The annual Wine Women & Shoes event entertained a crowd of 400 attendees this year.
They headed to the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead to sample wines from Whispering Angel, Sea Sun, Lapis Luna and more; shop designer goods from Tootsies, La Costa Organic Jewelry and Chloé Kristyn, among others; and bid on a bevy of auction items that included a dinner and wine pairing for six at Le Colonial restaurant, a stay at an Italian villa and a trip to L.A. to attend the American Music Awards. They also received hair and makeup touch-ups from Taylor/Brooks Salon pros and oohed and aahed at the flashy footwear entered in the best shoe contest. (The top prize went to a pair of strappy black stilettos with what looked like sequined wings on them!) The fun-filled event is a fundraiser for the Northside Hospital Foundation, which supports the hospital’s women’s cancer and leukemia programs.
