Shoe lovers stepped out in the name of fashionable fundraising Feb. 7 to join Jacky Ferro (wife of Wrapports Chairman Michael Ferro) and Elizabeth Cole for a design-your-own Manolo Blahniks event at Saks Fifth Avenue (700 N. Michigan). The well-heeled women shopped for spring fashions while selecting their shoes’ style, fabric, material and heel height — and at the register, 5 percent of their purchase was donated to the Sun-Times Foundation, which assists community organizations in reaching their fundraising goals. The giving continues all month, as Saks cardholders can choose to donate to the Sun-Times Foundation at checkout through Feb. 28.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
