The Sizzling, Sassy, Spring benefit event for the non-profit Growing Healthy Kids was held May 20, 2014 from 5 to 8 pm at Cork and Tapas, 2101 Indian River Blvd., Vero Beach, FL. The event debuted The Crystal Fusion Collection, then on display at Cork.
The Crystal Fusion Collection, art work by Ella Chabot (https://getshotbyella.com/ ) with glass artist Connie Dexter Spicer of Spice of Life Studio (http://www.spiceoflifestudio.com/) was a limited line of artist glassware.
A collection of vintage, fine glass, and crystal goblets were the canvases for Chabot’s art work as expressed by Spicer via hand etched glass. Each goblet was unique and truly one of a kind.
The Sizzling, Sassy, Spring event also showcased International Trainer & Certified Makeup Artist Pamela Bennett of SeneGence International (www.senegence.com/salsarita) and Barbara Petrillo, Owner/Designer of The Petrillo Collection, LLC, classic, casual and chic jewelry designs (www.thepetrillocollection.com).

Founded by epidemiologist Nancy L. Heinrich, M.P.H. in 2009, the non-profit organization offers hands on healthy eating workshops, garden planting projects, exercise activities, and dietary information to families striving to maintain optimum health for their children.
