Wine, Women & Shoes returns for its third annual at the beach

Published: Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 06:33 PM.

"Our winemakers are coming in from all over the country bringing major well-known brands of wine," said McNeese, "and we have fabulous chefs participating."

The wine dinners have become so popular that more tables and hosts have been added due to the demand.

New this year will be VIP seating at the main event on Sunday for the fashion show and wine tasting. At the VIP tables, the ladies will have their own personal "Sole Mate" male server to bring wine, cheese, and fruit to your table. The tables are for four or six.

Shopping for shoes will also be available.

Sinfonia Gulf Coast is the beneficiary of the WW&S event for the second year. Last year's proceeds netted $100,000 for the non-profit organization. The money goes to the symphony, and helps fund its Music in Education Initiative.

"Wine, Women & Shoes has enabled Sinfonia to quadruple our music education opportunities to the community and school children in Walton County," said Sinfonia Music Director Demetrius Fuller. "It also enables us to partner with schools for Paint the Music, and with Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast for Arts in Medicine. It also provides a linkup with Carnegie Hall for third graders, as well as increase and continue what we have already been doing with guest artists and music in our schools."

Sinfonia Gulf Coast was established in 2006 by Fuller.
