A few week’s ago, my friend’s Kevin Ng & David T. Wilson hosted the ultimate yoga event – YOGACRUISE – Benefitting Seattle Children’s Hospital. We set sail on Lake Washington via Argosy Cruises’ The LADY MARY, just before sunset.
I’m beyond impressed with Kevin and David, well-known active leaders in the Seattle yoga community, for orchestrating such a flawless, successful YOGACRUISE fundraising event. And most of all, for showcasing the other side of yoga. It can feel like a party – and events like this bring awareness not only to the beauty of the practice, but also providing new avenues of fundraising.
Aboard YOGACRUISE there were 2 Tandem Flow Yoga classes (led by Kevin & David)…
A little sampling…
And a delicious dinner by Watercress Vietnamese Kitchen, followed by FROST doughnuts.
…we finished the cruise with dancing thanks to DJ PK Beats and several amazing giveaways (including Fitbits, Nordstrom gift cards, personal training, etc.).
Exceeding expectations, YOGACRUISE ended up raising $6100 for Seattle Children’s Hospital!
We hope that this event helped you to renew, revive and reinvigorate a sense of balance and harmony in your lives. More importantly, we wanted you to experience what happens when positive minds, thoughts and souls come together for a common cause. – Kevin & David
