St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Hosts "Wine, Women & Shoes" Fundraiser for Neglected Children and Youth
On April 15, 2018, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children will hold its 2nd Annual Wine Women & Shoes fundraiser to support programs for abused and neglected children and youth in foster care and homeless in Southern Nevada. 

The event will honor Station Casinos Vice President of Corporate Communications Lori Nelson and will feature a fashion show by Hollywood Couture Designer David Tupaz.

A blend of fashion and compassion, Wine Women & Shoes events are held nation-wide and are all about putting the “fun” in fundraiser. They give women the opportunity to get glamorous with their girlfriends while enjoying incredible varietals from top winemakers – all for a good cause. St. Jude’s Ranch for Children is the only charity with the rights to produce the special event in the state.

Host and Celebrity Auctioneer Chet Buchanan will emcee Wine Women & Shoes, which will be held in the Grand Ballroom at Green Valley Ranch Resort & Spa, Henderson, Nev. on Sunday, April 15th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. In addition to the fashion show, it will include a wine tasting, food, designer shopping, silent and live auctions, and a “Best in Shoe” contest.

The fashion show will be graced with designs by Filipino Designer David Tupaz, who is often considered couture’s new genius. His Hollywood red carpet gowns are often inspired from a distinct rebirth of old Hollywood. Celebrities love David’s simple sophistication that helps each person’s individual taste and personal style stand out. Among his clients are Kris Kardashian Jenner, Julia Roberts, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, William Shatner, Alan Thicke, Jane Seymour, Lisa Rinna, Etta James, Bo Derek, and Annette Bening. Event guests will get a taste not only of David’s luxurious gowns, but also his own custom-designed jewelry, beaded accessories, shoes and intricately handcrafted veils.

“I’m looking forward to the event and honored that St. Jude’s Ranch for Children has selected me as its honoree for Wine Women & Shoes,” said Nelson. “I’ve enjoyed supporting its programs and I’m especially passionate about helping siblings separated in foster care to spend quality time together. The charity has a special place in my heart and I hope others will join me, in a limited or large way, to make a difference too.”

For more than a decade, Lori Nelson has been committed to helping children in foster care. Originally drawn to the cause by Dr. Stephanie Holland, the founder of Child Focus, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children’s Sibling Preservation Program. Lori knew she had to help brothers and sisters separated in foster care to have the opportunity to see each other to build on and maintain their relationships.

“We are looking forward to the event and honored that Lori has accepted our invitation for her to be our honoree,” said St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Executive Director Christina Vela. “We hope the community comes out to support all the work she has done in the Valley not just for our organization, but for so many over the years.”

General admission tickets are $95, VIP Experience tickets include VIP seating, swag bag, and culinary tastes for $150, and VIP Tables for twelve are available for $2,000 by visiting, or by calling 702-294-7117.
