This month’s inaugural LiveWell event raised nearly $5,500 for three local charities.

The money was raised from $10 entry fees at the Jan. 20 event at the Arts and Recreation Centre in Camana Bay. The funds went to Cayman Heart Fund, the Breast Cancer Foundation and Cayman HospiceCare.

More than 1,000 visitors attended the health, wellness and beauty event, which was organized by Cayman Health, a publication of Pinnacle Media. It featured fitness demonstrations, health talks, and beauty and makeup treatments.

At least 50 exhibitors, including hospitals, clinics, medical and wellness practitioners, boutiques and spas, participated in the day-long event.
