October's featured event is scheduled to carry four styles of pink shoes where 1/2 of proceeds from every sale will be donated to the Sharon Randolph Foundation."

ABOUT THE SHARRON RANDOLPH FOUNDATION
Sherron and Stacy Hogg, the two founders of the Sharon Randolph foundation have turned grief into glory.
