The 5th annual Wine, Women and Shoes fundraiser kicked off in Avila Beach Sunday.
Central coast residents could enjoy wine and food tasting, boutique shopping and a fashion show.
The event is put on by the local non-profit RISE, which provides crisis intervention and treatment services to survivors of sexual violence.
RISE says this event is a great opportunity for people to enjoy themselves support a great cause.
“RISE is able to provide services to anyone who has been touched by sexual assault or domestic violence, free of charge. Every dollar that we raised today is used for that,” said Antonia Espinosa, outreach and event manger with RISE.
