Yoga Day fundraising event expands to full weekend
Yoga Weekend is Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Home Healthcare, Hospice and Community Services office on Marlboro Street.
"Last year we made about $12,000. The year before that it was about $7,000, so it is definitely growing," Marilyn Shriver, director of development at Home Healthcare, Hospice and Community Services, who organizes the event with Russell.
There are also several other activities from massage, chanting, meditation and acupuncture for people to try.
Admission is by donation, and there are gift bags at the $40, $75 and $100 or more level, Shriver said."It supports the general program, which could be care for people who are uninsured or under insured. A lot of people have insurance, but they have outrageous deductibles. We also use the money to provide items that are not covered by insurance, but can profoundly affect the quality of life of the hospice patient and their family."
