The festival serves as a fundraiser for the Sonia Plotnick Health Fund, which helps Tampa Bay area women who can't afford health care. The fund's board president, Charlene Metrano, said that between 3,000 and 4,000 people attended Saturday's event. "We hope it will be bigger and better every year," Metrano said.
