La Mesa Fit Body Boot Camp is well-known in the community for its fundraising events and community outreach. On Saturday, February 16, owner JJ Brawley is excited to be hosting the Holistic Life Expo in conjunction with Dane Dormio, owner of the newly opened La Mesa tai chi school Chai Tea Tai Chi to help raise funds for Jeans for Justice.
“Jeans for Justice is a nonprofit organization that educates and mobilizes young people and communities to end sexual violence,” says Brawley. “The Holistic Life Expo will help to raise funds for the organization and also give people in the community a great day of speakers, performances, free gifts and vendor booths promoting healthy and holistic lifestyle options.”Brawley says that supporting Jeans for Justice is a no-brainer for a company so focused on women and women’s health."
“Some statistics say that one out of four women will be a victim of sexual violence in their lifetimes”, says Brawley. “A lot of our clients are women of all ages and all backgrounds. We care for them while they’re here and we also care about what happens to them when they’re not. Supporting a group like Jeans for Justice is just a natural extension of what we do and why we do it.”
While admission to The Holistic Life Expo is free to the public, VIP tickets are being sold for donations of $5 each to help raise funds for the non-profit. VIP admission entitles guests to not only the presentations given by speakers and performances by area artists but also a free raffle ticket and admission to the High Vibe Dance Jam & Drum Circle following the event from 9 PM to midnight. There will also be a silent auction to add to the fundraising efforts.
Everyone who attends will be able to attend presentations being held by six local community leaders, including Jon Block of The Here & Now Network for Holistic Entrepreneurs, Tanya Paluso of the women’s empowerment organization Tribal Truth, and Dane Dormio, event coordinator and owner of Chai Tea Tai Chi.
The Holistic Life Expo will run from 4pm to 9pm, with doors opening at 3:30pm. The event is being held at La Mesa Fit Body Boot Camp at 8322 Parkway Blvd, La Mesa, CA 91942. There will also be an after party with a DJ until Midnight.
