Health for Hip Chicks at the McAlpin – 6/27

If you’re looking for something unique to do this weekend look no further than the Health for Hip Chicks event this Saturday, June 27 from at the McAlpin Building downtown.

The health expo portion will run from 1pm to 5pm and will be followed by a fashion show from 7pm to 10pm on the Purple People Bridge (organizers tout a “surprise” ending). Event organizer, Art of the Spa, says that day passes (buy online) which include the conference and fashion show are tax-deductible as a charitable donation. $15 pre-event, $20 same day.

Health for Hip Chicks is part of the Red, Pink & Blue health series which benefits American Heart Association., Pink Ribbon Girls and Spa4Diabetes. Art of the Spa has plans in the works to take the Red Pink & Blue concept national starting in Los Angeles.

Art of the Spa says that they envisioned a “health event in an un-intimidating, cozy atmosphere that would get women excited about being proactive in their health.” The event is also being co-produced with CincyChic‘s involvement in Red, Pink and Blue.
