Stilettos & Champagne Pairs High Heels and Bubbly with Philanthropy
November 10 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
On November 10, 2018, This Woman’s Work, a non-profit 501, will hold its annual Stilettos & Champagne Fundraising Reception Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Julia Ideson Library, located at 550 McKinney St, Houston, from 6:30 – 10 p.m.
Stilettos & Champagne is an engaging and interactive event intended to entertain the community through fashionable fun while promoting empowerment for women and girls. Attendees will enjoy a show-focused fashion show, hor d’oeuvres and plenty of champagne. The program will also include the presentation of The IronWomen Awards, where individuals will be recognized for their work in the community to positively impact the lives of girls and women. Fashion vendors and a silent auction help round out the experience. All proceeds from the event support programs aimed at empowering girls and women.
Entrepreneur and philanthropist Carla Lane, CEO of LaneStaffing, created Stilettos and Champagne as a way of combining her passions – champagne, shoes and service to others – as part of an already robust charitable giving program via This Woman’s Work.
“Our programs lead to social and economic empowerment and gender equality,” said Lane. “If we build strong woman and girls, their success will lead to stronger families, communities, and ultimately, a better world.”
“It is important to honor the people who are working tirelessly to help women and girls succeed in a society that often views them as second-class citizens,” said Lane. “This award recognizes their efforts and encourages them to keep pushing forward.”
