$20 for Admission to Health & Beauty Event ($40 Value)
Health & Beauty, the latest in a series of Maxim Life Fair events, begins at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26. Until 8:30 p.m., attendees can snack from a gourmet buffet and sample organic wines while networking with other guests, undergoing nutritional assessments, browsing boutique booths, and entering raffles. A health coach, internist, and team of dermatologists will give health presentations throughout the evening. The centerpiece event is a live cooking demo by Coco Frey of nutrition group Eat the Truth, with samples throughout. All proceeds go to the Children's Organ Transplant Association in honor of Talia Bennardo, a 15-year-old currently recovering from a double kidney transplant.
Maxim Life Fair
Maxim Life is in the health business, offering wellness coaching, supplements, and nutrition screenings. But health isn't just a business plan for the company—it's also personal. When local teen Talia Bennardo was diagnosed with the incurable kidney disease FSGS and learned she'd need a risky double kidney transplant, a group of friends and local merchants banded together to create the Maxim Life Fair, with admission fees going to Bennardo's care. After the transplant was performed, the organizers decided to keep hosting monthly events to support research and care for young organ-transplant patients.
Attendees are benefitting their own bodies, too: the health-focused fairs share information on health and nutritious cooking through the expertise of doctors and other wellness pros. And it's not all about eating your vegetables. Past events have included boutique trunk shows, organic wine tastings, and other fun activities.
