Q: What do I wear to the Red Shoe Gala? A: Think movie premier over the Oscars.

Q: Who do I invite to sit at my table? A: Your entourage of course! Bring your agent, publicist; make up artist and body guard. If theyíre not available though, feel free to bring family, friends, or clients; whoever you want to spend a night in Hollywood with.
Q: Will there be a cash bar? A: There canít be a red carpet event without a cash bar! Signature drinks will be passed around that must be consumed before the night wraps.

Q: What time does it start? A: Cameras start flashing at 6pm when the silent auction, games, and entertainment begin. Dinner will be served at 7pm then a live auction. Fashionably late is not in this season because you donít want to miss your red carpet entrance!
Q: How does the silent auction work? A: Weíve made it faster than saying lights, camera, action. Bring your cell phone to bid through text messaging and youíll be alerted every time someone out bids you. If a phone clashes with your outfit, donít fret, weíll have attendants stationed around with cell phones to assist in your bidding needs.
Q: How will the tables be set up for dinner? A: Tables will seat 8. Sponsored tables, or VIP, will receive a bottle of wine. If youíre a superstar and are a bronze, silver, or gold sponsor, you will receive two bottles of wine. Spend like a movie star and sponsor; itís for a good cause after all.
