Brown Shoe Company Supporting Missouri Baptist Medical Center through Choose Your Shoes 2 Sponsorship

04/11/2012

Brown Shoe Company is partnering with Missouri Baptist Medical Center for the second time as a sponsor of Choose Your Shoes. Proceeds from the event will go toward the purchase of a technologically-advanced breast biopsy bed for the Breast HealthCare Center.

“As a long-standing member of the St. Louis community, Brown Shoe Company believes in supporting organizations like Missouri Baptist, so they can have the latest technology to treat their patients,” said Diane Sullivan, president and chief executive officer of Brown Shoe Company. “Our $20,000 donation is a small price to pay in helping the Breast HealthCare Center, as they strive to provide patient comfort and peace of mind.”

Choose Your Shoes 2 -- a girl’s night out -- will be held from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11, at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac. Admission includes hors d'oeuvres, desserts, wine, music and foot massages. There will also be the opportunity to participate in a shoe raffle, and winners will walk out in a pair of one of spring's latest shoes styles. Raffle items include shoe wardrobes from Vera Wang, Via Spiga and Sam Edelman, courtesy of Brown Shoe Company!
