Soles4Souls on Broadway

Well, we were close to Broadway when we held a Soles4Souls event at Madison Square Garden featuring country singers Kellie Pickler with Taylor Swift. Kellie Pickler’s affinity for shoes is well documented. Her 2006 debut single kicked a no-account-ex-boyfriend to the curb in “Red High Heels,” and her current, self titled album closes with “Going Out In Style,” which expresses her desire for her final resting place…having her ashes spread in shoe department of Saks Fifth Avenue.  But Pickler, whose modest upbringing allowed for little more than the basics, understands the realities of living without. Now she supports Soles4Souls in raising awareness of the need to donate gently used shoes to people in need.

 Since I’ve always wanted to be a secret agent, it was fun watching how security handled the situation with Kellie’s picture taking session. (Don’t quote me, but they didn’t handle it very well. They needed Secret Agent Silvana there.) Employees from Ladies Home Journal enthusiastically helped us also. Everyone enjoyed the few minutes when they could quickly snap pictures of Kellie as she donated shoes to Soles4Souls.

    Hey, (Secret Agent) Silvana. Just saw this post now. Great pics, and it was great meeting you and working with you and Alan at the event. Hope you had an easy trip out of the city. Best of luck with your continued tour!
