oh, my! you guys!! am i ever excited about this! the kind folks over at the red shoe society, a group who raises money for the ronald mcdonald house, sent me an email about sharing the word on this awesome charity event! 

on june 9th come join us on whyte avenue for the 3rd annual red shoe crawl all in support of the ronald mcdonald house. 

if you haven't heard about the red shoe crawl before, it really is an outstanding event and such an awesome way to spend the day on whyte ave! getting the full 'avenue' experience, at registration you receive a passport to visit various participating stores, which give you the opportunity to sample an array of signature appetizers and drinks [here is just a sample of some of the awesome vendors this year: tin box, ten thousand villages, mkt, the keg, naanolicious, food fighter, plaid giraffe, sabzy, famoso, marble slab, tutti frutti, crave cupcakes, cha island tea company, chianti's, and planet organic just to name a few!]. so fun, right?!?! tickets are $40 each and the best part - proceeds support the ronald mcdonald house.

i think it would make for a perfect unique family outing or even an afternoon date!

also - red shoes are optional, but i mean, in my opinion that's almost a must!

  7. Hey there. Sounds like a great event, I would love to take part. My hubby and I love doing a good hike in the river valley and then pigging out at one of our local favorites either downtown or Whyte avenue. Either way, exercise followed by food is always a fun endeavor. Good luck everyone!

  15. We love the 104th street farmers' market and I can't resist stopping in at the Duchess when we head downtown.

  16. Red shoes can suits the outfits and make a bold, confident statement. Unfortunately, red shoes can quickly look inappropriate if worn the wrong way. I love to support the Red Shoe Crawl for a good cause . Thanks for sharing this cause .
