Benefiting weVENTURE Women’s Business Center
Cape Canaveral, FL – The hottest ladies’ event on the Space Coast just turned up the heat! Presenting sponsor For Your Best Self Dermatology + Plastic Surgery is pleased to announce that Howie D, of the Backstreet Boys, will make a special guest appearance at the inaugural Wine Women & Shoes Space Coast event on August 26th, 2023, at the Radisson Resortat the Port in Cape Canaveral.
WW&S events are all about putting the “fun” in fundraiser, giving women the opportunity to get glamorous, show off their swankiest shoes, enjoy incredible varietals from top winemakers, shop local woman-owned businesses in the marketplace and see the latest looks from local boutiques and local female designers – all for a great cause. Proceeds from the event benefit weVENTURE Women’s Business Center (WBC),a program of the Florida Tech Bisk College of Business which provides low and no-cost business education and training to entrepreneurs on the Space & Treasure Coasts.
“Having Howie D sing a few songs is a LARGER THAN LIFE addition to the event,” stated Dr. Anita Saluja, founder and managing partner of For Your Best Self. “However, it is also a very sweet gesture. Howie has been his wife Leigh’s PERFECT FAN as she embarked on starting her own business, ESLLA, a year ago. We are grateful Howie has answered THE CALL to support this FUNdraiser that helps support hundreds of aspiring entrepreneurs like Leigh achieve their dreams.”
