Held at the ever-delightful Salamander Resort & Spa, July’s gathering of the High Heeled Happy Hour was hosted by Rebecca Ray, Senior Vice President & Relationship Manager for Wells Fargo’s Northern Virginia commercial banking team and a member of the board of directors for the Loudoun YMCA.

High Heeled Happy Hour events take place each month under the sponsorship of a female business professional or community leader who selects a charity that will receive a portion of the proceeds garnered that evening. As Ray explained, the work of the Loudoun YMCA is so important to our youth in helping them to achieve their goals in life in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Women (and men) enjoyed delicious libations, tasty treats and shopped select vendors while taking advantage of the chance to network and learn about each other. Attendees are encouraged to flaunt their footwear in order to spark fun, conversation and win prizes. And all for a good cause. ML
