The main purpose behind Shoe Strut is to solve a community need: New shoes for needy children.  For every guest, one pair of new shoes will be donated to a local child in need through The Salvation Army in partnership with Boscov's.  In addition, 100% of silent auction proceeds directly benefit local children in need.

In 2012 a group of women from our Salvation Army WIN Women INvolved Auxiliary got together to brainstorm ways to solve a community need and support Salvation Army programs and services for 20,000+ local people. 


The Need?  New shoes to properly fit the feet of disadvantaged children.  Some kids avoid school due to their lack of proper footwear, which creates even more problems - for the kids and society!  


The Result? The creation of a new event - The Salvation Army Shoe Strut, featuring a program and silent auction with "all things shoes."  The business community and women loved it!  In its second year, the Shoe Strut quickly sold out and now has moved to a larger venue due to demand.  Last year the event netted $85K, with over 80% of revenue being returned to The Salvation Army HBG for new shoes and for program costs.
