Black Tie International:
Vince Canning Stiletto Race

A Fab and Funky Race for a Cause



DELRAY BEACH, FL -  Men and women alike are invited to slip on a pair of stilettos and sprint, strut or sashay 75 meters for the 2nd Annual Vince Canning Stiletto Race, benefiting the Achievement Centers for Children & Families. Entrants compete in a variety of race categories for the chance to win a themed prize along with the bragging rights.


Join the fabulous Stiletto Race in downtown Delray Beach on Thursday, November 21st. Beginning at 6pm, stiletto-donning racers will line SE 4th Avenue as they race their way toward the Atlantic Avenue finish line, and all for a great cause to boot. The Vince Canning Stiletto Race was created by Vince Canning Jr.’s niece, and now owner of Vince Canning Shoes, LaRonda Denkler to celebrate the store’s 60th year on Atlantic Avenue. Vince Canning spent decades giving to those in need, reaching out to all walks, races and religions. Among his many philanthropic activities, Vince continuously supports the Achievement Centers for Children & Families since its inception. LaRonda Denkler states, “This funky community event continues Vince’s legacy that still permeates the businesses, neighborhood and hearts that make up our
 Village by the Sea.”


For those entrants with a competitive spirit, prizes will be awarded to each category winner including: Women’s 75 Meter Dash, Men’s 75 Meter Dash, College Competition, 65+ Silver Sneaker, Waiter Race, Relay, Best Shoe, Sexy Strut and Costume Grand Supreme. Anyone with a passion for supporting a local nonprofit, with a mission to develop and aid the community, is encouraged to sign up- that means you too men!


Racers who dare to run atop their highest heels pay a $25 preregistration entry fee, registration after November 15th is $35 per participant. Proceeds directly support the Achievement Center’s efforts to provide a nurturing and educational environment for children and families in our community facing the effects of poverty.


The Gold Stiletto Sponsors Lumitec, PeterMark Salon and SK Quality Roofing, Inc. are joined by Dada, Orthaheel, Mark Lemp Footwear, Allenby Dermatology, Island Air Conditioning, Mark Gerretson Memorial Fishing Tournament and Stuart & Shelby Development, Inc.
