Red Shoe Lunch

Please join us for our 13th Annual Red Shoe Lunch. The event will take place on Saturday, February 25, 2023 from 12p-3p at Chateau Elan Winery & Resort | 100 Rue Charlemagne Dr, Braselton, GA 30517.


Supporters! 2023 marks our 13th consecutive year hosting this event. We have done a great job raising awareness about heart disease; however, we have not done the best job raising funds. Prior to securing our non-profit status, all proceeds went to the American Heart Association (AHA). To date we have raised over $21,000 for AHA; however, we haven’t been able to cover the costs for the lunch or raise money for our grassroots efforts (helping those in the communities we live).


Now that we have secured our non-profit status, all proceeds from the lunch will go to the Veronica Blount Memorial Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We will also make our annual contribution to the American Heart Association via the Veronica Blount Memorial Fund with AHA.


Due to the rise in food costs and service costs, we were forced to increase our ticket sales this year. We suggest our supporters take advantage of the Early Bird ticket sales which will end on January 22, 2023. A portion of all ticket sales will be tax deductible. Please check the ticket details for more information.





We will host an expansive raffle for the 2023 Red Shoe Lunch! The raffle is always a fun highlight of the event and this year's raffle will truly be a highlight! 

Raffle items will range from $1 - $100. Tickets can be purchased at the event using cash and credit. You cannot purchase raffle tickets with checks.

Under IRS guidelines, tickets purchased for raffles are not tax deductible. Winners must be present to purchase raffle tickets, but do not need to be present to win. If you leave the event prior to the raffle drawing, please make sure we have your contact information and raffle ticket numbers. 


We have a $10,000 fundraising goal for the 13th Annual Red Shoe Lunch. Please visit our fundraising campaign page. You can also register as a team lead to host your own fundraising efforts for the lunch. 

The Veronica Blount Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 

As always, lunch will be a plated meal and not a buffet. This year we will serve a dual entree of salmon and baked chicken. Please list special dietary requests when you purchase your event tickets. 

Parking: there is free parking at Chateau Elan. Our private ballroom (Debussy) has a private entrance from the parking lot; please look for the red balloons so you can park closer to the ballroom's entrance.

Tickets: All guests age 2 and over must have a ticket. Guests under the age of 2 must sit in an adult's lap. Meals are only provided to paying guests.

Companion Tickets: Please purchase tickets for everyone in your party on the same order. Seats are assigned at the lunch and while we are not able to guarantee parties can sit together, we do prioritize seating those that are on the same ticket order.

Attire: We do not have a dress code; however, we do strongly encourage business casual attire. While most guests (males and females) wear red shoes, it is not mandatory.

Hotel Accommodations: We have secured a discounted rate for hotel rooms at Chateau Elan. Please visit our website for more details. The discount rate will end on January 24, 2023.

Covid Protocol: We will not require proof of vaccination and masks are optional. We advise everyone to be considerate of others and refrain from attending if you are feeling unwell. Tickets are non-refundable so please invite someone else to attend in your absence or donate your seat (email: info@redshoelunch to donate your unused seat).
