Charity dinner decor event Borgne Haiti

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending a charity dinner held by the St. Charles Borromeo Club of Florida, Inc., an organization, which my father helps chair. The dinner takes place annually and proceeds are appropriated to the development of Borgne, Haiti and overall support of the town’s residents. Proceeds from this and other events help fund the groups annual medical mission trip to Borne in July. The trip brings nurses, doctors and other medical professionals to the town and allows hundreds of residents and visitors from nearby towns to receive medical care. The group also provides book bags and other school supplies for school children as well as lends efforts towards beautification of the town.

The St. Charles Borromeo Club of Florida, Inc., has made tremendous strides in improving the quality of life for the people of Borgne and by the looks of it will continue to do. I’m proud of my Father and his colleagues for their continued commitment to this cause and applaud the work they are doing for Borgne and its people. Here are a few pictures from the dinner.

When I was invited by my friend Amanda to attended a charity event benefiting breast cancer I was more than happy to lend my support. When I found out the event would be held at an all male revue, I knew this would be an interesting time to say the least.

On Monday night, Glam-A-Thon® held their annual “Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye” event at the infamous LaBare Florida®. If one were to judge from turnout alone, you would be wise in guessing that the event was a success. Ladies turned up in droves, eagerly lining up outside ready to get the fun started.

Event organizers worked their magic with the décor. Sponsored in part by Skinnygirl® Cocktails, the explosion of pink was more than fitting. The entire setting was reminiscent of a glammed out Barbie dream house.  Ladies signed up for raffles on pink and blinged out items and struck some fierce poses on the Step and Repeat before happily filing into the venue.

As for what happened inside you’ll have to use your imaginations ladies. This is about all I can show you here but just know that a good time was had by all and it was all in the name of a good cause.

The Glam-A-Thon charity raises funds to benefit Broward Health Foundation and the woman of Ft Lauderdale. Assistance is given to underinsured and uninsured women in the South Florida area to receive lifesaving, early diagnostic testing and mammograms, while those battling breast cancer receive financial help, rides to and from treatment and medibras for after surgery.

So I posted about the Wine Women & Shoes Event and how great that was.  Now I’ll give you the scoop on what I wore. My thought process was to go with something dainty and chic to mirror the tone of this this sophisticated but fun brunch. My lace shirtdress featured a full skirt with a nude colored underlining. I thought about matching my shoes to the underlining to compliment the demure look but uhh… you know that thought lasted about all of 2 seconds. Clearly my urge to add bold color and send mixed messages is never-ending.  I opted for a teal clutch, green and teal shoes and touches of coral in the accessories to pull my nice but slightly naughty look together.

I had the pleasure of attending the 3rd annual Wine Women & Shoes event benefiting the Miami Children's Health Foundation, which supports providing world class care to children at the Miami Children's Hospital. The event which was sponsored by Roger Vivier, included wine tastings, a fashion market place, silent auction, luncheon and fashion show.

Local celebs like news anchors Laurie Jennings and Belkys Nerey were in attendance. Of course all the attendees were dressed to the nines. One could expect nothing less. Stylish ensembles were smartly coordinated with fabulous handbags but all glory was left for the bevy of statement making shoes and then there were the shoe contests...

The event's designated "Shoe Guys" did their part in contributing to the shoe-loving ambience. I could almost think of no better way to spend the afternoon than by sipping on wine while gazing upon shoes presented by men on silver platters and all for a noble cause to boot. Who thought of this ingenious concept?

The event spotlighted Harrison Breslow and his family in a touching story about his battle with a sudden heart condition and the extraordinary efforts taken by Miami Children’s Hospital to save his life. Not just a heart-warming story, but also a great reminder of how important it is to support organizations like this. If we can have a little fun mingling with interesting women and shoe gazing while doing it, well… then that’s just all the better.
