“We here at PlanetShoes.com love to get involved with the community and we love to give back. We have participated in donations to the Shoe Bank, we raised money for earthquake victims in Haiti and we recently completed a great Earth Day Campaign with proceeds going to CarbonFund.org. When our friends at Hello Stiletto approached us about the shoe ball, we knew we had to get involved,” explained Philippe Meynard, President of Planet, Inc.
The Shoe Ball, organized by the Hello Stiletto Shoe Club and the Accelerated Cure Project for MS brings together shoe enthusiasts in three cities each year to celebrate a love of fashion and fundraising.
“The Shoe Ball gives us at the Accelerated Cure Project for MS a wonderful opportunity to raise funds for our cause. Not only are folks excited to buy tickets and attend, there are raffles, we had guests compete on the catwalk and we had many enthusiastic sponsors, like PlanetShoes.com and Poetic Licence! We love organizing events like this and we can’t wait to work with Planet in the future” said Jane Follansbee, the Special Events Director for the Accelerated Cure Project for MS.
