News and Upcoming Events


Neely Powell, Founder of Charleston Shoe Company enchanted us at the September 24 Luncheon at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa.

Sharing stories about how she started Charleston Shoe Company, how they are made and the challenges she faces as a woman in business, Neely’s boundless energy made all 455 WAHHI Women in attendance fall in love with her! 

And, who doesn’t love to shop for shoes? Neely brought her sales team and set up a Trunk Show (she started her business selling shoes from her car) so that WAHHI could have its own private shopping experience. The Trunk Show was a win-win. We loved the Show and Charleston Shoe Co. sold 75 pairs of shoes!

Interest Group sign ups were a huge success! Beginning at 10:00am it was standing room only as WAHHI members toured the room to find their favorite Interest Groups to join.

A record number of 25 women became new members of WAHHI at the Luncheon. The energy and enthusiasm of all who attended was too inviting to pass up! 

The first WAHHI Lowcountry Lobster Fest was launched at the luncheon and attendees were lined up to purchase their tickets for the November 14, 2019 event.

Members also stepped up to support WAHHI Charitable Fund by purchasing LOGO insulated bags and mugs for a total of $525 in funds raised.

In typical WAHHI style, you opened your hearts and your closet to donate more than 200 pairs of gently worn shoes to Circles 4 Success. The families who receive this generous gift of shoes will experience your love with gratitude! 


Stay tuned for details about the December 2, 2019 luncheon at the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort featuring keynote speaker John Morris Russell, Conductor of the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra and the Cincinatti Pops. It’s going to be an Artistic Celebration!
