Abuela de Miami had the awesome experience of attending the PGA Executive Women’s Day at the Cadillac Championship, Trump National Doral on March 2, 2015.

Now in its fourth year, the event was sponsored by Astellas and the setting was the elegant Crystal Ballroom at the Trump National Doral.  I was invited as part of the influencer group of South Florida Bloggin’ Mamas and from start to finish we received VIP treatment.  The PGA Executive Women’s Day succeeded in creating an unforgettable experience for the participants, and from valet parking, special gifts, delicious lunch, networking time, special tour and event photos, the attention to detail was evident.

My favorite part was listening and interacting with the panel of speakers at the event.  These are women who have succeeded in their fields and are now giving back and empowering other women for success.  Moderated by Local 10 anchor, Kristi Krueger, the real life experience, practical advice and accessibility shared and demonstrated by each of these exceptional women was invaluable and paid dividends on the investment of a few hours of my day.  The Power Panel discussion was led by Michelle Beauchamp, USA Brand Director for Grey Goose & Bacardi, Sonya Canas, Senior Vice President/Commercial Banking Manager of Mercantil CommerceBank, and Dondra Ritzenthaler, Senior Vice President of Sales & Trade at Celebrity Cruises.  Keynote speaker Carla Harris, Vice Chairman, Global Wealth Management, Managing Director & Senior Client Advisor at Morgan Stanley rounded out the event with wisdom from years of experience:  “if you consider yourself a leader in the 21st century you must be comfortable taking risks!”

I returned over the weekend to watch the tournament and I have to give an honorable mention to Imagination Playground Kid’s Zone located at the 18th Hole Fan Zone.  What a great idea and a wonderful experience for the children who attended the event!  The playground was composed of large shaped blocks which included cubes, cylinders, cogs and allowed the kid to create whatever they wanted and as far as their imagination would take them.  Imagination Playground manufactures these innovative playgrounds which encourage creativity, camaraderie and collaboration among the children.  You can get more information at http://www.imaginationplayground.com.

Make sure to be on the lookout for the PGA Tour’s Women’s Executive Day in your part of the country, and definitely plan on attending next year’s event in the south Florida area.  For more information you can visit their website at: www.pgatour.com/woman.html.  You can also follow them on their social media platforms at:

One of Abuela de Miami’s favorite people is Ambar, singer, television personality, business woman, motivational speaker and someone who serves as an inspiration and role model for many women. Recently on a beautiful Miami evening before Valentine’s Day, a number of bloggers, media personalities and influencers were invited to celebrate this special day with Ambar and her great team. A big shout out to Bohemian Babushka, Miami Fashion Trends, Webcity Girls, LatinBlah and the ever present #305Chicas!

Ambar is a fascinating and multifaceted woman, a successful entrepreneur with a heart capable of embracing the whole world, and blessed with the grace to create, design, compose beautiful music and an exclusive line of luxury watches. In January she launched the weekly “Mujer No Pares de Bailar” motivational capsules on her YouTube channel: AmbarMusical, where she shares words of encouragement, wisdom and grace with her followers.

She was most recently nominated in the Female Artist of the Year Tropical category at Premios Lo Nuestro (Univision) for her recent album “Libre” produced by some of the best known personalities in the music industry such as Don Omar among others. She was also recognized as one of the best dressed on the magenta carpet!

Ambar spoiled us with a sumptuous Mediterranean spread, exquisite chocolates, champagne and capped off the evening by giving each one of us a signed watch from her luxury watch collection. Ambar’s motto is “Mujer: No Pares de Bailar,” translated, “Woman: Don’t Stop Dancing,” which she embodies and lives everyday of her life.

Thank you Ambar for being such a great friend to your followers and a Latina we can be proud of! Orgullo latino!
