SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY – The 6th annual Wine Women & Shoes benefiting RISE will be held virtually on September 13th, 2020.

This event is a wine and food tasting, boutique shopping experience complete with raffles, silent and live auctions and a fashion show. Kick up your heels for an afternoon of fun and philanthropy, this year from the comfort of your home!

A virtual broadcast will be available through Facebook and Youtube and beginning in August, event guests can purchase Watch Parties to celebrate wherever they feel most comfortable. Watch Parties for 2-10 include wine from local vineyards, swag bags from our sponsors, and optional food. Watch Parties will be delivered by our friendly Soul Mates.

Attendees will have the opportunity to enter a raffle, bid on specially curated items at our silent and live auctions and soak in the season’s latest trends at our fashion show provided by local boutiques. This event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, including: Bank of America, Coast Hills Credit Union, Glenn Burdette, Malik Realty, Mechanics Bank, Radiology Associates, AFX, Idler’s Home, and Dignity Health/ French Hospital.
