Originally founded in October 2010 in Los Angeles, the Holistic Chamber of Commerce is an international trade organization for holistically-minded professionals, practitioners, business owners, and resource providers. Florida became the 2nd state next to California to quickly embrace the Chamber and its holistic philosophy and soon there were chapters up North in Florida and on the East Coast of Florida.
Locally, President, Lainie Sevante’ Wulkan launched the Holistic Chamber of Commerce SWFL in June 2018 with its first Chapter in Cape Coral. It soon became the fastest growing chapter in the history of the HCC Organization. Wulkan then added Chapters in Fort Myers and Naples allowing the members to have three convenient options to meet throughout SWFL and bring greater awareness to their holistic businesses.
Now with an extensive membership base of health and wellness businesses, the Chamber will hold their first Faire to showcase their member’s vast array of specialties to the SWFL community.
On Saturday April 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. the Holistic Chamber of Commerce of SWFL is holding their First Annual Health & Wellness Faire at the Crowne Plaza Bell Tower located at 13051 Bell Tower Drive in Fort Myers. The event will include specialists, practitioners, holistic products and services from members representing all three chapters. The faire is geared to bring wellness to all aspects of a person – mind, body & spirit.
The Holistic Chamber of Commerce Health & Wellness Faire is presented by Natural Awakenings Magazine, Zeta Global Radio, and Muscle Tuners International, Inc. It is sponsored by Lotus Blossom Clinic and Amare Global.
