Go Red for Women Soiree
Destination to Your Personal Wellness
The American Heart Association held its Go Red for Women Soiree: Destination to Your Personal Wellness, educating and empowering women across Miami with tools and information about heart disease and its prevention. The celebration took place at Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach.
As guests embarked on their journey, they enjoyed heart-healthy hors doeuvres and beverages, relaxing massages provided by Canyon Ranch Miami Beach Hotel and Spa, lipstick touch ups and makeup consultation, provided by Estee Lauder from Macys Aventura, and some women even left with bright red hair extensions, thanks to Primp Salon and Hair Extension Boutique. Three 20 minute destinations offered tips and techniques on heart care and well-being. Topics included Cooking for your Heart, More Yoga, Less Stress, and Conversations about the Heart, which was presented by Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
