Put Yourself In Her HEELS: There’s Something For Everyone

If you’ve never attended our biggest fundraiser, Put Yourself In Her HEELS, this is the year! This is an event where men from around the community put on heels to bring awareness to who the YWCA is and what we bring to the women and children of east central Indiana. Once the heels are on, the men can strut their stuff on stage in hopes to win one of our four trophies.

There are a couple different ways that you can support the YWCA at Put Yourself In Her HEELS:


If you or your business are interested in partnering with our organization, we have five simple sponsorship levels available starting at $500. By sponsoring the event, you will get the opportunity to be marketed across a variety of mediums including our website, social media accounts, print media, and of course at the event. Learn more by contacting Nance Buchert, Executive Director, at nbuchert@muncieywca.org.


A fun way to get involved at the event is to participate, duh! Whether you want to walk alone or with a team of buddies we highly encourage any men to try it. You simply contact Kari Wissel at kwissel@muncieywca.org or call 765-284-3345 with names of participants, and then show up the day of with your heels and any fun props! Bring your families, bring your friends, bring your pet – the more the merrier. There will be a bounce house there for the little ones, as well as backyard games for anyone at the event to play. We do ask that men provide their own heels, but if that is not possible don’t let it stop you from being involved. We have several pairs here at the YW we can bring to the event.


If you are coming to the event just to watch the guys strut their stuff, don’t think for a second that you aren’t a essential part of the event! The way that we raise money (besides business sponsorships) are through votes placed by anyone leading up to the event and morning of. For $5 per vote you can pick the team with the hottest heels, sassiest strut, among others. Vote for your favorite online ahead of time or visit the voting tent to vote with cash or card on site. Help your team get more votes by sharing their link or picture, which can be found on our website and Facebook page. While you’re there, enjoy one of the food trucks set up on location, and sit back for some family friendly entertainment. The event is a ton of fun, and all of the proceeds go right back to the women and children at the YWCA, which makes it even better! Event details below:
