To offer area residents a healthy start for 2011, Vi Aventura is participating in a free health fair complete with raffles, music and safety presentations from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 22nd in the Hallandale Cultural Center, 400 S. Federal Hwy., Hallandale Beach.
“This fair is a collaborative effort of the best health and wellness entities in our area,” says Marjie Aloni, Vi Aventura’s community relations manager. “They have pulled together to ensure that our residents can start the new year off with a healthy and positive approach.”
The fair was organized by the Hallandale Beach Chamber of Commerce Health and Wellness Committee, which Aloni chairs. In addition to Vi Aventura, sponsors include the City of Hallandale Beach, Mount Sinai Medical Center, the Hallandale Medical Center and the Hallandale Beach Chamber of Commerce.
“Local police and fire rescue personnel will be onsite offering important tips to keep the citizens of our community safe,” Aloni says. “Prevention, nutrition and education are vital elements of a healthy and long life. This health fair will offer our growing community an opportunity for everyone to address their health concerns and learn about health-related services offered in our area.”
On the card are free blood sugar and cholesterol screenings as well as blood pressure checks. A DJ has been enlisted to oversee the music and serve as master of ceremonies. In addition to raffles held throughout the event, there will be complimentary food and beverages.
Cost is free; $250 for vendors, who will receive an exhibit table and two chairs, and can have access to distribute their literature to over 1,000 expected attendees. They will also have their name printed in the program book.
