The Wildlife Center of Virginia Gala is Saturday, October 17! This annual event is one of the most important ways that the Center raises money to support their wonderful work saving wildlife.
The Wildlife Center cares for thousands of wild animals each year – from hummingbirds to bear cubs, from bunnies to bald eagles, from turtles to … oh, you get the idea. They do amazing things!
(Have you watched their Bear Cub cam lately? You should!)
Lots of cool items are available – all donated by businesses, artists, and other nice folks. There’s handcrafted jewelry and quilts, beautiful original artwork, tickets to local events, vacation outings, and unique sports and music memorabilia.
You can see a selection of items that you can bid on here.
I’ve got a couple things I hope you’ll consider.
A 90-MINUTE BLISSFUL PEACEFUL HANDS HOT STONE MASSAGE at my Madison, Virginia Studio. My hot stones are sweet as can be. They’ll melt your tight muscles and take you to your happy place. You really should meet them!
As one of my clients wrote in a Facebook review:
“I recently had my first hot stone massage with Jackie and I must say, it was amazing!! I have been going to Jackie for her regular massages for quite some time and decided to treat myself after the holidays. I was not disappointed. The blend of the oils, hot stones, and Jackie’s wonderful hands, left me in total bliss! I would recommend the experience … at least once … but I bet you’ll go back for more. I know I have my next one scheduled already.”
“PEACEFUL HANDS YOGA IN A BASKET” includes “yoga-riffic” treats to help you start, or expand, your home Yoga practice. You’ll find six Yoga DVDs of instruction, practices, and relaxation; two music CDs that are perfect inspiration for your practice or, really, for any part of your day; and a few other Yoga-inspired goodies. Just add one Yoga mat and one You … and you’re ready to go!
SONGBIRD PAINTINGS. Local artist Debbie Hunt painted a series of four beautiful songbird paintings — Tufted Titmouse, Chickadee, Eastern Bluebird, and White-Breasted Nuthatch — exclusively for the Gala.
