YWCA's Wine Women and Shoes event begins a LEGACY in Nashville

by Kristen-Leigh Sheft
On Saturday, January 26, an estimated 300 women treated themselves to a day of fabulous fashion, wine, and shopping at the YWCA’s inaugural Wine Women and Shoes event at Grand Avenue in Nashville.  During the afternoon soiree guests sipped on their favorite world class wines from Napa Valley, indulged in delightful hors d’oeuvres and sweet treats from Gigi’s cupcakes while browsing the latest spring collections from local vendors and boutiques. LEGACY Consulting, PR & Events served as a proud media/communications sponsor for the event and owner, Tresa Halbrooks, joined other YWCA supporters as models on the catwalk.  Halbrooks modeled the latest looks in women’s fashion by one of the fashion sponsors, Gus Myer.

In addition, many of us were flattered by one of the dreamy “Sole Men” who paraded beautiful jewelry and shoes around to ladies on a silver platter – a unique touch to the event. 

While the event itself was an extravagant affair, complete with a red carpet entrance replicating a Hollywood premiere, the true beauty was the philanthropic mission: to raise funding and awareness for the YWCA of Nashville.  All event proceeds benefited the Weaver Domestic Violence Shelter in Nashville, a safe haven for women to rebuild their lives as they leave the vicious cycle of abuse and hopelessness. One of the YWCA’s biggest initiatives is to provide battered women an outlet to express their voices and gain strength, which the event was able to do. Many survivors and their stories were featured in a compelling presentation during the fashion show portion of the afternoon.  Within that moment, individuals were reminded of the pain and hurt felt by victims who struggle to escape their violent situation.  As the brave women addressed the crowd, a sense of hopefulness filled the space as patrons became more familiar with the various programs offered by the YWCA.

The YWCA of Nashville is a non-profit organization that LEGACY feels passionately about.  Our entire staff was honored to be involved with such a meaningful event that will make an impact in the lives of others.   For more information about the YWCA of Nashville and how you can help, visit their website at www.YWCANashville.com.
