We are pleased to report that The Right to Shoes! was a fabulous success all around!

Our decorating sessions were a popular attraction, with those of all ages gathering at the Water Heater in Old SW Roanoke to create a diverse array of shoes with materials such as metal, paint, and, of course, condoms!  We are humbled at the range of talent and thoughtfulness that artists put into the shoes they produced, and we are delighted at the excitement and awareness that resulted from this event.

These shoes were juried, and many were auctioned to benefit our organization at a cocktail reception held at the new Mezé World Café in downtown Roanoke on March 18th.  We had a robust crowd of attendees that evening who mingled and enjoyed Mezéís incredible food while bidding on the juried shoes and learning more about Planned Parenthood in Roanoke.
