On November 1, we’ll host a First Friday event at our store, Sockshop and Shoe Company in Downtown Santa Cruz, from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM. We’re sponsoring this activity to support Hospice of Santa Cruz County. There will be music, art, refreshments, and wine on Friday night.  A portion of all purchases made during the entire weekend will go to Hospice of Santa Cruz County. We’re donating some great shoes that will be raffled off as well. We think it’s important to support our community and Hospice is such a worthy organization, which makes sponsoring this event such a pleasure. We hope the event makes people more aware of the compassionate care provided by Hospice of Santa Cruz
