This is the largest annual fundraiser for Sinfonia Gulf Coast, the only fully professional non-profit orchestra on the Emerald Coast founded in 2005 with the mission of redefining the symphony experience.
The must-not-miss charity extravaganza kicks off January 12 and continues February 17-19 in an artful celebration of wine, fashion, food and fun with four fun-filled “fashionable” events — all of which benefits Sinfonia Gulf Coast and its music education programs.
Wine Women & Shoes 2017 events are made possible by the generous support of local businesses including the following co-presenting sponsors: Krueger, Fosdyck & Associates of Merrill Lynch, The Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, Cox Communications, Silver Sands Premium Outlets, Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, and Visit South Walton.
Sinfonia Gulf Coast music and artistic director Demetrius Fuller announced from Clay Garden & Gifts on 30A in Seagrove:
“We’ve gone as absolutely mad as hatters, and as the Mad Hatter tells Alice: ‘The best of us usually are!’”
Maestro Fuller was having fun with this year’s Wine Women & Shoes event theme: “Mad Hatters’ Garden Party.”
“Don your favorite hat and come escape down the rabbit hole with us into a fairytale world filled with curious wonder as we weave this year’s ‘Mad Hatters’ Garden Party’ theme into this year’s ‘”zinsational” fifth annual Signature Event,” Fuller urged.
