Las Vegas, Nevada (September 12, 2014)–This year, the organizers of Las Vegas' PGA TOUR event, the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, are asking fans and others involved with the event, "What's your tradition?". The tournament celebrates its 32nd-straight year in 2014 and one of the best new traditions of the tournament is the annual Kick Off Your Heels luncheon which takes place in Hyde on The Hill overlooking the course and annually features an accomplished woman as the keynote speaker. This year, Dr. Cortney S. Warren, a PHD and UNLV psychology associate professor, is the guest speaker. The mistress of ceremonies is Mercedes Martinez from Mix 94.1 FM.

Through her travels at a young age, Warren noticed how cultural and environmental conditions impacted one’s self-image. As a previous University of Las Vegas Nevada professor and with countless body image and eating disorder studies under her belt, Warren created choosehonestly.com where she aims to help the public understand themselves and live more fulfilling lives.
New this year, a special exhibit of jewels and gems will be provided by D&R House of Diamonds while Downtown Summerlin and New Image Advanced Laser Skin Center provide special offers for the attendees. Robert Mondavi will return to offer delectable wine tastings complemented by delicious fare, and Wells Fargo, the event’s longest standing sponsor, continues their involvement for the fourth consecutive year as the event allows the bank to support the initiatives of Shriners Hospitals for Children locally while providing a relaxed setting to advance their business interests.
The event is coordinated by and held for many of the best known and most highly respected women in the city of Las Vegas. Thirty seven (37) tables of ten were sold in 2013 raise money for Shriners Hospitals for Children, the host and beneficiary of the week-long professional golf tournament. Since the event's inception in 2011 over $165,000 has been raised to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children
