We consider our first 3 events to be our soft openings. On July 20th we will be throwing our Official Kick-off Party for High Heels and Handshakes at the newly renovated roof top pool lounge of the Westin Colonnade in Coral Gables. It is on the 8th floor and overlooks the beautiful Miracle Mile. There will be photographers, press, DJ Papi Love from Sony Pictures, Veev Vodka, Partida Tequila, Hpnotiq Harmonie, Choco Noir Wine, Santos Sangria, Mini-Makeovers by Isabel Amezaga, Morton’s the Steakhouse, business women and more! The attendees can make business contacts, have a great time, and make a difference. Men are welcome, it will be a fun & beneficial time for everyone! High Heels & Handshakes is an organization that merges women’s networking and philanthropy together with a twist of fun.
Our monthly happy hour networking events serve to inspire camaraderie among professional women while donating a portion of the proceeds to partnership programs that support self-sufficiency amongst women in Miami, Florida, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Congo, Kosovo, Iraq, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Sudan. Our goal is to make a difference in our local communities and abroad through organizations that provide opportunities for women to pursue their professional dreams. The charities we are working with for this quarter are “Women for Women International” and “Dress for Success Miami”.
