Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center hosted their inaugural Posture, Purses and Prosecco event on March 27 and successfully raised $2,320 for the Junior League of the Emerald Coast.

This spring preview took place at the office of Dr. Shawna Hogan in Regatta Commons across from the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce. More than 100 women attended and enjoyed wine tastings by Deliver my Wine, hors d’oeuvres by Elephant Walk, and live music by Bo Adams. Local designer consignment boutique LuxExchange displayed an array of designer handbags, wallets and jewelry that were available for purchase with a portion of proceeds benefiting Junior League.  

“It was such a wonderful opportunity to sip, shop and socialize while raising money for such a wonderful cause,” said Dr. Hogan. “My practice has a special interest in the care of expectant mothers and children, so working with the Junior League was a great way to convey that message to the local women in the area.“  

The event also included complimentary chair massages with Orlando Branch, voted “Best Massage Therapist” by the readers of Destin Magazine. Ladies also enjoyed exploring a sizeable silent auction with packages valued over $1,000. Greeted with a customized wine glass of prosecco and presented with a goody bag upon departure, ladies were pleased with the outcome of the event.

“The Junior League of the Emerald Coast is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children and women in our local communities through volunteering and special projects,” said Molly Carter, JLEC’s vice president of communications. “We are so grateful to businesses like Regatta Chiropractic and Laser Center and LuxExchange for sharing this vision and supporting our endeavors.”
