Wine, Women and Shoes event to benefit the Ronald McDonald House charities

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The first ever Wine, Women and Shoes Charity Event for the Ronald McDonald House Charities debuted on Thursday.

More than 400 people registered for the event, which offered a unique combination of shoes, jewelry, wine and food.

Organizers said they've been planning the event for about a year and they hope to raise about $100,000 which will stay here in the community.

They say the community really stepped up to donate everything for the event.

"We have 12 vineyards, 40 wines, 17 restaurants, 16 boutiques, and fashion show and we're giving out two prizes that are worth over $12,000 each tonight," said Ronald McDonald House Charities Executive Director Bill Sorochak.

WTOC's very own Sonny Dixon was the emcee for the event.

Organizers also revealed plans for next year. They plan to add the Beer, Guys and Cigars event for the men to attend.
