BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Spirit of Women Health Network announces the February 5 opening of bidding for the Spirit of Women Celebrity Red Shoe Auction, an online charity auction of celebrity-autographed footwear that will benefit several health organizations, including the National Stroke Association and Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.)

The Celebrity Red Shoe Auction is the national cornerstone of "The Red Shoe Initiative", a national health education and action campaign that aims to encourage women on a local level throughout the year to take important steps for their heart health. The auction precedes Spirit of Women's "Day of Dance for Women's Health", a fun educational event involving dancing and health screenings, which takes place on February 23, 2008 in more than 65 communities across the United States.

Each of the following celebrities has autographed a single shoe of the pairs donated by "Carlos by Carlos Santana" footwear, which will be on display at http://www.redshoeinitiative.org and available for bidding from February 5 through February 14 on eBay by searching "celebrity autographed red shoes".

In addition to the online auction, "The Red Shoe Initiative" will include local "Red Shoe" events in communities across the United States. Each event will take on the flair and character of the community that serves as a host. These events will consist of evening receptions, fashion shows, and various activities in skating rinks and other venues that encourage women to take action for their heart health.
