Saturday July 21st was oranj Fitness’s fourth annual OLOYC and like all the ones before it, it was a great success! This annual event is a fundraiser for the food bank, in order to help bring awareness to their year around needs. Not only did they bring the food bank to peoples attention, through the generosity of all that came out over 800 pounds of food was donated.
Oranj made this event as accessible as possible even offering child care at their studio; also by food donation. The studio was closed so that all the staff could go out and support the event, this meant the entire studio turned into a huge play area for the little ones. Fun was had by all!
Vital Waters being the fabulous and community minded company they are donated water so that everyone was well hydrated. On top of that Vital Waters also has on going programs with the food bank and many other community organizations around town to support them throughout the year. Check them out, for great water that supports our community.
SW Audio set up the sound equipment so that Shawn Hook could play live. The music was awesome, Shawn being a yogi himself was able to connect with the instructors and the crowd to enhance the one hour practice. Shawn was a big hit, he volunteered his time and donated 10% of all his merchandise sales (which sold out) to the food bank.
The setting is perfect and every year more and more people get involved. It is exciting to see the community coming out to support one another and share in this experience.
