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!
In 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.
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 Seattle, EMP Museum, Pacific Science Center, Waterways Cruises, Paramount 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 Pilates, Aditi Yoga | Bodywork, CorePower Yoga and Seattle Yoga Arts; spa passes to Ladywell’s Vitality Spa & Sauna, Tangerine Spa and Banya 5. Our silent auction alone raised $2,630!
