Ever since the Stiletto Strut starting circling the Neiman Marcus Downtown block, it’s been a ladies-only affair of champagning, chatting and charity supporting. After all, how many fellas want to don nose-bleed-high heels and stroll the streets in rush hour traffic.

That’s what we thought, too. That is until this year. No, it’s not what you think. The fellas aren’t going to be wobbling around on heels, but they will be doing “their own thang” to help raise money for The Family Place, this year’s Stiletto Strut beneficiary, on Thursday, April 25.

Robert Weatherly is chairing the Loafer Lounge at The Joule. And true to its name, the gents will be loafing around the pool deck until the ladies take to the street. Then they will rise from chairs and cheers the gals from on high.

Afterwards, the boys will be joined by the girls for the Patron Party.

Both groups will have their own tailor-made raffles.

For the girls:

  • $100 tickets have a chance to win
    • Season of Shoe (a pair of shoes every season from NM Downtown)
    • Sewell Gift Envelope (a “mega collection of gift items valued at over $6,000 to more than 30 of the most upscale businesses in town”).
  • $25 tickets have a chance to win
    • Weekend Getaway Package (two-night weekend stay at The Joule, dinner for two in Charlie Palmer, two hours of ESPA time for two and an ESPA gift box from Headington Companies),
    • Lana Jewelry Collection,
    • Dinner and Wine Pairing for 8 (La Madeleine creator Patrick Esquerre will present an evening to remember. You just have to choose the location and guest list.) or
    • 10 Hours with Wardrobe Consultant Debby Allbright.

For the guys:

  • $100 chance tickets have a chance to win
    • Golf Package (Four tickets to the Colonial Golf Tournament with weekend use of a Cadillac and a car wash and four tickets to the Byron Nelson Golf Tournament with a weekend use of a Cadillac and a car wash with car service provided by Uber)
  • $25 tickets have a chance to win
    • Loafers at Hadleigh’s (a pair of the coveted Hadleigh’s Gentlemen’s Smoking Slippers,
    • Dinner for Six With Chef John Tesar (Dinner and wine pairing with Chef John Tesar and car service provided by Uber) or
    • 10 Hours with Wardrobe Consultant Debbie Allbright.

Besides sharing the goal to raise $$ for The Family Place, the Stiletto Strut and Loafers Lounge tickets can be founded here while they still last.
