The Desert Health® Wellness Award

We invite you to join us for a festive evening of good food, friends, and organic libations as we celebrate the over fifty nominees – and the ultimate winners – of the first annual Desert Health® Wellness Awards.

The evening will include dining stations offering an array of power proteins, vegetarian delights, and Mediterranean delicacies. There will also be an American Classics station for those who feel the urge to splurge, because as we all know, “health is a choice.” Each guest will also receive a complimentary beverage from our friends at Bonterra Organic Vineyards and local farm-to-glass brewery, Coachella Valley Brewing Company. Additional beverages will be available for purchase.

The casual dinner will be followed by newly announced guest speaker, Steven Gundry, MD, and the much anticipated awards ceremony. There will also be a silent auction benefitting Coachella Valley Volunteers in Medicine (CVVIM) where you can bid on services from Massage Envy, The Vein Institute, Transcendental Meditation®, La Quinta MedSpa, and J. Russell Salon to name a few, as well as, rounds of golf at PGA WEST, luxury accommodations from the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells, and certificates to a variety of valley restaurants. All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit CVVIM, the valley’s only free medical clinic which is staffed by volunteer doctors and nurses and serves those in our community most in need.

All guests will also receive a complimentary gift bag with a variety of wellness and promotional offerings from participating sponsors. The offerings will enhance your own path to wellness, and the bags will come in handy as we work toward a plastic shopping bag-free Coachella Valley!

This awards celebration is a dream to recognize all of the individuals and organizations whose efforts – large and small – are contributing to the spotlight of health that shines on our valley. They are teachers, coaches, doctors, non-profits, companies and more who have made a positive impact on others within our community, and in turn have been nominated for a Desert Health® Wellness Award.

We could not do it without the generous support of our Presenting Sponsors Desert Regional Medical Center and JFK Memorial Hospital, our Dining Station Sponsor Integrated Wealth Management, our Community Sponsors Eisenhower Wellness Institute and KMIR/KPSE TV, and our beverage sponsors Coachella Valley Brewing Company and Bonterra Organic Vineyards.

Look for the Official Event Program to appear as an insert to the May/June issue of Desert Health® and JOIN US on Wednesday, May 20, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm, at Desert Willows Golf Resort for the first annual Desert Health® Wellness Awards.
