Dr. Charles Kent has practiced sclerotherapy since 1998, adding more treatment methodologies—such as vein closures—as he continued training over the years. His sister-in-law, nurse Linda Schank, joins him in his practice, lending her steady hand to perform wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections and Lipotherapy, an injection that breaks down fat membranes in unwanted curves.

"Tailgating With a Purpose" raises funds for Covenant Hospice—a local care service for people with life-limiting illnesses—with three hours of outdoor beer drinking, grilled edible munching, and prize chasing. Guests can bask in garnet and gold at Florida State's Doak Campbell Stadium as they sip a frosty beer or practice for gridiron season by punting barbecued foods through the goals. Tailgaters can let the Wilson Dean Band and the Sarah Mac Band rock them to the core with a night of live, breathing tunes that fill the air with good vibes and resonate with philanthropy. Visitors can enter a prize drawing to win tickets to the Florida State vs. Oklahoma football game, peruse a silent auction, or compete for the Best Tailgating Attire prize by making a ball gown out of astroturf and strategically placed mouthguards.

Personal-training sessions can incorporate cardio exercises, strength training, and stretching, and small-group tours highlight the nutritional pinnacles and pitfalls inside a local grocery store. Private or duet Pilates sessions and other group fitness sessions build health-centric friendships as they carve core muscles into sculptures of Charles Atlas.
