Created for women who enjoy fine wine, great style and supporting a noble cause, the 4th Annual Wine, Women & Shoes event is one of the fastest-growing charity event series in the country. The popular national fundraising event platform has been a big hit in South Florida. Nearly 500 of Miami’s most philanthropic and fashion-forward ladies gathered last year to celebrate the 3rd Annual Wine, Women & Shoes, and Wine, Women & Shoes helped Miami Children’s Hospital raise nearly half a million dollars in a single afternoon.
Guests will attend an afternoon filled with fashion, fun and friendship with the common purpose of supporting world-class pediatric healthcare. They will be treated to a sophisticated day of wine tasting, a silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind items, a delicious lunch as well as a fashion show with fashions from Neiman Marcus Coral Gables. This year’s event co-chairs are Criselda Breen and Carola Pimentel.
About Miami Children’s Health Foundation
Miami Children’s Health Foundation (MCH Foundation) is a not-for profit 501(c)(3) established to create a world-class pediatric hospital so no child needs to leave South Florida for superior medical care. “Funding World-Class Care” and following the principle that all children deserve state-of-the-art pediatric care with no financial boundaries, MCH Foundation, now a part of the newly-formed Miami Children’s Health System, has helped the 289-bed Miami Children’s Hospital become a leader in pediatric healthcare with more than 40 subspecialties, the largest pediatric neurology center in the United States, a top provider of cardiology and neonatology services, and a Research Institute conducting in excess of 200 clinical trials and protocols. Currently, MCH Foundation is dedicating all its resources to Together For The Children, The Campaign for Miami Children’s Hospital, which aims to raise $150 million by 2017 and will help fund MCH priorities, including the expansion and enhancement of the Emergency Department, as well as the construction of a new Advanced Pediatric Care Pavilion, and expanding its Global/Telehealth endeavors.
For the fourth year in a row in 2014-15, Miami Children’s was once again the Florida hospital with the most pediatric programs ranked by U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals.” With two programs included among the top 10 in pediatric subspecialties, Miami Children’s is also the only hospital in the state with programs ranked among the top 10. Miami Children’s Hospital is one of 170 pediatric hospitals in North America affiliated with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® and South Florida’s only freestanding hospital dedicated exclusively to children.
