Sept 14: Charity Event to Benefit GYN Cancer Research at Northside

Posted on: Tuesday, June 03, 2014


Wine + Women + Shoes = COUNT ME IN!  Who knew three little words could hold enough power to generate one of the most stylish events in Atlanta?  The 2014 Wine Women & Shoes® (WW&S) Atlanta, benefiting research of gynecologic (GYN) cancers at the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute, will be held Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014, 2-5 p.m., at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, 3315 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta.  Buy your tickets now at

Approximately 500 wine savvy, shoe-loving women will sip, savor and shop for a cause as they enjoy an afternoon of wine tastings from some of the country’s top winemakers, shop the latest trends in the multi-designer marketplace, bid on fabulous silent and live auction items, and swoon over the charming “Shoe Guys” serving up this season’s must-haves on silver platters.

WW&S Atlanta also will feature a “Best in Shoe” contest.  Judges will roam the marketplace seeking stand-out shoes in several categories including Sexy Stiletto, Wonderful Wedge, Fabulous Flat and Sensational Sandal.  On the catwalk, guests will see the latest trends in fashion, shoes, jewelry and accessories.  Cynthia Good, founder and CEO of Little PINK Book and former anchor at Atlanta’s FOX5, will serve as mistress of ceremonies.

In 2013, WW&S Atlanta raised more than $30,000 for the research of ovarian and other GYN cancers (uterine and cervical) diagnosed and treated at the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute.  Northside is one of the largest and most respected providers of comprehensive cancer services in the Southeast.  More cases of GYN cancer are diagnosed and treated at Northside than at any other hospital in Georgia.  The hospital leads the way in groundbreaking procedures for better outcomes and less-invasive treatments for GYN cancers and ranks in the top 5 percent of all robotic GYN programs in the U.S.

Dr. Jacob A. Spanier, OB/GYN, is the honorary event chair of this year’s WW&S Atlanta.  Martha Jo Katz, once again, is serving as event chair.

Tickets for Wine Women & Shoes Atlanta are $125 per person and sponsorships are available.  For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 770-667-4047 or visit
