Soothe the Sole

You won’t find the latest one-off shoes at Suite 160 or Undefeated—for the freshest footwear, look no further than Art n’ Sole (6:30-10 p.m. May 8 at Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant, 4480 Paradise Road).

Zappos donated 50 pairs of plain white canvas shoes to the event, which artists decorated for the cause. Now the one-of-a-kind footwear will be auctioned to support the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, which provides new shoes and socks to disadvantaged children. Artists Tim Bavington, Marty Walsh, Mike Wardle and Jerry Misko are among the local notables who lent their time and talent to the event.

Art aficionados and footwear fetishists can bid for the shoes during a 90-minute silent auction, and 100 percent of the bids support the charity, along with a portion of the ticket price. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door, and include two drinks.

Goodie Two Shoes hosts another fundraising event on the heels of Art n’ Sole: The second annual Heart n’ Sole is scheduled for May 22 at M Resort.

Just a couple of weeks ago, KFC unveiled “Buckets for the Cure,” giving its famous red a rest in a show of support.
