LAS VEGAS – On Sunday, April 28, 2019, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, a community of hope and healing for children and young people, will hold its 3rd Annual Wine Women & Shoes fundraiser to support programs for abused, neglected, and homeless children and youth. The event will honor local Philanthropist Linda Faiss, feature a fashion show by Catou Designer Berny Martin and be attended by local notables such as “ABC Castaways” Reality Show Star and Race Car Driver Matt Jaskol and United States of America’s Mrs. Nevada 2019 Katie Ladomersky.
Wine Women & Shoes events are held nation-wide; St. Jude’s Ranch for Children is the only charity with the rights to produce this special event in the state. A blend of fashion, compassion, and putting the “fun” in the fundraiser, the event gives supporters the opportunity to get glamorous with their friends while enjoying varietals from top winemakers and fashions from a top designer.
Guest will be entertained by Zowie Bowie and Nieve Malandra. Celebrity Host Jason Feinberg will emcee Wine Women & Shoes while Jeff Manning will be the auctioneer. The event will be held at Enclave located at 5810 South Eastern Avenue, Las Vegas, Nev. on Sunday, April 28th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. In addition to the fashion show, it will include a wine tasting, appetizers, brunch, designer marketplace, silent and live auctions, a “Best in Shoe” contest and special recognition of honoree Linda Faiss.
St. Jude’s Ranch for Children has been a part of my heart for nearly four decades,” said Faiss Foley Warren Public Relations & Government Affairs President Linda Faiss. “I can’t imagine a more important cause than to help children who through no fault of their own have been abused and abandoned by their families or society. I’m so proud to serve on this board of trustees that is courageously expanding St. Jude’s Ranch for Children mission with the development of the nation’s first residential Healing Center for children who are victims of sex trafficking. This underserved population has been overlooked by the community at large for far too long.”
“It is because of dedicated community members like Linda that we are able to provide the services we do for our children,” said St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Executive Director Christina Vela. “She is a pillar example of a true philanthropist, community activist and good neighbor. We hope others will follow her lead, and that of Designer Berny Martin in supporting our organization that is dedicated to hope and healing for children and young people.”
The fashion show will feature Catou designs by fashioner designer, style consultant, and custom tailor Berny Martin. Martin’s Catou line gets inspiration from around the world and features edgy, elegant, flirty and sophisticated clothing that makes a statement. His heart is as bold as his styles, which is why he has chosen to support St. Jude’s Ranch for Children.
“The purpose in life is not only to make yourself successful but also to demonstrate how honorable and compassionate it is to be as a victorious person by improving children’s lives who are less fortunate and struggle, by improving their chances of success,” Martin said.
