Wine. Women. Shoes. Three little words that elicit another three words “Count me in!” In its 7th year of hosting Wine, Women & Shoes, Tulsans are more excited than ever for what has become one of the most anticipated weekends on the social calendar. The event will be held in the Grand Ballroom at the Tulsa Convention Center.

The evening culminates with a gourmet dinner, wine service and live auction. The event is exclusively for donors of $1,500 or more. 60s chic cocktail attire + your sassiest shoes (you too, men!). A lucky man and lucky lady will win “Best in Shoe.” Julie Chin will join as the MC, and Auctioneer Karen Sorbo will auction off fabulous vacations, dinners, wine, and fashions.
