If you’re shopping for shoes this weekend you are not going to want to miss Madison Avenue’s Cinderella Saturday event. Fifteen Madison Avenue boutiques will be giving shoppers free pairs of shoes and donating money to support the Central Park Conservancy.
It’s really simple: When you shop for new shoes at participating retailers and pay at the register, you may be a lucky winner! Along with a free pair of shoes, winners will have their photo taken in Central Park and will receive an invitation to a reception in the Park later that afternoon.
Participating retailers include, Bally, Barneys New York, Calvin Klein, Charlotte Olympia, CH Carolina Herrera, Devi Kroell, DKNY, Fogal, Galo Shoes, Jimmy Choo, Longchamp, Max Mara, Porsche Design, Stuart Weitzman and Stubbs & Wootton. Over the course of the day 45 lucky shoe-buyers will walk away with a free pair.
Then next week, you can slip on that new pair of Cinderella slippers (or stilettos) and participate in a quarter-mile Walk in the Park. The walk will begin at the Central Park Conservancy tent on corner of Madison Avenue and 67th Street at 11:00am and continue in Central Park to conclude at East 72nd Street off Fifth Avenue. You can register for the Walk in the Park right here.
