Stilettos & Sneakers Lifestyle Show for Women
Overview of Event
We are back for our tenth year! After nine successful events from 2009 to 2018, the Stilettos & Sneakers Lifestyle Show for Women is making it’s return to the Ice Palace this fall! On Saturday, September 28th, 2019, the 5-hour event will feature vendors, activities and displays devoted to women of all ages.
The event has two areas; the hall will be set up with vendor booths and food, while the gym will feature more vendors, and our silent purse auction & sale. Anyone with a business/activity/organization related to women in Georgina is eligible to be a vendor at the show.
Giving Back to the Community
A Purse Auction & Sale will take place during the event. Donations of new and gently used purses will be accepted at a few locations throughout Georgina. 100% of the proceeds will go to Breast Cancer Screening at Southlake’s Integrated Screening Program. Vendors who choose the “Stiletto Package” will donate an item to the auction to receive a discount on their vendor space.
This is a free event for the community. Swag bags will be distributed to the first 300 women through the doors as a handy carry-all at the show. Vendors and sponsors have the opportunity to have their brochures or goodies pre-stuffed into the bags.
We are thrilled with how the show was received in Georgina and are gearing up to make this year bigger and better than ever. Over 600 women walked through the door each year...a very targeted demographic for your business.
We have created a strong sponsorship program that will maximize your company’s exposure leading up to and during Stilettos & Sneakers. Sponsorship opportunities are available, starting at just $250 and include some wonderful advantages; logo recognition and vendor space are among the packages. For more information about becoming a sponsor...please contact us.

This option is available to businesses that are unable to be there but still want to spread the word about what they do.
