WWS Save the Date[1].jpgBy Deirdre Bourdet

This Sunday, June 27th, HALL St. Helena hosts one of the most anticipated and delicious female fantasies/worthy cause fundraisers of the year...The Sixth Annual Wine, Women & Shoes Event, benefiting Planned Parenthood!

The concept is genius: seriously awesome wines from a huge range of blockbuster and sleeper wineries, delectable snackage from local masters of wine country cuisine, a Moulin-rouge inspired fashion show, live and silent auctions full of ridonculous treasures and one of a kind experiences, and fabulous footwear peddled on silver trays by attentive, eager to please men in the prime of life.  Oh, and you're in beautiful St. Helena on a gorgeous summer day...  and oh, a portion of every sale benefits Planned Parenthood of Shasta-Diablo counties.
wws pic.jpgThis year's celebrity host is Steve Brady from Sex and the City--David Eigenberg, for those of you who know the cast members by their real names.  Apparently, "Steve" will be circulating at some point for the guests' delight, in addition to selling his personal attention and company at your table to the highest bidder in Lot 1 of the live auction.  Not coincidentally I think, Lot 2 is a Three Magnum vertical of Pahlmeyer Chardonnay, Demi Moore's seduction wine of choice in Disclosure.  If you're unsuccessful with the first two, though, many more amazing experiences are yours for the buying, including the opportunity to be whisked away in a Cadillac escalade for an afternoon of wine and song led by "Prince Charming" Ryan Hill of Hill Family Estates, as well as a personal lesson in Champagne sabering led by St. Supery's CEO, Emma Swain complete with lunch, S. Anderson bubbly, and a saber of your very own.  Check out the full catalog here and plan your bids accordingly.

Before you have to bid in the live auction though, you will be plied with tasty treats and plenty of excellent wine to limber up your wallets for the cause.  Don't resist, it is futile.  And be honest, ladies, you're hard pressed to imagine a better way to spend a summer Sunday.

wwspic2.jpgThe Wine, Women & Shoes event takes place from 2 to 6:30 pm at the HALL St. Helena location, 401 St. Helena Hwy. in St. Helena.  The live auction and fashion show begin at 4:30 p.m.
