Northside Hospital will present a woman-focused fundraiser to help women battling cancer.  

Wine, Women and Shoes, set for 2 to 5 p.m. Sept. 8 at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, will benefit research of gynecological cancers such as endometrial, ovarian and cervical.

These cancers are often diagnosed and treated at the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute. More cases of GYN cancers are diagnosed and treated at Northside than any other hospital in Georgia, according to the hospital system.

Women from throughout metro Atlanta are invited to “sip, savor and shop for a cause,” according to information from the hospital system, as they “enjoy an afternoon of wine tastings from some of the country’s top winemakers.”

They will also have a chance to shop for the latest designs in footwear, which will be “served up on silver platters” by “the charming Shoe Guys.”

Guests will also have an opportunity to bid on silent and live auction items, including a Napa Valley getaway, a week’s stay at St. George Island in Florida and artisan jewelry.

The event will also offer a “best in shoe” contest in which judges will roam the marketplace, seeking stand-out shoes in different categories.

On the catwalk, a fashion show of the latest trends in clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories for men and women will be presented.
