Riverside, CA — Riverside Community Hospital is set to host its 6th Annual Red Dress Fashion Show and Health Expo "Beauty from the Inside out" on Saturday, February 28th at the Riverside Convention Center from 10:00am - 2:00pm. With the support of our community, we have been able to grow the event immensely and now have over 700 women registered for this year's event.
As part of our fashion show, RCH has partnered with a few of Riverside's Downtown clothing and fashion boutiques and Riverside Community College's Cosmetology School who will work under the direction of one of Hollywood's most sought after International Makeup Artist, Edgar Santos.
Edgar Santos is a premier makeup artist who is in the entertainment industry. His resume includes working with top fashion designers, celebrities, important and influential individuals in the entertainment industries, award shows such as the Golden Globes, the Emmy's and Oscar's, and has made guest appearances on Good Day LA, E! Style Network, Jenny Jones Show, MTV and many more.
The purpose of this event is to raise awareness of heart disease in women and to educate them on the unique symptoms, risks factors, signs and warnings of heart disease. With the support of our sponsors such as NAMM CA, Riverside Medical Clinic, the Riverside Downtown Partnership, IHeart Media, Riverside Community Health Foundation, Altura Credit Union and the Riverside Convention Center, our goal is to provide the women with knowledge and tools that they can use to begin to reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke. The proceeds from the event will benefit the American Heart Association.
This event is open to the community. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to visit educational vendor booths, workshops and take advantage of cardiac risk health screenings. In addition, the ladies will enjoy a wonderful lunch while hearing from Riverside Community Hospital's Board Certified Cardiologists, physicians and special guest speaker Diana Wehbe, CEO and Founder of the Purpose Foundation. In 2012, Diana was considered overweight and was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and Ovarian Cancer. Through healthy lifestyle changes and healthy eating, she lost over 100 pounds in 10 months.
The event will conclude with an elegant "Red Dress" Fashion Shown which will include some of the prominent and influential women from the community, and stories from recent heart attack survivors.
