Wine, Women, and Shoes 2017
Several months ago, a friend sent an email to a group of us, asking if we wanted to attend the annual Wine, Women, and Shoes event for Cancer Alliance of Naples. It didn’t take me long to make my decision, because the charity is wonderful. Founded in 2002, C.A.N. helps cancer-stricken local families and individuals through services, counseling, nutrition programs, college tuition for survivors, and more.
I arrived early at the venue–the Naples Beach Hotel Convention Center–so I could film some of the attendees in their pretty attire. To see them, highlights from the event, and more, scroll to the bottom of this page for the video. To view photographs of what some of the women wore, see “Wine, Women, and Shoes 2017: What They Wore”. For what I wore, keep scrolling down this page.
I hope you enjoy this inside peek at it all.
