Fashionably Red

Flaunt your Fashionably Red ensemble with the SFLHCC

It is that time of year when the South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SFLHCC) and the Chamber’s Hispanic Women’s Society Network holds their annual Fashionably Red lunch in honor of Heart Disease Awareness Month.  The women that are responsible for this yearly event work tirelessly to make this event a memorable and educational experience for all.  This year’s event will take place at the Colonnade Hotel in Coral Gables on February 28th.  Liliam Lopez President and CEO of the SFLHCC has arranged a panel discussion by Dr. Joseph Lamelas, M.D. Chief of Cardiac Surgery for UHealth and Miguel Diaz, M.D. Intervention Cardiologist, at Palmetto General Hospital.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnicities in the United States. One person dies every 37 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease. About 647,000 Americans die from heart disease each year.  These numbers are serious which is why your support and attendance is sought and appreciated.

The moderator for this year’s event will be Pam Giganti EMMY Award winning journalist. Host of “Your South Florida” on South Florida PBS adjunct professor at the University of Miami’s School of Communication and former NBC6 news anchor.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Tickets for members of the chamber are $100 nonmembers are $120. For more information you can visit https://sflhcc.com/ or you can call 305-534-1903.
