Wellness Party at William Way to Benefit Tara Lessard



Earlier this week, we wrote about the crowd source fundraiser that was established to assist Tara Lessard, a Gayborhood staple who is currently battling ovarian cancer. There’s yet another way to help Ms. Lessard, and this one involves an afternoon of wellness for body and spirit.

The William Way Community Center will be hosting a Healthy Party on January 10 from 1 pm to 4 pm to raise funds for Tara. The event will feature a couples massage class presented by Freedom Massage, plus 10-minute chair massages for those who attend. Additionally, there will be mini-lectures on yoga and meditation, plus an intention circle for the community to share best wishes for Tara.

The event is currently looking for a food sponsor: Any interested vendors are asked to contact the party’s organizer, Diane Matkowski, at info@freedomassage.com.

The Healthy Party is a fundraiser for Ms. Lessard, and although there’s no set admission price, attendees are encouraged to donate $25-150. The goal is to raise $10,000. For more information on the day’s festivities, visit the Facebook event page.
