"While women are typically the caretakers of their families, they often fail to take action for their own health," said Josh Davis, President, Spirit of Women. "We hope this auction will catch women's attention by encouraging them to take action for their heart health while simultaneously giving them a wonderful opportunity to raise money for important women's heart health issues."

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.

Carlos by Carlos Santana

"Carlos by Carlos Santana" fashion forward footwear reflects the dynamic passion and energy that defines the music of Santana. Hip, fun and fashionable, Carlos brand shoes are available in a rainbow of contemporary styles sporting the latest trends in materials, colors, shapes and detailing. The vibrant "Carlos by Carlos Santana" line donates a portion of it proceeds from sales to the Milagro Foundation.

Best known for the legendary group that bears his name, Carlos Santana has been an elemental force in global musical culture for almost four decades. Since Santana's landmark 1969 debut album and explosive performance at Woodstock that year, Santana has sold over 100 million records and performed for more than 100 million fans internationally. Carlos' many major awards include a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999's Supernatural, as well as three Latin GRAMMYs and scores of other music and humanitarian honors. As central to Santana's identity as his visionary artistic legacy is his spirit of giving back - in 1998, Carlos and his wife, author Deborah Santana, established the Milagro Foundation, which has granted over $2 million to organizations supporting underserved youth in the areas of health, education and the arts worldwide.
