A Fundraiser for Hurricane Matthew Relief will be held on November 19, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Christ Church Harrison Center at 311 Middle Street in New Bern. This ticketed event is organized by Confluence Yoga and Dance joined by local licensed massage therapists, bodyworkers, and Reiki practitioners and is in cooperation with Christ Episcopal Church. Tickets for the event are $30.00 for a family day pass, $20.00 for an individual day pass and a drop-in rate of $10.00 for those attending after 12:30 p.m. Day pass tickets may be purchased by cash or check in advance or at the door. Drop-ins are cash only. One hundred percent of the funds raised will be administered directly to Craven County families impacted by the floods.
In support of our neighbors affected by the floods of Hurricane Matthew, this family-oriented fundraiser will offer several mini-classes in movement & healing arts, along with a silent auction, raffles, healthy refreshments and the opportunity to gather with grateful hearts. Eight mini-classes will be offered and include a Family Fun Dance Party, Smiling Yoga for Families, Partner Yoga, Yoga Therapy and Sweet! Salsa Steps. In addition, chair massage and Reiki energy sessions will be available.
Craven Early College Junior Civitans have volunteered to help and participate with the classes for children. Many local artists and businesses have donated items for the silent auction and Copy & Print Warehouse is the event print sponsor. For more information and to purchase advance tickets, call Sherry Boehme at 252-670-6881 or Jane Peele at 252-670-3932.
