Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Coastal Empire will host its fourth annual Wine, Women & Shoes, on Thursday, April 27 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency, located at 2 W Bay St, Savannah, GA 31401.

Change your Shoes, Change a child’s life. With 11 pouring stations set up featuring 30 different wines, as well as food from over 16 local restaurants, the signature fundraiser for the RMHC is a night of tasteful fashion for a good cause.

Shopping stations will be set up throughout, and the event will have a live auction and fashion show. During the Key to the Closet and Key to the Cellar game, two winners will walk away with over $10,000 of items and merchandise. Guests are also encouraged to mingle with RMHC Shoe Guys to be considered for the “King of Sole” contest.

All the proceeds from this event will directly benefit the RMHC to ensure care for the critically ill children and their families.

“This year marks our House’s 30th anniversary,” said Bill Sorochak, executive director. “We are proud to feature 12-year-old Brian Murkison and his family. A 2011 car accident brought the entire family to the Memorial Hospital Campus. After a couple of days, the family was released from the Hospital except for Brian who remained in a coma for over a month. The Murkison’s have been a part of our Ronald McDonald House family ever since. We can’t thank the community enough for helping this family and the other families we host at the House.”
