– The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open invites the women of Las Vegas to ditch their heels and flaunt their favorite pair of flats for the Women’s Day Kick Off Your Heels Luncheon on Tuesday, Oct. 14. Mercedes Martinez of KMXB-FM, 94.1’s “Mark and Mercedes in the Morning” radio show is set to host the luncheon as the mistress of ceremonies.

The event will feature a highly anticipated presentation by licensed psychologist Dr. Cortney S. Warren.

As a previous University of Las Vegas Nevada professor and with countless body image and eating disorder studies under her belt, Warren created where she aims to help the public understand themselves and live more fulfilling lives.

Exciting items will be presented in a silent auction followed by a delicious meal accompanied by the distinct tastes of Robert Mondavi wines atop The Hill, the tournament’s hospitality venue overlooking the 16th, 17th and 18th holes at TPC Summerlin.
