The 2017 Wine, Women & Shoes annual charity benefit hosted by the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire (RMHC) is set for 6-10 p.m. April 27 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at 2 West Bay St. in Savannah.
Wine, Women & Shoes raises funds and awareness for families served by the Ronald McDonald House. All proceeds from the event directly benefit the families of critically ill and hospitalized children in Savannah, allowing them to remain nearby when faced with a child’s medical crisis.
Ameris Bank has served as the title sponsor since the inception of this event.
“The Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire continues to make a significant impact within our community through their work with families from throughout our region,” said Greater Savannah Market President Jenny Gentry. “We are proud to be affiliated with an event that supports such a worthy and integral cause.”
In 2016, RMHC provided 4,210 night stays and served more than 295 families. Their family rooms located within The Children’s Hospital at Memorial and on the St. Joseph’s Candler Hospital campus served more than 3,000 families, and the Care Mobile Program served 2,700 children.
Wine, Women & Shoes has raised more than $310,000 to support the RMHC of the Coastal Empire’s three core programs: The Ronald McDonald House, The Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
The event will feature an array of wines, shoes and fashion, a “Best in Shoe” contest, fashion show featuring several local boutiques and auction items. Tickets are $75 for general admission and $150 for VIP admission. One hundred percent of the ticket sales will benefit families served by the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire.
