You may not walk away with a pair of Dorothy’s ruby red beauties but you will find fabulous footwear and fashions at Wine, Women & Shoes, the latest fundraising concept from Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Acadiana.

In one afternoon patrons can ogle stylish stilettos on silver trays served up by charming “Shoe Guys,” shop the designer Marketplace and runway style show, opt in for the key-to-the-closet raffle (with a value of $10,000, it includes furniture and other luxury merchandise) and tender bids on a variety of unique packages curated for the occasion, all while nibbling canapés and sipping varietal wines from around the world.

The Best in Shoe contest includes creative categories, like Festival Feet Flats and Hedge Fund Wedge Fund. Each patron will take home a goodie-filled shoe bag of swag, courtesy of Home Bank. Other sponsors include Moss Motors, Ahrens Investment Partners, Brothers on the Boulevard, Entré Nous, IberiaBank, KATC and IND Media.

Opt for the VIP Stiletto ticket at $150 each or the Classic at $100. Tables of 10 are also available, so get the girls together and support The Bigs. Saturday, May 13, at Le Pavillion from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. www.winewomenandshoes.com/acadiana
