From a First Year Event: “ From start to finish the level of support surpassed any of our expectations. I am so happy to report that our event sold out at 400 guests with over 60% being newly introduced to Fresh Start Women’s Foundation and the event exceeded all of our revenue goals!”

“ Each year, this event brings a variety of new and enthusiastic supporters to Family Scholar House, because WW&S attracts many people beyond our existing donor base. Wine Women & Shoes has become the "must attend" social event in Louisville.” ~ CATHE DYKSTRA, Family Scholar House
