When businesses work together, great things happen. Last year was the inaugural Martinis and Bikinis, a fashion and art night out fundraiser at The Canopy Rooftop Lounge at The Birchwood. The event, organized by Cerulean Blu and Heavenly Heels and hosted by the nonprofit Heels to Heal, sold out quickly and helped raise awareness -- and much-needed funds -- for CASA, which provides resources for victims of domestic violence.
This year the event is back, and has been moved down the street to a larger space, the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE in St. Petersburg. The event takes place 6-9 pm April 10 and tickets are now available.
The evening features a fashion show produced by Cerulean Blu and Heavenly Heels; gallery access to the MFA’s Monet to Matisse exhibition; and The Best Martini on Beach Drive Competition with drinks from 400 Beach Seafood & Tap House, Parkshore Grill, the Museum of Fine Arts and The Vinoy Renaissance.
