-A +A
It’s time to slip on your stilettos and bring hope to a child with cancer. An afternoon of wine tasting, culinary delicacies, exclusive shoes, and accessory shopping at a Rocklin area estate will be presented by the Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 20. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Keaton Raphael Memorial. The festive event will be held on the Jaeger Estate from 1 to 5 p.m. A fashion marketplace and sensational wines will help guests dispel their daily cares while learning about wine and designer shoes. “This inaugural event will bring stunning fashion and delicious delicacies straight to our neighborhood,” said Robin Trimble, CEO of the Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce, “We can’t wait to bring women from Placer County together to enjoy this great event.” “Shoe Guys,” men from throughout Placer County, will present the season’s must-have shoes on silver platters, all while guests nibble on appetizers, bid on one-of-a-kind auction items, and enjoy a fashion show. The event will benefit the chamber and the Keaton Raphael Memorial, which was founded by Robyn Raphael after losing her 5-year-old son, Keaton Raphael, to cancer in 1998. The organization’s goal is to financially support children during their cancer treatments and increase awareness and research funding to find a cure. “We greatly appreciate the opportunity to be recognized and benefited,” said Robyn Raphael, “The Rocklin Chamber of Commerce is throwing a charming and new type of event that we are happy to be a part of.” More than 300 well-heeled women are expected to attend this unique celebration. Sponsorships are available as a unique marketing opportunity to showcase any business to community members. General tickets are $75; VIP tickets are $175. The VIP package is $250.
