“The most popular of the many events was the Aqualicious Pool Party, held at the recently renovated official host hotel The National.”
On May 11, the Aqua Foundation for Women will celebrate 14 years at the private residence of J. Michael Heider and Thom Carr. The upscale cocktail party will feature appetizers and an open bar for guests. Robin Schwartz, executive director of Aqua Girl, said it’s more than just a networking event.
Discussion will highlight transition and how to address name change and other issues of identifying, resume-building, how to dress for work and interviews, health care access and employee rights in Florida.
This year, Aqua Girl events start at 9 pm May 15 – with a live music event at Churchill’s – and go on until May 19 when you can catch the last good vibes at Afterglow ’til 3 in the morning. With activities ranging from concerts to wine-and-cheese tastings with happy hours, pool parties, and a ton of dancing to be had in-between, it’s a jam-packed babe pool waiting for you to take the dive.
