On Thursday, September 22, 2016, we held our first annual Tea Party and Silent Auction fundraiser at the Remedy Teas Cafe in Capitol Hill. The Tea Party & Silent Auction was a HUGE success!

 

Thanks to you, our amazing Street Yoga advocates, we raised over $6,000 towards bringing the benefits of yoga and mindfulness to at-risk youth!

 

FullSizeRender-2In collaboration with Chris Glenn (owner of Remedy Teas) and his team of tea experts, we launched a special tea blend that is a soothing, grounding and tasty blend of organic rooibos, tulsi holy basil, honeybush, peppermint leaf, cinnamon bark and ginger root. The tea name, Balasana Bliss, came from our winning entry of our Name-Our-Tea contest that ran back in July 2016. 

We had a special tea tasting (both hot and cold variations of Balasana Bliss) during the event. Safeway and local eateries,Sand Point where to buy phentermine online cheap Grill and Mighty-O Donuts, provided treats to accompany the tea.

 

Our silent auction drew in a lot of excited bidders during the event. The amazing items up for bidding included tickets to Disney California Adventure Park, Teatro ZinZanni SeattleEMP Museum, Pacific Science CenterWaterways CruisesParamount Theatre, Jami Sieber and the Northwest Yoga Conference. Other exciting auction items included an autographed book by Anson Laytner; massage session with Sally Halbett; handcrafted tea set by Adrien Miller; dinner experience at Mana Restaurant; photography sessions with Amie Stafford; wellness basket from Rainbow Natural Remedies; class packages to Bria PilatesAditi Yoga | BodyworkCorePower Yoga and Seattle Yoga Arts; spa passes to Ladywell’s Vitality Spa & SaunaTangerine Spa and Banya 5.
