This past week the Service Club of Chicago kicked off a new fundraising initiative in the shoe department at Saks. Over two hundred footwear freaks and ladies who lunch showed throughout the evening for Champagne and hors d'oeuvres, meet George Malkemus, President of Manolo Blahnik and to shop for a purpose. With 5% of proceeds of sales going back help fund the goals of the Service Club, amidst the flurry of purchases on Saks Cards, we bet you barely had time to check out the footwear at the event. Lucky for you, this was our mission. Check out our sampling of pumps and heels in this handy dandy photo gallery.
