Tomorrow's shoe event at the Lincoln Center is all about the kids

The song says "it's all about the shoes." But the big shoe event this Thursday, August 11 from 5:30 to 9:30 pm at the Lincoln Center is more than singing and dancing, an auction for art shoes and chocolate shoes, and fabulous fashion. It's all about raising money for back to school shoes for 1,000 Spokane kids who otherwise wouldn't have them. You can help and have a lot of fun too. (Even Ed Clark will be doing a song and dance and stand up comedy set. You don't want to miss that!)
