The prestigious American Heritage Schools, voted one of the Best Private Schools in America by Niche,
is pleased to announce that its summer programs, including Day Camp and Summer Institute, will be offered in-person or online during Summer 2022. The summer programs will run for nine weeks starting June 13 through August 12, 2022.

Summer Institute:
The American Heritage Summer Institute is a summer educational program that offers over 120 enrichment and reinforcement courses (3 week sessions or weekly seminars), specifically designed with student interest and engagement in mind, to students from PK3 through 12th grade. American Heritage Schools’ course offerings are often viewed as the gold standard in college-preparatory education and the Summer Institute continues that standard.

High school course offerings include advanced test prep, honors and AP level research work, as well as unique pre-professional programs for those interested in future careers in medicine, law, or business entrepreneurship.

The Summer Institute also offers a wide variety of enrichment and reinforcement programs for Middle School (grades 6-8) and Lower School (Pre-K 3 to 5th grade) students as well as one-on-one tutoring options for those looking to enhance their skills and build confidence as we head into the new school year.

The American Heritage Summer Institute features top-notch instructors, all of whom are degreed and certified professionals in their fields.

Summer Camps:
American Heritage Schools’ summer camp programs are designed for children ages 3-14. In addition to Day Camp, specialty camps vary by campus, and include Robotics, Art, Science, Musical Theatre, Video Production and Sports camps. Each camper enjoys age-appropriate activities supervised by American Heritage Schools’ highly qualified staff.

Cabins for ages 3-5 are co-ed, while ages 6-13 have separate cabins for boys and girls. All cabins, which are classrooms during the school year, are air conditioned and campers take pride in decorating them to reflect the cabin’s theme.

To expand the number of recreational activities available to campers ages 8-13, age-appropriate field trips are scheduled. All field trips are supervised by Off-Campus Directors as well as an appropriate number of counselors. Prior to starting camp, campers will receive a schedule of activities.

American Heritage offers Free bus transportation from central locations throughout the tri-county area.

The summer camps are directed by state certified teachers and college or high school students who have been carefully screened by American Heritage Schools. Many of the counselors are students or alumni of the school or have been campers or Counselors In Training (CITs) for a number of years. They are well-trained in safety and camp policies.

American Academy to Host “Mindfulness and Your Child” Featuring Expert Author and Instructor Piero Falci 5/19/22

American Academy to Host “Mindfulness and Your Child” Featuring Expert Author and Instructor Piero Falci
Thursday, 05/19/2022-, 07:00 pm-08:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free

American Academy, a program within American Heritage Schools, is pleased to host “Mindfulness and Your Child,” a virtual event via Zoom on Thursday, May 19 at 7 p.m. This event is part of American Academy’s monthly program, “Experts in Learning Differences” speaker series. Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy Program, the expert speaker for the May event is Piero Falci, an author and educator of mindfulness meditation and mindful living.

Mindfulness is a word that means different things to different people. During this event, Falci will explain why it is important to help children practice mindfulness meditation and prepare them to live more mindfully. He equates mindfulness to a sport in which mindfulness meditation is the practice, and mindful living is the game. While practice is important, what one does in practice is of less consequence than their performance during the game. Viewers will truly be inspired by Falci’s wisdom and learn valuable strategies for children to embrace life and become better human beings.

“There is a lot of violence and insanity in the world, and I am convinced that mindfulness is an antidote to that. I am devoted to helping individuals have insights that may expand their selflessness and compassion and lead to the growth of kindness and care for all sentient beings and the natural environment,” said Falci.

Falci is an educator of mindfulness meditation and mindful living and several well-established programs, such as the acclaimed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. He received his training from the teachers at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and his MBSR Teacher Certification at the Mindfulness Center at Brown University School of Public Health. He also teaches the Mind-Body Skills Group (MBSG) Program developed by the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, as well as the Mindfulness in Schools Project’s .b (DOT-BE) curriculum for teenagers. He has written several books and offers a variety of mindfulness courses on how to apply mindfulness for the improvement of life.

The speaker series is streamed live virtually, as well as available for viewing following each event. The purpose of the speaker series is to educate families about topics that relate to mild learning differences and are relevant today. All of the speakers are experts in the various disciplines of each topic. The American Academy’s goal is to provide families with a safe space to ask questions and strengthen their knowledge about how to ensure the success of their child.

American Academy, a Program Within American Heritage Schools, to Host “Understanding Your Child’s Educational Diagnosis” Featuring Licensed Clinical Psychologist. Dr. David A. Yudell 3/29/22

American Academy, a Program Within American Heritage Schools, to Host “Understanding Your Child’s Educational Diagnosis” Featuring Licensed Clinical Psychologist. Dr. David A. Yudell
Tuesday, 03/29/2022-, 07:00 pm-08:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free

American Academy is pleased to host “Understanding Your Child’s Educational Diagnosis,” a virtual event via Zoom on Tuesday, March 29 at 7 p.m. This event is part of American Academy’s monthly program, “Experts in Learning Differences: A Speaker Series.” Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy Program, the expert speaker for the March event is Dr. David A. Yudell, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist.

Finding the “gift within” a child is essential to building confidence and success in school and life. In this episode of “Experts in Learning Differences,” Dr. Yudell will explain how to understand and use educational evaluations to uncover weaknesses and highlight strengths in order to enhance a child’s schooling and benefit his or her academic and social achievements. Throughout his discussion, Dr. Yudell will provide evidence-based, scientifically proven, and effective tools that motivate a child’s entire support system to work together towards improvement and advancement.

“Every individual needs an area in which to shine, particularly those with difficulties in school. Educational evaluations provide a snapshot of a child’s unique abilities in order to reinforce strengths and ensure that self-esteem, motivation, and ambition are not thwarted,” said Dr. Yudell.

Dr. Yudell practices in Broward and southern Palm Beach counties. He specializes in both child and adult pathology and has extensive experience completing psychological evaluations and testing in private and public schools, the Division of Disability, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and in private practice. Dr. Yudell received his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University and holds a master’s degree in clinical psychology from NSU and a master’s degree in counseling from Seton Hall University.

The speaker series is streamed live virtually, as well as available for viewing following each event. The purpose of the speaker series is to educate families about topics that relate to mild learning differences and are relevant today. All of the speakers are experts in the various disciplines of each topic. The American Academy’s goal is to provide families with a safe space to ask questions and strengthen their knowledge about how to ensure the success of their child.

American Heritage Schools Invites Educators to Its Virtual “Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair” 3/29/22

American Heritage Schools Invites Educators to Its Virtual “Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair”
Tuesday, 03/29/2022-, 07:00 pm-08:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free

American Heritage Schools, the top-ranked PK3 through 12 college preparatory school, invites educators from throughout the country to its virtual “Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair” on Tuesday, March 29 at 7 p.m. From the convenience of their homes, attendees will learn about job opportunities available at the schools’ Broward Campus and Palm Beach Campus and earn 1.5 hours of continuing education credit by attending a keynote address given by nationally recognized speaker and Chief Editor of Cult of Pedagogy, Jennifer Gonzalez.

American Heritage Schools is one of the top four largest private schools in the nation, and among the top 20 largest employers in South Florida. It is headed by educators rather than a board of directors, and maintains subsidiary departments in-house, such as Admissions, Human Resources, Curriculum Development, and PR/Marketing. The schools also offer free tuition for employees’ children and salary supplementation for additional roles, including tutoring during the year and teaching at the Summer Institute over the summer.

The topic of Gonzalez’s webinar is “What Really Makes a Difference in Teaching?” Gonzalez has over ten years of classroom experience, mainly teaching middle school language arts, but also teaching at the collegiate level to train pre-service teachers. She is currently the Chief Editor of Cult of Pedagogy, a website she created, where she works full-time helping teachers of all subjects and grade levels practice and perfect the art of teaching. This session will explore the four rock-solid truths backed by research on how people learn, and how if followed when planning lessons, it is more likely for real learning to happen for students.

“We are always seeking qualified, determined educators who are motivated to work with the best and brightest students in the nation,” said Dr. Douglas Laurie, president of American Heritage Schools. “Our ‘Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair’ will give job-seekers the chance to discover who we are and the current positions we have available, while at the same time get empowered and gain knowledge about how to make a powerful impact when teaching from an inspirational speaker and nationally renowned educator, Jennifer Gonzalez.”

The virtual webinar and job fair is free to attend. To register, please visit: https://ahschool-bd.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_pZkSjfe5ReydqHhfzgMgOA

In just a few short years, everything has changed about how we get our information. It wasn’t that long ago that a few nightly news broadcasts and our local newspaper provided the grist for the American conversation. Diverse groups of citizens were largely working off of the same set of facts – screened for accuracy by editors who were responsible by professional ethics to get the facts right (or print a retraction).

This new media environment is causing political fury and hardening cultural divides. We can agree there is a flood of biased content out there, and some would argue the news is biased. Increasingly, people are frequently seeking out news, editorial, and other content that is aligned to their beliefs, and now more than ever, there are more options for finding that content that leans in a particular political direction.

So, join us for our second dinner of the season as we debate the difference between media, news and information. We’ll touch base on how it might be possible to recognize the most flagrant cases of bias in the behavior of reporters and experts, how we can get out under social media’s influence on what we see and what is re-enforced to us as well as the role advertising and special interest groups play. Ultimately, we’ll debate what the loss of trust means for us as individuals and for our country.

Hallelujah! Sebrina Maria Alfonso will conduct the South Florida Symphony Orchestra’s (SFSO) premiere performance of Handel’s glorious holiday tradition, Messiah! This beloved seasonal masterpiece featuring vocalists Neil Nelson, bass baritone (previously featured as the lead in South Florida Symphony’s 2019 production of Porgy and Bess); Martin Nusspaumer, tenor; Brittany Graham, soprano; Rehanna Thelwell, mezzo-soprano and the 100-member South Florida Symphony Chorus will commence on December 1, at 7:30 p.m., at The Parker in Fort Lauderdale.

Smithsonian magazine writes, “A musical rite of the holiday season, the Baroque-era oratorio still awes listeners 250 years after the composer’s death.” Handel’s popular work, which draws from the Christian Lent and Easter stories, encompasses a musical narrative brilliance that transcends belief systems.”

South Florida Symphony Orchestra will perform Part I of Handel’s Messiah. The concert will open with an extraordinary “Behind the Music” story incorporating a reenactment of the dramatic struggle faced by composer George Fredric Handel as he toiled to complete this holiday masterpiece. Audiences will be enchanted by regally costumed actors narrating meaningful work passages that truly elevate the concert-going experience. The performance culminates with the iconic “Hallelujah” chorus as sung by the South Florida Symphony Chorus, made-up of seasoned chorale singers and community talent. The Chorus is conducted by Dr. Giselle Elgarresta Rios, who will also lead the orchestra at the December 4 concert at Barry University. Rios and Maestra Alfonso collaborated to create the South Florida Symphony Chorus in 2019, which made its debut at the Beethoven 250th celebration in February of 2020.

Tickets for Handel’s Messiah start at $15 for the December 1 concert at The Parker (707 NE 8th St, Fort Lauderdale) and can be purchased online at https://southfloridasymphony.org/messiah or via the Broward Center for the Performing Arts Box Office at (954) 462-0222. Five-concert subscription packages starting at $99 are also available for the 2021/22 Season at The Parker.

On July 1st, The Senate Bill 646: Intercollegiate Athlete Compensation and Rights went into effect. This Bill authorizes certain intercollegiate athletes to earn compensation for the use of their names, images, or likenesses (NIL). The bill also prohibits a postsecondary educational institution and other entities, institutions, and their employees from compensating intercollegiate athletes or prospective intercollegiate athletes for the use of their names, images, or likenesses.

Now the question is was this a good move or a bad move? Will College athletes still favor the love of the game and the alma mater vs. the money that comes from their NIL. Will NIL profit throw off the competitive balance? Will College athletes become instant millionaires?

The panelists spearheading this discussion are Corey Staniscia, External Affairs Director of Dreamfield, and Mary Giardina, Senior Associate AD/Administration and Chief of Staff/SWA at Florida Atlantic University. The event will be moderated by Joe Rose, radio personality on The Joe Rose Show on 560WQAM.

The event is free and open to the public. If you’d like to make a donation to support Village Square programming, you may do so when you register.

Cost: Free

My State MLS, the first nationwide Multiple Listing Service of its kind with agents in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, is hosting free webinars in July, August and September for real estate professionals looking to grow their career and market their listings with an MLS that caters to their specific needs.

The webinars will introduce real estate professionals to My State MLS’s new features, including MLS Affiliate and MH Authority. It will also show attendees how to create video content with Facebook Live. The September webinars will give the audience a refresher on real estate basics, including how to market themselves and how to expand their business.

All webinars take place on Thursdays from 2-3 p.m. ET. Please see the webinar schedule and registration details below:

What is MH Authority? – July 22, 2-3 p.m. ET
Among a shortage of affordable housing options, buyers are increasingly turning to mobile and manufactured homes. However, most consumer real estate websites treat manufactured housing as an afterthought, and sites that are built for mobile/manufactured listings are outdated and riddled with inaccurate listings. That’s why My State MLS created MH Authority, the ultimate consumer-facing source for mobile/manufactured listings. It’s time to make the manufactured housing process easier for buyers, sellers, and professionals. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Going Live – Introduction to Facebook Live for Real Estate – Aug. 5, 2-3 p.m. ET
Creating video content is no longer an optional boost to a marketing strategy – it’s critical for success. Videos receive better social media engagement, increase email open rates, and can even improve SEO. With live streaming services like Facebook Live, real estate professionals don’t even need fancy gear or a lengthy script to get started. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Dear Dave – Advice for Your (Customer) Relationships – Aug. 19, 2-3 p.m. ET
Join My State MLS for sizzling tips on how to keep cool while trying to win new listings, ride the wave of showings and buyer inquiries and heat up your marketing strategy for the best summer yet. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Back to School Series – 2-3 p.m. ET
This September, it’s time to go back to school. Join My State MLS live every Thursday at 2 p.m. ET to brush up on the basics. Attendees will learn how to take their real estate career to the next level.
Sept. 2 – Continuing Education (CE) and Beyond: David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
Sept. 9 – Becoming A Broker: David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
Sept. 16 – Marketing Yourself: Amanda Sternklar, marketing director for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
Sept. 23 – Expanding Your Business: David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

“My favorite singer….” Tony Bennett

Ever since he burst on the jazz scene in the latter part of the twentieth century, The Brooklyn-born, Harlem-based vocalist/guitarist/bandleader/composer Allan Harris has reigned supreme as the most accomplished and exceptional singer of his generation. Aptly described by the Miami Herald as an artist blessed with, “the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat ‘King’ Cole,” the ample and aural evidence of Harris’ moving and magisterial artistry can be heard on his fourteen recordings as a leader; his far-flung and critically-acclaimed concerts around the world, from Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, and Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, to the 2012 London Olympics, and many prestigious bookings in Europe, The Middle East and Asia. “I’m a storyteller through the genre of jazz.”

Pompano Beach Arts presents Karina Iglesias and the Nu-Thang

WHO: Karina Iglesias and the Nu-Thang

WHAT: A virtual concert

WHERE: from the Pompano Beach Cultural Center

WHEN: Saturday June 19, from 8 to 9:30 PM

WHY:In 2013, Karina was a contestant on NBC’s #1 Hit TV Show, The Voice. She made it to the Top 16 on the live shows. She was originally on Adam Levine’s team but was later stolen by Shakira after her epic performance of “Its a man’s, man’s, man’s world” which turned into a YouTube sensation. With her highly-focused artistic vision, rich cultural background and proclivity for harnessing a wide range of production techniques, Karina Iglesias brings forth a strong element of innovation and heralds a much-needed return to the authenticity of pure soul music.

Born and raised in Miami, Florida to Honduran parents, Karina Iglesias’ sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her character and forged her individuality as an artist. With a style equally informed by rhythm and blues, boleros, gospel and hip-hop Karina delivers her performances with the intimacy of a deep soul crooner and the conviction and drive of a dauntless female singer/songwriter.

A veteran of the Miami live music scene, Karina began writing songs during the time she started working extensively with local bands. It soon became apparent that through composing original material, her true artistic identity had emerged. Her emotionally charged and deeply personal lyrics now revealed a depth of character and vulnerability that can only be conveyed when a singer truly connects with their song. Hosted by Tamara G of WLYF 101.5

TICKETS: Available for $15 at http://pompanobeacharts.org/programs/music-series

The David Kikoski Quartet featuring Eric Alexander April 17

David Kikoski has had a long career as one of the New York area’s swingingest pianists. His band features NY all-stars with renowned tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, bassist Joe Martin and the incomparable drummer, Billy Hart. The online-only concert is April 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm EDT, South Florida JAZZ on ViewStub. The $15 ticket also includes 360 days of extended access to re-watch the concert in case you miss the premier. Link: https://viewstub.com/David-Kikoski-Quartet-feat-Eric-Alexander

While Kikoski can frequently get into that hard-core beast-like state of effervescent, muscular swing, he can also play with great beauty, sensitivity and lyricism, especially on ballads and when accompanying vocalists. Tonight, along with preferred rhythm section mates Joe Martin on bass and the splendid, venerable drummer, Billy Hart, is tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, who has been a South Florida JAZZ favorite for several years, now making his fourth appearance. Alexander is one of the most respected and also prolific artists on the jazz scene.

PS: You told us and we’ve listened – you will be able to view the concert to your Smart TV via YouTube. Viewstub will send you an access code for the concert. On the Viewstub viewing page there is link to YouTube from which you then can cast the content to your TV.

The Moroccan caftan has become fashionable throughout dynasties and continents. This basic garment as we know it has played a key role in dressing sultans, generals and nobles for many centuries.

The true origins or perhaps even the genesis of this garment are shrouded in mystery. Some claim it belongs to the Ottoman Empire (based on the appellation), while others attribute it to Moroccan, West African or even Asian cultures.

Junior Achievement of South Florida launches Girls Rule – one amazing initiative and two exciting virtual events that celebrate, empower, and inspire women and girls.

Girls Rule with Title Sponsor Comerica Bank and Presenting Sponsor Bluegreen Vacations, kicks off with The Girls Rule Launch Event on Tuesday, March 16, from noon-1:15 p.m. “We are bringing together today’s resilient and forward-thinking women together to connect around a common vision to transform and advance the world for future generations of women,” said Laurie Sallarulo, President & CEO.

The Launch Event is reserved for sponsors, their guests and supporters and will provide an intimate and real-life opportunity to network. Guests will be inspired by Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc. Her company is best known for its award-winning Hint® water, the leading unsweetened flavored water, with more than 150 employees and $150 million in sales. She also has a podcast and new book entitled, “Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters”.

On Wednesday, March 31, from 3-5 p.m. is the Girls Rule – Ignite Your Super Power Main Event that will connect hundreds of high school girls with powerful women. Students who might not have the opportunity to be influenced and mentored by strong women role models, will engage with inspiring and exciting keynote speakers, attend breakout sessions led by experienced women leaders paired with young female JA Alumni and receive a swag bag.

The event keynote speaker is Ari Chambers, a multi-media journalist, sports host, and social media manager based in New York City. Ari works for highlightHER and has grown its followers to over 70000 and is considered the fastest growing women’s sports platform. Her message: “Women’s Potential is Limitless”.

Breakout session topics will cover self-care, goal setting, financial wellness, self-invention, personal branding, making responsible choices, building positive relationships, self-acceptance, effective teamwork, the power of positivity and effective communication/public speaking.

“We are honored to serve as the title sponsor of Junior Achievement Girls Rule,” said Mo Corker, Comerica Bank Florida External Affairs Market Manager. “Historically, women have played a vital role in our country’s economic recovery and growth, which is why it is important that we invest in girls’ and women’s empowerment. Our bank is committed to equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the tools and money skills needed to navigate the increasingly complex financial landscape. Partnering with JA on this initiative, creates a path to economic freedom for girls who traditionally would not have access to these resources.”

Other Girls Rule partners include Bluegreen Vacations, CITY Furniture, Rick Case Automotive, Castle Group, JM Family Enterprises, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Office Depot, Valley Bank, Jeni Kampeas Chokron, Laurie Sallarulo, Peter Woolf, Hoffman’s Chocolates, RCC Associates, Kaufman Rossin, KEMET Electronics, Chaisteli Insurance Group, Hotwire Communications, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Holy Cross Hospital and Miller Construction Company.

In addition to sponsoring the event, women can join the Women Ignites Futures Movement, powered by CITY Furniture. For a donation of $50, women can submit a 2-minute video sharing their superpower, which will be shared on all social media platforms. For $100, they can also receive a copy of Kara’s book “Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters”.

United Way of Broward County’s Women United, a powerful network of women confronting head-on the most critical issues facing the Broward County community, is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Magnolia events with its in-person “Magnolia After Dark ― Engines Off, Party On!” on Thursday, April 29, 2021.

The event will feature a socially-distanced drive-in and women’s empowerment presentation all in one, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Oasis parking lot in Hollywood, Florida.

All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit United Way of Broward County as they tackle the most complex, critical challenges and create long-lasting positive change in our community.

Dominique Dawes, three-time Olympic gymnast, Olympic gold medalist, a member of the gold-medal-winning “Magnificent Seven” team, and the first Black gymnast to qualify for the Olympic games, will serve as the keynote speaker. She has served as the national spokesperson for the “Girl Power” campaign, which was a youth empowering initiative run by the Clinton administration. She focuses on issues that young people and women face today, such as developing positive self-esteem, incorporating fitness/wellness as part of a healthy lifestyle, and empowering girls to envision their dreams and ultimately reaching their full potential.

The outdoor “Magnolia After Dark ― Engines Off, Party On!” will be an in-person girls’ night out drive-in, with gates opening at 6:30 p.m. and programming taking place 7:30–10 p.m. on a stage. Participants are encouraged to bring “gal pals” of all ages and pack a cooler with food and drinks or enjoy a Teriyaki wok-style meal from Potions in Motion Catering. Social distancing will be observed on-site and all cars will be six feet apart.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is syncing its light show, a series of orchestrated outdoor music and light shows showcasing the LED lights built into all sides of the Guitar Hotel, to the event.

Cathy Donnelly, director of Community Relations for the Castle Group, will be honored as the Woman of Inspiration. Jamie Hagar, employee health and benefits consultant for Marsh & McLennan Agency (MMA), will be honored as the Woman of Promise.

Event co-chairs are Traci Miller of Miller Construction Company, and Nicole Villarroel of Olive & Judd, P.A. Rock With U will emcee the event. Also speaking will be Kathleen Cannon, president & CEO of United Way of Broward County; and Mary Beth Albritton, Ph.D., vice president of Major Gifts for United Way of Broward County.

Raffle items will include a weekend in Broward County with hotel stays and dining (one entry for $25 or five entries for $100), and a basket of fun excursions (one entry for $100).

“‘Magnolia After Dark ― Engines Off, Party On!’ is certain to be a spectacular, memorable event celebrating the 10th anniversary of Magnolia,” said Miller. “A safe, socially-distanced girls’ night out, it will be incredibly entertaining and feature speakers, a mesmerizing light show, optional food, and much more.”

“This year’s Magnolia event is truly special because amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created a unique, exciting evening for all ages to enjoy, safely,” said Villarroel. “We are pleased to have event proceeds benefitting those who have been impacted this past year due to the pandemic and those who were in dire need before COVID-19.”

“We at United Way of Broward County’s Women United are thrilled to have Dominique Dawes speak in-person at this 10th Annual Magnolia event,” said Albritton. “From Olympic gold medalist to Broadway performer, to TV analyst, to president of the Women’s Sports Foundation, Ms. Dawes continues on a path to inspire, motivate and lead, something that our women value and implement into their daily lives.”

United Way of Broward County’s Women United, a powerful network of women confronting head-on the most critical issues facing the Broward County community, is hosting its 9th Annual Magnolia Luncheon virtually on Wednesday, June 3, 2020. Col. Nicole Malachowski will participate in a virtual Q&A style discussion with the “who’s who” of Broward County women.

The event that recognizes women of dignity, strength and perseverance will take place from 11:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The event’s co-chairs are author Susie Levan and April Lewis-Parks, Consolidated Credit.

All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit United Way of Broward County’s COVID-19 relief campaign to raise funds that will be used for two key areas, food assistance and emergency financial assistance.

Col. Nicole Malachowski, USAF (Ret.) defies stereotypes. She is a leader, a combat veteran, the first woman pilot on the Thunderbirds Air Demonstration Squadron, a White House Fellow, and an inductee into both the National Women’s Hall of Fame and the Women in Aviation International Pioneer Hall of Fame. Nicole’s distinguished 21-year Air Force career exceeded her wildest dreams, but the dream came to an end when a devastating tick- borne illness left her struggling greatly to speak or walk for almost nine months. An indomitable spirit, Nicole fought back against overwhelming odds and prevailed. Drawing on stories from her career and personal life, Nicole inspires audiences to rethink the challenges they face every day. She urges them to go beyond resilience and become resurgent.

For the first time with every ticket purchased you are entered into a drawing for the Secret Armoire featuring luxurious goods, jewelry, getaways and more.

Artist, Melissa Vlahos, began The Unleashed Project after experiencing social nudism. By translating the removal of clothes as a metaphor of being vulnerable and seen without the masks we wear, she developed a therapeutic art process for women to express and embody self-love, self-acceptance and body positivity with self applied body paint. The Unleashed Project will be exhibiting, for the first time, it’s collection of 108 women’s photographs taken during this meditative, somatic process.
Join me and the women from the project in celebrating The Unleashed Project opening reception, in collaboration with (DIS)OBEDIENT:Redefining Feminism in a Fractured Reality.

Westfield Broward has partnered with ArtServe, Inc. to present The Art Society at Westfield Broward Art Gallery, a three-month rotating art exhibit. The Art Gallery is dedicated to showcasing and selling the works of local artists, commission-free! The Gallery serves as one of the most diverse in Broward County, where a multitude of cultures converge, creating an energetic atmosphere and a sense of community.

Through April 1, guests are invited to view the exhibition, “BLACK” by artist Jimmy H. Camille, in Celebration of Black History Month.

About the artist: When most teenagers between adolescence and adulthood were transitioning, Jimmy Camille’s unique expressions of art were his outlet. His life-altering journey into the art world began at the age of seventeen. Born in the sunny city of West Palm Beach, Jimmy Camille is a self-taught artist found at many South Florida college campuses free-styling his works to the public. His thought provoking mixed mediums were the catalyst for his title “The Art Monster.” Jimmy’s vision can be seen in the beautiful intertwining of contemporary, pop, and abstract mediums, a platform that adds lucidity and relevance for his fast growing and captive audience.

South Florida JAZZ at Bailey Hall presents the Latin Grammy Award-Winner and Flute Virtuoso NESTOR TORRES QUINTET, Saturday, February 15 at 8:00 PM. With his unique style, Puerto Rican flutist Nestor Torres will delight his audience on a magical night in which his unique sound will take them on a journey of Nestor’s greatest successes throughout his musical career. From mainstream jazz, R&B to Latin classics, Torres promises to present a musical kaleidoscope that makes each of his presentations variegated. Torres who is a native of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, resides in both Miami and Los Angeles, and mentions that 2020 is loaded with new projects, including the release of a new classical music album, which is being produced by the Uruguayan GRAMMY-winning conductor and composer José Serebrier and Julio Bague, vice president of Peermusic. The release of a single is also approaching, where he had a special alliance with the Dominican reggaetonero Mafio, with whom Torres balances his flute skills. He will also be releasing an album of collaborations with important Latin artists in what he calls an avant-garde production.

According to Dr Ron Weber, South Florida JAZZ president and artistic director, “Nestor has retained his Caribbean roots, while exploring jazz in its many forms with intriguing fusions with other genres. While his early inspirations were Dave Brubeck, Tito Puente and Cal Tjader, his early heroes were the classical flute icons Jean Pierre Rampal and his literal ‘man with the golden flute’ successor, James Galway. Beyond them, his influences include Cuban legend Richard Egües, and jazz greats Herbie Mann and Hubert Laws.”

Bailey Hall is located on the A. Hugh Adams Central Campus at 3501 SW Davie Rd. in Davie and offers free parking. Subscriptions and individual tickets are available by visiting southfloridajazz.org, www.baileyhall.org or contacting the Bailey Hall box office at (954) 201-6884.

South Florida Jazz at Bailey Hall presents an Evening with Raul Midón and the Lionel Loueke Trio 6/15/19

South Florida Jazz at Bailey Hall presents an Evening with Raul Midón and the Lionel Loueke Trio
Saturday, 06/15/2019 – 08:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Bailey Hall
3501 Davie Road,
Davie, Florida 33314
Website
Cost: 40-50

Saturday June 15 at 8:00 PM: Genre-bending icons and Raul Midón and Lionel Loueke join forces to present a special night of incredible guitar and vocal wizardry. The acclaimed instrumentalists-singers will perform individual sets of original material in an evening that will culminate in an unforgettable jam backed by Loueke’s dynamic trio.

Raul Midón is celebrated as one of music’s most distinctive and searching voices. Heralded as a “one-man band, who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus,” (NY Times), Midón has collaborated with Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and even Snoop Dogg. Blind since birth, Midón produced-engineered his first Grammy-nominated album, Bad Ass and Blind, which confronts the challenges of blindness and musical composition. Midón’s 2018 follow-up release, If You Really Want, was nominated for a 2019 Grammy award in this same (Best Vocal Jazz) category.

Lionel Loueke brings his West African (Benin) roots and world music experience to jazz to color his unique phrasing as a guitarist and vocalist. A Herbie Hancock protégé for the past 10 years, Loueke has also recorded and toured with varied instrumentalists and vocalists. Praised by Hancock as “a musical painter,” Loueke combines harmonic complexity, soaring melody, a deep knowledge of African folk forms, and unconventional guitar techniques to create a warm and evocative personal sound. Paul Simon raves that Loueke is “one of a rare handful of guitarists who move effortlessly between his West African roots and modern American Jazz”, and Sting cites Loueke as “one the most original, essential and inspiring musicians on our planet today.”

Also featuring Massimo Biolcati, double bass, and Ferenc Nemeth, drums

Bailey Hall is located at 3501 DAVIE ROAD in Davie. Tickets are $40-45-50 at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pesptpm/10268678/1050329. Tickets for students under 25 are $10 with valid ID at the door. More info at the box office: 954-201-6884.

Processing Disorders (PD), are not commonly known, but impact 1 in 25 people – that’s a higher rate than many other disorders including Autism. PD occurs when the brain cannot properly use, move or process incoming information.

Although parents may never think that early is bad when it comes to developmental milestones, children who are advanced and speed through the normal development sequence or even worse, skip steps, are often at an even greater risk of having an undetected processing problem. Similarly, a teen who is having trouble making friends, prefers to be alone, is fidgety, clumsy and uncoordinated, and/or has difficulty with change in routines and activities, could have PD. Untreated PD will impact a child and teen’s ability to succeed at school, home, and with socializing.

Want to learn more?

On Thursday, June 6th, you’re invited to attend a special talk with TheraPeeds Family Center CEO and Founder Dr. Julia Harper, PhD, MS, OTR/L, a therapist and neuroplasticity expert for over 20 years. TheraPeeds Family Center uses evidenced-based, intensive treatment and the science of neuroplasticity to change the brains of those with PD at any age and stage of development, from as early as 6 weeks old. In fact, families from around the world are visiting the new Center in Davie, FL to seek treatment. Below please find the details with a formal invitation to follow.

Would you be interested in joining us?

“Elling is the standout male vocalist of our time.”
– The New York Times

“Since the mid-1990s, no singer in jazz has been as daring, dynamic or interesting as Kurt Elling. With his soaring vocal flights, his edgy lyrics and sense of being on a musical mission, he has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz.” – The Washington Post

Saturday May 18 at 8: GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling is among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. He won the DownBeat Critics Poll for fourteen consecutive years and was named “Male Singer of the Year” by the Jazz Journalists Association on eight occasions. An international jazz award winner, he has also been GRAMMY nominated a dozen times.

Elling’s rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation, scatting, spoken word, and poetry.
