Martinis, women and shoes, oh my

The Heartland Women's Leadership Council hosted its signature event, “Martinis, Women and Shoes,” at The Gallery Event Space located above Bristol in the Power & Light District on Aug. 30.

Attendees — well, those of the female persuasion — came in their most “bodacious” pair of shoes, which ranged from cute flats to strappy sandals to funky, runway-worthy platforms, many of which were accented with rhinestones, glitter and even feathers.

With Kelly Jones of KCTV5 and JT Quick of Hot 103 Jamz serving as MCs, the shoe fashion show featured dozens of all-season styles from Kansas City-area stores, including J. Hathaway Shoe Boutique in Leawood, Lipstick Shoe Bar in Westport and Dillard's.

By the end of the almost-30-minute show, I found myself realizing I could watch shoes going up and down a runway for at least three hours. One thing all women have in common is no matter your size — short, tall, thin or wide — we can all look super sexy in the right pair of shoes (and, typically, they always fit in your size!).

“Ladies looking good and doing good for the community,” as described by Quick, a few HWLC members took the runway to receive recognition for their efforts in planning the event. The nonprofit council seeks “to empower, coach and serve as a catalyst for women of diverse backgrounds to engage in civic leadership roles and service projects that have a positive impact on the greater Kansas City region.”

The event wrapped up with a shoe contest among the women in the audience. Kansas City, Mo., City Councilman Jermaine Reed announced the top three winners, who were voted on by a group of men after taking their own trip on the catwalk. Finalists were selected by receiving single roses from the men, a la The Bachelor. (Yours truly was offered and accepted a rose, but my shoes did not stand up to the three “bodacious” winners.)

Her Kansas City was proud to be the presenting sponsor of the event, which also featured a silent auction fundraiser benefitting Hope House, a facility serving domestic violence victims.

Such a nice fashion and very creative like the πώληση χρυσού παγκράτι. I really love attending this type of event because I can see a lot of creative designs and it makes me enjoy and it reminds me about the πώληση χρυσού περιστέρι.

Your business is vulnerable to disaster, and may not be adequately prepared. A solid disaster recovery plan can mean the difference between your company’s survival or closing its doors. Even a few days of down time can mean millions of dollars lost.

Being prepared is the key to successful business continuity planning. This includes building a cross-functional team to create an action plan, smoothly implementing your plan during a crisis, and auditing your successes and best practices afterward to better prepare for the next disaster. Business continuity planning is key to increasing your company’s uptime during and after a disaster.
