For almost a year, Dustin Robinson, Esq. CPA has been hosting a monthly Psychedelic Series at Soho Beach House Miami. As a result of the series’ success, Robinson is partnering with Space Park Miami to host “Psychedelic Medicine: The Future of Mental Health” on Saturday, April 16.

Presented by Nucleus and LinkMiamiRebels, Michelle Weiner, DO, MPH, psychedelic expert at Spine and Wellness Centers of America, and Julia Mirer, MD, consultant in the emerging field of psychedelic medicine, will join Robinson for this free panel to discuss the progress in medicine with the help of psychedelics.

At the event, attendees will learn firsthand how psychedelics are paving the way for many medicinal advancements. The panel will follow the 4:20 p.m. Space Park Yoga class.

Dr. Michelle Weiner is double board-certified in Interventional Pain Medicine and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr. Weiner focuses on diagnosing and treating spine and musculoskeletal pain as well as chronic migraines at the Spine and Wellness Centers of America. Her unique approach of personalized and preventative medicine focuses on empowering her patients to cultivate health using lifestyle and plant medicine. Her research focuses on using cannabis as a substitute for opioids in chronic pain patients and cannabis’ effect on seniors with chronic pain. Dr. Weiner is the Vice President of Mr. Psychedelic Law and on the Advisory Board for Iter Investments. She uses cannabis and ketamine-assisted psychotherapy as a catalyst to identify the root cause of one’s suffering, optimizing their quality of life.

Dr. Julia Mirer is a consultant in the emerging field of psychedelic medicine, serving as a bridge between eastern and western practices, committed to merging them to help create a new paradigm for integrative health and wellness. She was on the road to a career in pediatrics, but decided to shift gears to explore transformative medicine where she has found her calling in education and advocacy for the responsible use of these medicines. Dr. Mirer believes that a successful future for this field depends on the interplay between policy, research, and clinics and has therefore positioned herself to play a role in each. Nationally, she is an advisor for the Psychedelic Medicine Coalition, lobbying for NIH funding for psychedelic research. In Florida, she is a facilitator for FDA clinical trials with psychedelics. Most recently, Dr. Mirer joined Nushama as director of strategy, where she hopes to combine all her experience to create the vision of a new kind of healthcare system and facilitate Nushama’s goal of humanizing medicine.

Robinson is Founding Partner of Mr. Cannabis Law; Co-Founder of Mr. Psychedelic Law; and Managing Principal of Iter Investments. Along with Iter Investments, he recently launched Nucleus, a data-driven psychedelics platform that is focused on mental health data and technologies.

Island City Stage will host its third Behind the Red Curtain free public forum entitled “State of Mental Health – Recognizing Who Needs Help” preceding the March 17 debut of its production of Tennessee Williams’ Suddenly, Last Summer, a gothic mystery which tackles the weighty subjects of insanity, repression and greed.

This forum will offer a frank discussion about the state of mental health including access for all, modes of therapy and greater acceptance. Experts will discuss traumatic events and their impact on our lives plus offer insight into the history of the mental health profession and how we’ve advanced in recognizing calls for help. The award-winning theatre company invites the community to take part in the discussion.

Guest panelists will include:

• Bob Scardino, LCSW, CAP, Director of Clinical Services, SunServe
• Dawn M. Silver, PhD, Chief Operating Officer, Center for Family Services of Palm Beach County
• Michael Schenker, PhD, Psychologist
• Charmaine S. Borda, Ph.D., LMFT, LMHC, ACC, CHt, Clinical Director, The Blue Couch, Inc.
• Rob Freund, PhD, LMHC, Assistant Professor, Lynn University & Primary Therapist, Comprehensive Wellness Centers

The panel will be moderated by Island City Stage Artistic Director, Andy Rogow.

This forum is supported by SunServe and the Center for Family Services of Palm Beach County, Inc.

Paying homage to one of America’s most celebrated playwrights during his birthday month, Island City Stage will present its debut of Tennessee William’s gothic mystery Suddenly, Last Summer, March 17 – April 17, 2022. Suddenly, Last Summer is part of the theater company’s 10th Anniversary 2021-22 South Florida Season.

On a hot, steamy afternoon in 1936 New Orleans, we find Violet Venable and her niece, Catherine, waging battle in a war that will cement the legacy of Violet’s son, Sebastian. Was he a brilliant artist, devoted son or sexual predator? What really happened last summer?

Directed by Rogow, Suddenly, Last Summer stars Angie Radosh as Violet Venable, Jeanine Gangloff Levy as Catherine Holly and Jonathan Furedy as Dr. Cukrowicz.

Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 season kicked off with The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson in October followed by Andrew Kramer’s Armature, running through February 27. Upcoming productions include The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam from June 9 – July 10, 2022 and One In Two by Donja R. Love from August 4 – September 4, 2022.

In honor of its 10th anniversary season, Island City Stage created The Behind the Red Curtain free public forum series to engage the community in timely, relevant issues that are both addressed in its productions and affect the South Florida community.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® (MSABC) presented by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Hollywood is holding their Making Strides Walk on October 23, 2021, at Huizenga Plaza in Ft. Lauderdale. Making Strides has united communities, companies, and individuals across the country in the fight to end breast cancer for more than two decades. Michele Alter, a 21-year breast cancer survivor and Brittany Zinn, both with the Craig Zinn Automotive Group, are this year’ co-chairs. The two are determined to make this a successful fundraiser. Organizers want everyone to know that even if a person cannot attend in person, the success of this event will depend on enthusiastic individuals who commit to raise funds, in addition to generous donors who will support those participants. The in-person event will keep federal, state, and local health guidelines in mind. As the fall season approaches, event-based decisions may be made to best meet the health and safety needs of everyone involved.

In 2020, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Broward conducted a drive-thru with 174 teams. The event benefited from the support of more than 1,000 participants, local businesses, and organizations, representing various industries. It ranked #1 in the State of Florida with a fundraising revenue of $429,000, and 7th overall of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events in the US. The money raised went to breast cancer research and programs geared towards both men and women. According to the American Cancer Society journal, a Cancer Journal for Clinicians, there will be an estimated 1.9 million new cancer cases diagnosed in 2021 and 608,570 cancer deaths in the United States. That number may be higher given the COVID spike. It’s believed that people with active cancer may be more susceptible to COVID-19, because of their impaired immune system. That’s why the American Cancer Society® Fort Lauderdale wants people to start fundraising between now and October. People can fuel the fight against breast cancer by downloading the American Cancer Society FUNdraising App to their phones. This will allow people to register for the October event and begin asking

To register, go to www.MakingStridesWalk.org/BrowardFL to join the walk by signing up as an individual or team. Be sure to download the app to your phone and link the dashboard to Facebook. Fun Fact: Those that connect their fundraiser to FB, raise seven times more money.

National Pink Day Summer Breast Cancer Awareness 6/23/21

National Pink Day Summer Breast Cancer Awareness

Facebook
Cost: No Cost

On this National Pink Day, June 23rd, The Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative (WBHI)— a leader in disease prevention and early detection community outreach— invites women to “Mask Up and Get Your Mammogram”, following healthcare guidance while ensuring timely screenings delayed by the pandemic.

Women are encouraged to contact WBHI to schedule their mammogram at no cost by calling 305-825-4081. Valued partner Jackson Health System will also be providing heart screenings, presenting a more comprehensive preventive care approach. As WBHI’s community partner that cares deeply about the community, Fresco y Más in Hialeah will host the breast and heart screenings to be held on National Pink Day, June 23rd by appointment only.

Everyone near and far is invited to support the campaign with pink inspired images and messages, and the hashtag #WBHIPinkDay by posting on social media and tagging Facebook @TheWBHI and Instagram @WBHI on National Pink Day, June 23rd for awareness and remembrance.

With pink being the color for breast cancer, WBHI’s summer breast cancer awareness campaign on National Pink Day helps women access critical resources to help beat the odds of breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer over their lifetime; and the death rate has increased. Over the course of the pandemic, mammogram utilization decreased as much as 80%. Delayed, or missed cancer screenings could mean diagnosis at a later stage with a poorer prognosis.

“Our summer breast cancer campaign on National Pink Day reminds women it’s time to ‘Mask Up and Get Your Mammogram’, practicing preventive care while protecting our healthcare heroes in clinical settings,” states Andrea Ivory, WBHI’s Founder and Executive Director. “Breast cancer is diagnosed year-round, but the good news is that early detection, and disease deterrent lifestyles change and saves lives.

Disease prevention and early detection are critical to fostering healthy communities. WBHI is a leader in providing breast and heart health education and resources through a comprehensive strategy to all communities in need in South Florida.

For over a year now, COVID-19 has been negatively impacting many aspects of our lives, including our relationships.

Rocking a red ribbon not only completes any outfit; it shows everyone – especially people living with HIV and their families – your support. On Tuesday, December 1 at 8:30 a.m. The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center (WAM) will present the official kick-off to World AIDS Day, founded in 1988 and themed this year as Rock the Ribbon. Hosted by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, the event will feature special guests Chuck Panozzo, Styx rock band member, and Laura Vivas, recording artist and former contestant on The Voice.

World AIDS Museum will gather elected officials, fellow HIV-related agencies and other stakeholders. Attendees will embrace this community gathering with special performances by Laura Vivas and the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus under the direction of Gary Keating. DJ Aulden Brown will add his flair to rock the crowd.

Special guest Styx rock band member Chuck Panozzo will be one of the voices heard as to why this day is so important. Charles Salvatore “Chuck” Panozzo is an American musician best known as the bass player for the rock band Styx. A longtime member of Styx, he founded the group with his fraternal twin brother, drummer John Panozzo, who died in July 1996, and singer/keyboardist Dennis De Young. He toured part-time from 1999 to 2003, and currently tours with Styx on a regular basis.

Chuck Panozzo is openly gay and has been out since 2001. That year, he also announced that he is living with HIV, and has been involved in campaigning for AIDS awareness and gay rights. In 2006, he spoke with Frontiers for the first time about his decision to come out. The following year, he released his autobiography “The Grand Illusion: Love, Lies, and My Life with Styx.”

Laura Vivas will offer a live performance that will coincide with the rock theme. Her blind audition on NBC’s hit show The Voice, Season 3, resulted in a spot on Christina Aguilera’s team. A native of Puerto Rico, Vivas’ career began at age 18 singing back-up for local artists. Since 2007, she has been the lead singer and the lone female in a six-piece South Florida cover band called Re-Mix. She has opened for artists such as Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Bruce Hornsby and more.

The event, sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, Seasons 52, Michael Murphy Photography and GPR | Goodman Public Relations, will be open to the public and take place outdoors under the covered valet parking entrance. Facial coverings will be required. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at www.worldaidsmuseum.org.

An empowering series of workshops curated by Life House Hotels x Vero Santes

Part 1 – March 29:

Self Hypnosis with Ewa Josefsson

Vero Santes invites certified hypnotist Ewa Josefsson to a conversation about subconscious limiting beliefs, such as fear, shame and guilt. We learn about self hypnosis and its healing powers. Together all the participants of the workshop then co-create the hypnotic experience Ms. Josefsson will lead us through.

Hypnosis is not as mystical as you may believe, it’s actually much more common and conversational. It’s in the way you talk to yourself. It’s in the way you focus and find your flow. And it is how you open yourself up to new ideas and transform your life. Most importantly, hypnosis can make changing easy.

Ewa Josefsson is an emerging licensed hypnosis practitioner of the New York-based Divine Feminine School of Hypnosis. With a background in poetry, lucid dreaming, meditation and yoga, she’s long been known to create a safe space for positive transformation.

Tickets include participation in the event as well as bites and beverages from Mama Joon.

Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale will host its 11th annual Golf Invitational to benefit A Prom to Remember on Monday, March 23, from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., at Fort Lauderdale Country Club, the oldest private country club in Broward County. A Prom to Remember is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the ultimate prom experience for teens who have been affected by cancer, at no-cost to their families.

Funds from this tournament will help to create this year’s prom on May 8 at the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale. Over 200 teens will experience an unforgettable night with Miami Dolphin players, Miami Heat and Miami Hurricane cheerleaders/dancers along with local celebrities, DJs and more.

The tournament format consists of registration and lunch at 11 a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start for a four-person scramble. A silent auction with luxury items awards ceremony and dinner will be held at 6 p.m. This will be the first charitable tournament to be held on Fort Lauderdale Country Club’s newly renovated North Course.

The North Course project, overseen by Kipp Schulties, principal architect of Kipp Schulties Golf Design (KSGD), underwent an extensive renovation including replacement of the greens and the provision of tees between 4,800 yards and 7,100 yards, making the course more enjoyable for both men and women of all abilities. The upgrades created an elevated level of excitement for members adding to the facility’s 18-Hole, Par 72 South Course which was built in 1926, remodeled twice and is often home to many corporate and non-profit events, annually.

In the Broward County area, which has numerous golf courses, Fort Lauderdale Country Club is a select private club that offers 36-holes of manicured championship golf in a forested park-like setting. Visually, the Club is truly a unique oasis as fairways are lined with stately native trees and colorful beds of flowers, as opposed to houses.

The Blue Martini Golf Invitational at Fort Lauderdale Country Club is also sponsored by Cheney Brothers, Daoud’s Fine Jewelry, WSVN and Ultimate Software.

The golf fee to participate in the 11th Annual Blue Martini is $400 per person or $1,600 for a Corporate Sponsorship foursome which includes a tee or a green sign and company recognition. Fees includes lunch, greens fees and golf cart, a golfer’s gift bag, day-of-event contests, on-course beverages and the awards dinner and ceremony.

– City of Miami District 3 Commissioner Joe Carollo
– Miami Parking Authority

About Transform 5th Street:
The focus of this project is to transform SW 5th Street between SW 3rd Ave and 4th Ave in Little Havana into a fully accessible public space for all community members. The street currently separates Jose Marti Park into two isolated sections but can quickly become a space where community members can gather, community events will occur, and people feel safer and more attracted to the park overall.

Working with Little Havana residents, we are bringing a series of activities and events — all inspired by local community members — to SW 5th Street. The goal is to close the street for pedestrian and community use, as an extension of the Jose Marti Park area.

After another tremendous year, TeamFootWorks, producers of the highly-anticipated Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines, announced registration for the 2020 5K Run/Walk is in now open. With more than 38,000 participants in 2019, the race series will once again take over South Florida with three runs beginning in Fort Lauderdale on April 2, continuing in West Palm Beach on April 15 and concluding in Miami on April 23. The United Way (Broward County, Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County) continues to be the annual race series’ charity partner. The series will donate $1 per race participant respectively to each city’s chapter.

“We are excited to be entering the 36th year of what has been an amazing health and wellness journey for thousands of race participants. With registration now in full swing, team captains are rallying their workplace teams to engage in another year of fun and healthy competition. It’s so gratifying to see so many South Florida companies continue to embrace health and wellness as part of their workplace culture. We believe that healthy employees create healthy companies; add to that a race filled with smiles and camaraderie – that’s what the Mercedes Benz Corporate Run is all about,” said Laurie Huseby, race director.

To generate excitement for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines, TeamFootWorks will host team captain rallies on Wednesday, February 5, in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and on Wednesday, February 12, in downtown Miami.

Cost: $15 online from September 2 through October 19, $20 at the door. $10 for additional raffle tickets.

An estimated one in eight U.S. women is expected to develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. While these statistics are alarming, individuals and organizations across the nation continue to do their part to fund vital research seeking a cure. This October, Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale is teaming up with AutoNation, America’s largest automotive retailer, to raise awareness for breast cancer as part of a month-long charitable drive, marked by a new signature event, the Rosé Garden Party on Saturday, October 19, from 8 to 11 p.m. at The Galleria Fort Lauderdale location. Proceeds from the ticketed event, which will feature live entertainment, drink specials and raffles, plus sales from specific drinks all month long, will benefit the Dolphins Cancer Challenge.

Throughout the month of October, Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale will donate $2 for every signature pink cocktail and $2 for every glass of Maison Belle Claire Rosé that is sold to the Dolphins Cancer Challenge. The Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC) was founded in 2010 by the Miami Dolphins organization as the signature initiative of the Foundation’s health area. The DCC’s mission is to improve people’s lives through financial support for innovative cancer research at South Florida’s only academic-based cancer center – Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of UHealth — the University of Miami Health System. Since its inception, the DCC has raised more than $27.5 million, donating 100 percent of participant-raised funds to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. AutoNation is a proud sponsor of the event.

This month-long effort coincides with AutoNation’s partnership with The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale. Starting October 1, two gigantic pink reindeer will be prominently displayed throughout the entire month on the exterior of the mall to signify National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A pink themed vehicle will be displayed with the reindeer. This partnership underscores AutoNation’s commitment to driving out cancer. Through its DRV PNK Intiative, the company has raised more than $20 million for cancer research and treatment, placing its iconic pink plates on every vehicle it sells and services from coast to coast.

The month-long fundraiser will be marked by the Rosé Garden Party, a festive soiree featuring signature sips and culinary treats, plus raffles for designer giveaways and spa packages from sought-after brands and premier experiences.

Admission for this ticketed event includes entrance, a glass of Rosé or a signature Pink drink and a raffle ticket. Tickets are available to be purchased online for $15 from September 2 through October 19 at www.rosegardenpartyftl.eventbrite.com. Tickets are also available for purchase at the door for $20. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $10 each. Fifty percent of proceeds from the pre-sold online tickets and 100% of proceeds from the raffle tickets will be donated to the Dolphins Cancer Challenge.
