 2004 netted $65,000 from 160 attendees. Friends started asking her to bring Wine Women & Shoes to their city. One event became 10, and before she knew it, Elaine was working full time on WW&S, helping nonprofits all over the country raise money for their deserving causes.
More than a decade later, WW&S has thrown more than 300 events in cities all across the U.S. and Canada. Our talented team of graphic and web designers, wine procurement experts, and fundraising and event planning professionals has worked tirelessly to document, systematize, and replicate successes. Our proven formula and best practices help nonprofits attract new donors, catapult their fundraising to new heights, and exceed all expectations… with a uniquely feminine flair!
