The Luncheon is sponsored by Yenta + Posha -  A Modern Sole

Yenta + Posha is a ladies shoe company that has a podiatrist approved, patent pending, removable orthotic insole that is built right into the shoe.  No more having to purchase a separate insole that may make your shoes too tight.  We believe that you shouldn't have to choose between comfort and fashion. For many years, women have ignored any future issues they could have with wearing uncomfortable (yet quite pretty!) shoes.  Or women who need orthopedic support have had to choose between stylish shoes that increase their pain or comfortable shoes that may not fit with their style. Despite the fact that it's something the fashion world desperately needs, this niche has remained unfilled for years. Yenta + Posha is here to fill that niche.  We offer timeless, gorgeous shoe designs that also provide the support you need to live your best life.  
Our focus is on designs that look great in the office, in meetings, on the run, you name it or it can simply dress up a casual outfit and keep you walking all day.
But feeling good and looking great isn’t our only focus.  We also are determined to help local and national non-profits and charities through giving back monetarily from each purchase as well as donating shoes along the way.  As soon as we launch Dress for Success Central Virginia will be the first non-profit to receive our reach.  We will also be donating to dog rescue as the inspiration of the company name comes from two very special rescue dogs.
The founder, Brianna Schwartz, has lived in Central Virginia for 12 years and has been a corporate meeting planner for 10 years.  Setting up tradeshows throughout the US and planning international incentive programs for large groups always led to the same conversation with different women across the industry.  Why is it so difficult to find shoes that can be comfortable for multiple days on your feet and could also be dressed up and down?  This passion became a hobby and this hobby grew into a company: Yenta + Posha- A Modern Sole.
